Some of the medical care and treatment workers’ compensation should pay for includes:
Workers’ compensation benefits should cover your ambulance transportation to the hospital and any life-saving or sustaining treatment you receive on the way. It will also pay for the care you receive in the emergency department, including medical imaging and laboratory testing to determine the type and severity of your injuries.
Workers’ compensation should also cover all the inpatient care required to stabilize and treat your traumatic brain injury and other injuries. This may include additional testing, surgery, medications, and other costs associated with hospitalization and treatment. Some traumatic brain injuries require extended inpatient hospital care, and costs can easily reach hundreds of thousands of dollars for severe injuries.
Most people who suffer moderate or severe traumatic brain injury require at least some inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient therapy. This type of treatment can help you rebuild strength, recover lost skills, and learn to adapt to new impairments caused by your injuries.
Inpatient rehabilitation can last a few days to several months and includes intensive programs to address how to relearn basic skills such as walking and talking. Outpatient therapies may continue for months or even years once inpatient rehabilitation is complete. Common types of therapy include:
Many traumatic brain injuries require some level of continuing care. This may be only temporary until the injured patient can recover enough to live independently or have family members play supportive roles, or they could require ongoing care for the rest of their life. There are many levels of continuing care, and workers’ compensation should pay for those reasonably related to all of them.
This includes a home attendant, skilled nursing care, placement in an assisted living facility, or other steps to ensure you receive the necessary level of care.
In addition to medical care and treatment, Workers Compensation will also compensate you for your lost wages, and give you a money award for certain injuries. If you cannot return to work, private disability insurance or Social Security Disability benefits may be an option. You may also be eligible for compensation through a civil lawsuit, holding the party responsible for your injuries liable. The law limits our ability to file suit against your employer, but it allows us to pursue compensation against responsible third parties for past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, loss of services, and economic losses not covered by Workers Compensation.
