Let Our Michigan Workers’ Comp Lawyers Help You Get The Medical Benefits You Need
Medical benefits are a crucial part of workers’ compensation. When an illness or injury on the job requires medical care, you need to know that workers’ compensation is going to cover the cost. IMPORTANT: Workers’ comp insurance companies routinely try to reduce or deny medical benefits for injured workers. That is why it is so important to put an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side as soon as possible after an injury on the job.

Helping You Get Coverage For Your Medical Expenses
Depending on your specific injury, you may require a variety of medical treatments, and your recovery could take some time. Under Michigan law, an injured worker is entitled to necessary and reasonable care through workers’ compensation for as long as it is needed. However, getting the necessary coverage and keeping it for as long as you need it may be challenging — because insurance companies try to minimize workers’ compensation benefits as much as possible.
At Steele & Ferguson, P.C., our workers’ compensation attorneys know how to build strong claims that maximize our clients’ medical benefits, as well as their wage loss benefits.
Following are several of the types of medical costs that may be covered by Michigan workers’ compensation:
- Hospital treatment, including any surgeries needed for the injury
- Emergency care
- Doctor visits
- Chiropractic treatments
- Crutches, wheelchairs and other accommodations
- Hearing apparatuses for work-related hearing injuries
- Nursing care
- Dental services for work-related injuries
IMPORTANT: It is crucial that you do not stop medical care prematurely. If you do, the insurance company may stop your coverage and claim that you are no longer injured. Insurance companies regularly use gaps in treatment as grounds for denying continued medical benefits. If you have questions about these matters, our attorneys can help. You can also see our overview of denied workers’ comp claims to learn more.
