Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyer Comp is refusing to pay for my treatment

Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyer Comp is refusing to pay for my treatment: If you have suffered a serious job injury, there will probably come a time when your treating doctor is requesting some form of treatment (MRI, surgery, etc.), but the workers compensation insurance carrier refuses to pay for your treatment. If this has happened to you, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced Huntsville Workers Compensation lawyer.

In Alabama, the law is clear, the comp carrier must pay for all reasonably necessary medical treatment. Generally, when comp refuses to authorize medical treatment, they do so based on the opinion of a doctor they hire to review some of your medical records. This process is called utilization review. However, while the workers compensation insurance carrier may be able to find a doctor who will say what they want to hear, judges don't see it that way. The court will generally rule that the doctor who is actually giving you hands on treatment is in the best position to decide what treatment you need (I personally do not know of a single instance where a judge has ruled in the insurance carrier's favor in these instances).

If you work in Huntsville, Alabama (or anywhere in the Madison County area*), you have suffered a job injury and the medical treatment recommended by your treating doctor has been denied, don't hesitate to contact the experienced Huntsville Workers Compensation lawyers at POWELL AND DENNY with your questions about your rights under the Alabama Workers Compensation laws.
