Medical Treatment for Work Related Injuries

Workers compensation insurance in Minnesota covers the costs of reasonable and necessary medical care for people who get hurt at work, including:

  • Surgery
  • Physical Therapy
  • Chiropractic Care
  • Doctor’s Visits
  • Hospital Stays
  • Medical Equipment
  • Mental Health Services
  • Medication
  • Nursing Services
  • Mileage Reimbursement

Suffering an on-the-job injury means lost time at work and less money in your paycheck right when you need it to cover the cost of your medical bills.

At Fields Law Firm, our Minnesota workers compensation lawyers believe you shouldn’t have to pay for treatment you need because you got hurt doing your job. Call us at 1-888-343-5375 or use our free online form to get in touch with our team of experienced attorneys and find out how to get the medical care you deserve.

Seeing the Doctor

In Minnesota, you usually have the right to choose the doctor who will treat you for your work injury. However, if your employer participates in a certified managed care plan, in most cases you must receive treatment from a doctor or clinic that is part of the plan’s network. The Department of Labor and Industry maintains a list of managed certified care plans in Minnesota.

When seeing a healthcare provider, it’s important to tell them you’re seeking treatment for a work-related injury. This will help them know what paperwork to fill out and where to send it to ensure your treatment is properly documented. You should keep track of any out-of-pocket expenses you incur, such as mileage and prescriptions, because you may be able to recover them later.

Regardless of where you seek treatment, your employer’s insurance company has the right to schedule you for an independent medical examination (IME) with a doctor of their choosing. If the doctor determines you don’t need further medical care, the insurance company will stop paying for your treatment.

Paying Your Medical Bills

When you’re hurt and can’t work, you have enough to worry about without the added stress of medical bills piling up. Workers compensation is supposed to pay for your treatment, but insurance companies don’t always play fair.

Our Minnesota Law Firm is dedicated to helping injured workers across the state get the medical care they deserve. If you have questions about paying your medical bills, or just need someone to listen and answer your questions, call us. You can count on us to be there when you need us most.

SETTLEMENTS AND RECOVERIES IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON SPECIFIC FACTUAL AND LEGAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CLIENT’S CASE. PAST CASE RESULTS ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH THE FIELDS LAW FIRM AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

My experience with Merrick Williams of Fields Law Firm has been truly above and beyond satisfactory. His knowledge and professionalism have guided me through a very difficult time. He and his assistant Angela were readily available to answer any questions and address my concerns. I highly recommend him as an attorney and will use his services again if necessary in the future.read more

Field Law Firm was great my lawyer Zach Schmoll was more than I could ask for. He always kept me in the loop and explain everything perfectly, got back to me whenever I called less than 24 hrs and was a extremely nice guy. This guy is young and knows what he is doing so please don’t let the age fool you. I had a wonderful experience with Field Law and will refer anyone with legal matters to them.read more

Fields Law Firm is simply the very best when it comes to representing you & fighting for your rights! They are a "10 Star" Law Firm hands down! Michael Kemmmitt & Sarah Christensen were simply outstanding to work with. They took over my long term disability case after I was being denied my benefits & gave me the moral support & law experience that I needed to win my case. They were supportive throughout my case & they will fight tooth & nail to assure your rights are not being denied. It is so rare to find a law firm that treats you like YOU are the most important person to them. I HIGHLY recommend Fields Law Firm. They are truly advocates for justice.read more
