Every workers’ compensation case is different and medical care can take on a variety of different forms but the Orange County workers’ compensation attorneys at Howard Law regularly help clients get the medical care they need including:
- Emergency Care – If you experience a serious or life threatening injury you have every right to get the emergency medical care you need to protect yourself. This care should be covered by your workers’ compensation benefits, if your employer or their insurer is trying to avoid paying for emergency care after an accident or injury, we can help.
- Physical Therapy – Many injuries, including orthopedic injuries regularly require physical therapy as part of the course of treatment. Workers’ comp carriers regularly try to limit physical therapy or prevent people from getting physical therapy. If you are struggling to get physical therapy visits approved by workers’ comp you may need an attorney to help you fight for the medical care you are entitled to.
- Specialists – Workers’ compensation insurers are notorious for dragging their feet and delaying approvals for visits to specialists. If your primary workers’ comp doctor is recommending that you see a specialist and the insurer is refusing to approve that appointment, having an attorney on your side my help you get approval.

The Orange County workers’ compensation attorneys at Howard Law can help you ensure that you get the diagnostic tests you need to confirm your diagnosis and form an effective treatment plan.
