Utah workers comp covers the cost of your medical bills after a work-related accident. However, if your condition gets worse, you may be entitled to additional benefits. There are several things that you need to know if your condition gets worse.
If you need additional care for your work injuries, make sure that the medical provider bills the workers compensation insurance carrier for the treatment. The medical provider must bill, or you must submit to, the workers compensation insurance carrier within one year of the treatment date. Otherwise, your claim for payment of the medical bill will too late.
If you are unable to work because of your work injury you are entitled to be paid workers compensation wages at the workers compensation pay rate. If the workers compensation insurance carrier is not paying you for these benefits you will need to apply for these benefits with the Utah Labor Commission.
If you need to apply for these benefits with the Utah Labor Commission you need to contact a workers comp attorney at Mountain View Law Group in Ogden, Utah to make sure that you meet any applicable deadlines.
