Workers’ compensation is supposed to provide for your medical expenses and reimburse lost wages after a job-related injury. Sometimes that happens, but many Californians are denied the benefits they’ve earned, deserve, and desperately need.
For more than two decades, the Fresno work injury attorneys at the Fresno-based firm of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian have defended the rights of accident victims, obtaining the benefits and justice victims deserve. If you’re injured at work in Fresno, Madera, Tulare, Kingsburg, or Hanford counties, get the help you’re going to need; call the Fresno work injury attorneys of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian immediately.
ENSURING THE BEST TREATMENT
Written reports from your doctors are typically the most important element in the determination of your benefits. Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian can ensure that you receive the best medical attention. Based on the medical treatment utilization schedule (MTUS) used by the California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), your employer and claim administrators will conduct a mandatory utilization review (UR) to decide if your treatment is genuinely needed. The MTUS describes treatments that are considered effective, their length, and their frequency. Your doctor must provide findings that coincide with the MTUS. Our Fresno work injury attorneys can ensure that the treatment described in the UR is proper and adequate. Especially if your injury involves chronic pain, post-surgical therapy, a rare condition, or if the effectiveness of your treatment plan cannot be predicted, it’s vital to have your rights fully protected during the UR. Call us as early as possible after you suffer a workplace injury.
