Unpaid Medical Expenses

Get the Medical Care You Need

Following a work-related injury, you are entitled to receive medical care, including doctors' visits, surgery, dental care, hospital stays, pharmacy needs, physical therapy and testing. If your employer does not authorize, provide or pay for this medical care, an experienced attorney may be able to help you obtain the medical care you need.

At Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, P.L.C., we have more than 60 years of combined experience helping clients in Des Moines and throughout the state of Iowa obtain the necessary medical care following a work-related injury. To discuss your case with one of our knowledgeable lawyers, contact our Des Moines unpaid medical expenses attorneys online.

We Can Help You With Unpaid Medical Expenses

If you have been denied medical coverage or your employer has not paid past medical expenses, our law firm can help you. Our first step is to contact the employer or its insurance company and negotiate proper medical care. If bills are unpaid, we will bring that to their attention, too.

Sometimes the employer or its insurance company refuses to authorize care. If the case has been accepted, our attorneys will file a petition for alternate medical care and ask the workers' compensation commissioner to order proper care.

If the case has been denied, we will file a petition with the commissioner, seeking medical benefits, temporary weekly benefits and permanent partial disability benefits. If the employer or its insurer has improperly withheld, delayed or cut off benefits, we will seek penalty benefits.
