If you have recently suffered a work-related injury, you need to know your rights to workers’ compensation. Understand that workers’ compensation can be far more than a monthly stipend or replacement for lost wages. You are likely also entitled to medical expense benefits to help you receive healthcare to aid your recovery. Medical treatment is very costly, but being awarded medical expense benefits will save your financial future.
