Workers’ Compensation insurance companies will rarely agree to cover future medical treatment for your work injuries.
They want to close out the possibility of having to pay more money.
However, you may be able to use the request for future medical payments to drive up settlement value.
For instance, the insurance company may not agree to a blanket clause to leave open medical 5 years down the road. But it may agree to pay you an additional $10,000 toward future medical.
You have to think creatively.
This may result in some additional settlement dollars for you now.
