Future Medical Care

Serious work injuries can have long-term effects. Addressing long-term medical needs means that securing compensation for future medical expenses is essential — and that effective legal representation is essential to helping you recover the compensation you deserve.

If you were hurt while working in California and it seems that your injury will have a long term impact on you physically, emotionally and financially, the experienced attorneys at Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., can help you pursue your Workers' Compensation claim. We work hard to secure compensation for future medical care, eliminating the need to cover out-of-pocket expenses that should be an employer's responsibility in the first place.

Developing a Complete Picture of Your Medical Needs

When you come to us, our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the nature of your injury and will help calculate the anticipated costs of future medical treatment. We take multiple factors into consideration including consultations, therapies, medications, surgeries, evaluations and treatments.

Injury litigation is a complex area of law. We will also assess how your condition may worsen over time and, if it does, how medical care should be adjusted or accelerated accordingly. You can be confident in our ability to handle every phase of your claim with thorough preparation and expert analysis.

When you schedule a free initial consultation, we will discuss and explain the various factors which help calculate your expected compensation, including:

  • Lifetime expectancy;
  • Settlements reached by stipulation of award, leaving medical care open; and
  • Settlement by compromise and release which allocates a cash value to future care.
