Medical & Like Services Disputes

Have a dispute with WorkCover over your entitlement to medical and like services? The injury compensation lawyers at Fortitude Legal in Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong can help.

The WorkCover scheme provides that a worker is entitled to the reasonable cost of medical and like services. The definition of those services is broad.

From time to time your WorkCover insurer may seek to interfere with those rights and either reject certain types of treatment, restrict or terminate your entitlement to certain treatment.

It is important for you to know that many determinations of a WorkCover insurer can be challenged.  You should obtain prompt advice about the determination you have received, your chances of successfully challenging that determination and what that would involve.

The scheme surrounding workers compensation and your entitlements is complex and there are strict time limits that apply.  It is important that you get appropriate legal advice from the outset to ensure that your rights are protected.

We can help you navigate the scheme, maximise your entitlements and make the decisions that are right for your future.
