Oregon Workers’ Compensation Denial of Medical Services
We recently helped a workers’ compensation client receive needed medical services which had been wrongly denied by her employer. In Jeld-Wen v. Cooper, the Oregon Court of Appeals agreed that the Workers’ Compensation Board correctly said that the employer’s denial of medical services was an invalid denial of future treatment, because our client, the injured worker, had not submitted a bill for medical treatment and had not actually required medical services. The employer unlawfully attempted to close the worker’s claim and deny her future care. The Court agreed with the Board that the employer acted wrongly and reinstated Ms. Cooper’s right to treatment. If you have received a denial of medical services or need other assistance with your Oregon workers’ compensation claim, please contact the law office of Philip H. Garrow at 541-382-3736.
