The doctor or medical provider will have to file a lien and the lien is generally paid for by the workers' compensation carrier.
Denial of medical treatment is extremely common in California workers compensation. However, if you or a family member has been seriously injured in a California work injury - -not having your medical bills paid can be extremely frustrating and worrisome.
California has some of the lowest and most unfair workers' compensation benefits in America. Because of this, you need to have your case reviewed to see if you have a viable third party work injury case.
A third-party work injury case is civil lawsuit where someone other than your employer is legally responsible for your injuries.
The First Step
When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
The Next Step

My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job.
