Many workers injured at work in Texas go through extensive physical therapy.  What happens when a patient is treating for a workers compensation injury and suffers another injury going through therapy?

In a Texas Workers’ Compensation claim, the injury is not limited to the conditions affected at the time of the injury.  But, includes any conditions naturally arising out of the compensable injury.  This includes medical treatment for the compensable injury which causes damage to the physical structure of the body.

If you are injured during physical therapy, or while receiving medical treatment for your compensable injury, your insurance carrier is liable for the treatment to relieve the effects of the injury.  Additionally, if this portion of your injury creates a permanent impairment, make sure it is included in your impairment rating.

If you have any questions about your workers compensation claim, contact the Dallas office of the Morris Law Firm at (214)357-1782 or via email at info@themorrisfirm.net.
