Are driving expenses included in workers' compensation benefits?

When employees are injured in accidents, they often receive workers' compensation benefits. These benefits not only include medical expenses but also expenses that are part of treatment for the injury.

For example, if the employee must drive to the doctor to receive treatment, then the employee can include the driving expenses as part of his or her workers' compensation benefits. 

Provisions like these for workers' compensation, however, are often limited by state law and company policy. If you or anyone you know has questions about workers' compensation benefits, contact the Des Moines workers' compensation lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
