Choosing the Right Doctor After Sustaining a Work-Related Injury
Selecting a good doctor is perhaps the most important decision you will make during your workers’ compensation case. In some cases, you may not have much of a say as to who evaluates and treats your work-related injuries or illnesses. However, when possible, it is essential to your well-being that you thoughtfully select a doctor, rather than going with the one recommended by your employer’s insurance provider.
The doctor you select will make important decisions regarding your diagnosis and treatments, and they will likely have to submit written reports or provide testimony to your employer’s insurance provider that will determine how much workers’ compensation you will be able to receive and for how long. They will also have the final say in when you can get back to work.
If you feel you are not receiving the quality of care you deserve or you are having issues with your treating doctor, it is imperative that you seek help and consult with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible.
