How Can I Seek An Alternative Medical Specialist Or Doctor?
When you file a workers’ compensation claim, your employer’s insurer will provide a list of doctors who can oversee your medical treatment. If their doctor refers you to a specialist, you must also select a specialist on their pre-approved list. You do not have control over which doctor you see and this may lead to a dissatisfaction with service.
Workers’ compensation law allows for you to switch doctors one time. Once you decide to switch doctors you cannot switch back. The quality of your care is important to us. If you are struggling to obtain the treatment you need after sustaining an injury on the job, consult one of our lawyers.
