Many people do not know they can choose their own doctor to treat their workplace injury.
One very important fact for you to know is that you can choose your own Doctor immediately after you are injured on the job. A lot of times, employers work with various medical firms whose only interest is to throw you back into the workforce before you’re ready to go back to work. In fact, there are cases where people have been grievously injured over a long period of time because they keep getting thrown back into the workforce before they’re physically ready to go back to their jobs. You may pick your own doctor for workers compensation and Attorney Judd L. Peskin would strongly advise that you start with your primary care physician if you have one. If you do not have a primary care physician, contact an attorney who will be able to recommend a physician who understands the nuances and requirements of the workers comp law and can help you get better and stay at work while getting better. It is important that you don’t injure yourself again once you are able to go back to work.
