Do I have to be treated by a company doctor?
In most cases, an injured worker is free to choose his or her own doctor. Usually, after an injured worker has been treated by a physician two to three times, that physician is considered to be the employee’s treating physician and a motion must be filed to change the treating physician. However, you are entitled to a second opinion and/or a change of physician. Contact Minneapolis workers’ compensation attorney Thomas Atkinson from Atkinson Gerber Law Office to ensure you get the doctor of your choice rather than an advocate working on behalf of the insurance company.
