Do I Have To See The Company Doctor?
After an injured employee reports a work injury to the employer, the employer and the workers’ compensation insurer may try to control who the employee sees for medical treatment, dictate the treatment and restrictions, and force an employee back to work too soon. This can ultimately lead to the workers’ compensation claim being denied before it even begins.
Insurance adjusters want you to think they are looking out for you interests. Unfortunately, this is frequently not the case. Insurance adjusters handle many cases and frequently make errors due to ignorance or inattention. Some will even purposely mislead and misinform you about the status of your case and about what benefits you are entitled to.
The more information you possess as to how the system works, the better off you will be. You should never allow the workers’ compensation insurer to control your case. You need to understand and stand up for your rights.
