What If I Don’t Agree With My Medical Treatment For A Work Injury?
If you and your doctor do not see eye to eye on your treatment for a work-related injury, you have the right to see a doctor of your choosing or to receive a second opinion.
However, keep in mind that workers’ compensation may not cover future medical bills if you fail to follow the rules when changing doctors. In addition, your personal health insurance may refuse to pay for a work-related injury. For these reasons, it’s important to get legal advice before you do anything.
At Torrisi & Torrisi, P.C., our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to:
- Explain how to seek a second opinion
- Explain your options in changing doctors
If we are representing you, we can also talk to your doctor on your behalf, appeal denied claims, and help you obtain the medical care and other benefits you need and deserve for a work injury.
