Disagreements over medical issues are common in workers’ compensation claims. They can begin the first time you see the doctor for a workplace injury. Often, when the doctor calls the workers’ comp insurance company to authorize treatment, the insurance representative either refuses to return the call or refuses to authorize treatment of your medical problem.Legal Help for Injured Workers

If you have been injured at work and are struggling to receive proper treatment of your workplace injury, please contact an attorney at the law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C. Our founder has more than 20 years of experience in workman’s comp law. We know how to help you get the medical treatment you need.
We can help you resolve all types of workers’ compensation-related medical issues, including those involving failure to authorize treatment recommendations, including:
- Tests, such as MRIs
- Referrals to specialists
- Chiropractic care
Often these types of problems can be resolved by changing doctors. Injured workers have the right to change their treating physician once. However, both physicians must be included on the list of approved physicians posted by the employer. If you require a subsequent change of doctors, we can file a petition to change doctors with the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation on your behalf.
