Medical Issues

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.

A New Doctor can Make all the Difference

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.
