Can I Choose My Own Doctor For A Work Injury?
If you have been injured at work, it is important to have people on your side looking out for your best interests. This is true of your choice of attorney as well as your choice of doctor as you make a recovery from your work-related injury.
In the aftermath of a work injury, it is common for injured workers to receive misleading information about their rights. This often comes from employers and their workers’ compensation insurance company. You have likely been told that you have to see a doctor that your boss or the insurance company approves of. This is simply not true.
What Are Your Rights?
Regardless of what your employer or the insurance company may have told you, there is no requirement for you to stay in the health care network of their choice. Unless the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission says otherwise, you have the right to choose your own doctor. Your medical treatment is a vital part of your healing process after a work injury, and you deserve to have a doctor you trust helping you through your recovery.
At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., our attorneys will make sure you understand all of your rights and responsibilities, and handle the interactions with the insurance company so you can focus on getting back on your feet.
