Can I choose my own doctor?

Workers' Compensation benefits are provided when you see an authorized treating physician chosen by the employer or the employer's insurance carrier.  You will likely be responsible for bearing any costs incurred if you seek treatment on your own. Seeking treatment that has not been authorized can have other serious negative consequences - call us if you have any questions concerning this matter for a no cost no obligation consultation.

Additionally, it is important to note that you must attend all scheduled appointments with your authorized treating physician because failure to do so may result in termination of your benefits.
