There are rules regarding who you can treat with in Georgia workers compensation claims. For example, if your employer has what is known as a valid posted panel of physicians ( a list of doctors that meets all the legal requirements under Georgia law), then you maybe required to go to one of the doctors listed on the panel.
If however, the employer does not have a valid posted panel of physicians or does not have a panel at all, you may be entitled to go to the doctor of your choice. There are many rules associated with the posted panel of physicians or list of doctors so it is always recommended to speak with a Savannah workers’ compensation attorney.
