Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – My Doctor Has Ordered Back Surgery, I Seem To Be Getting the Run Around?

After receiving the request for surgery, I can not get the workers’ compensation insurance adjuster on the phone, and she will not return my calls.  It has been several weeks.  Just today, I have been scheduled for a independent medical evaluation with a doctor I have never heard of, can they do that?

The workers’ compensation insurance company can and often do seek out defense medical evaluations when they do not like the opinion the authorized treating physician has provided.  They know if they delay long enough you will either find another way outside of workers’ compensation to get your care for your back, or you will hire an attorney or you will attempt to file a hearing and handle you own case (NOT RECOMMENDED).  The insurance company knows that by obtaining the new doctor’s opinion they will have evidence to contradict that you need back surgery, when they do it will make it much harder for a Judge to decide in your favor.

You should reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney immediately.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
