Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – Can I Go To My Own Doctor for My Georgia Workers’ Compensation Claim?

912-208-2992 Savannah workers’ compensation attorney Ty Wilson discusses if you can I choose to go see your own doctor if you are injured on the job.  The short answer on that is it depends.  It depends a lot on what your employer has in place.  Your employer if he’s subject to the act he or she is subject to the act they are required to provide what’s called a posted panel of physicians or a list of doctors of medical providers, I’m sorry, that you can treat with if you’re injured on the job.  If they do not have this in place there is a possibility that you can see the doctors you wish to see however, it would be important that the doctors also accept patients from the workers’ compensation system.  Workers’ compensation does not pay what you or I would pay out of pocket and therefore, they pay a reduced rate and some doctors are not willing to take on the reduced rate fees provided by the fee schedule of the Workers’ Compensation Act.  It is a highly technical matter if you have any questions it’s highly recommended that you speak to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney promptly as control of your medical care is critical in a workers’ compensation claim.

  • 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.
