Choose a Doctor Who Has Experience with Work-Related Injury Claims
When you’ve been hurt on the job in Texas, you have a right to seek compensation for any losses, such as wages and income or medical expenses. Though the Texas workers’ compensation system may seem straightforward, there can be a lot of variance in the benefits you receive. One of the best ways to ensure that you get all the care and compensation you need? Choose the right medical professional to treat you.
When you have been hurt at work, you’ll need to report your injury to your employer in a timely manner. When you do, your employer will likely require that you be examined by a doctor they have chosen. That doesn’t mean, though, that you can only be treated by that doctor. Ultimately, you have the right to select your own treating physician. The one that you choose can make a big difference in the type of care you receive, as well as the compensation you get for your injuries.
That’s because your doctor will normally dictate how your injury will be treated. Your doctor will know when you are ready to return to work (if at all), and will know when trying to return to work will be detrimental to your health. The work comp insurance provider won’t prescribe any care—your doctor will. An experienced physician will:
- Know what you need to make maximum medical improvement
- Know how to work with the work comp insurance company to have that care paid for
