Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose any doctor for an on-the-job injury?

Yes and no. If your employer has provided a list of physicians from which to choose, you must select one for your initial treatment. If this physician subjects you to invasive surgery, you may seek a second opinion from someone of your own choosing.
