Medical treatment and Georgia workers' compensation claims.

If you are injured on the job in Georgia, you have a certain degree of control over who treats you for your work injury. Your employer is required to maintain a list of workers' compensation physicians, and you are allowed to choose a doctor from that list. Sometimes, workers' compensation claimants are dissatisfied with their physician, or they do not feel that their physician is adequately treating their injury. In such cases, you can request a change in your workers' compensation treating physician. If you have any questions about your medical treatment with respect to your Georgia workers' compensation claim, call Atlanta work injury attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
