Choosing the right doctor for a workers' comp claim.

The relationship between an injured worker and a doctor is of paramount importance in a workers' compensation claim. Injured workers do not have complete control over which doctor treats them for a work injury. In Georgia, if the employer has a vaild panel of physicians the injured individual has to select a doctor from that panel of physicians. If the panel is not valid, then the injured worker can select any doctor who will see workers' comp patients. In either case, the choice of doctors can have an enormous impact on the treatment you receive. If you would like to discuss choosing the correct doctor for your work related injury contact Atlanta attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835, or visit
