Is the company doctor working in your best interest?

Medical treatment is one of your rights under the Georgia Workers' Compensation Act. Many of the doctors involved in the workers' compensation system are sent a great deal of repeat business by employers and insurance companies. Therefore, many people believe that the company doctor (or the panel doctor) places the interests of the employer and insurance company ahead of the interests of the injured worker. The majority of doctors involved in the Georgia workers' compensation system do their best to provide excellent care for injured workers. However, you may not necessarily like your authorized treating physician or he/she may not be a good fit for your particular injuries. If you feel your workers' comp doctor is not providing you adequate care, you can explore a change of physician or one time independent medical evaluation. If you would like to discuss either of these options with an experienced Atlanta attorney, contact Brian Sumrall or visit our website at
