Choosing a doctor for your workers' comp claim.

Georgia employers who are subject to the Workers' Compensation Act are required to maintain a list of work comp doctors called a panel of physicians. The panel is required to list six doctors in order to be valid. If you have a workers' compensation claim and your employer has a valid panel of physicians, you are generally required to treat with a doctor from the panel. If the panel is not posted or is invalid, you can choose your own doctor. Choosing the correct doctor for your workers' compensation claim is extremely important. If you have questions about choosing a workers' compensation doctor for your claim, call Atlanta work comp attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404)924-4595. You can also visit our website at
