Frequently Asked Questions

My workers compensation doctor says I can return to work, but I can’t do the job. What can I do?

One of the most important rights of an injured worker in Georgia is the right to an independent medical examination. Ongoing medical treatment must be done through an “authorized treating physician”, what is commonly called a company doctor. However, the injured worker can demand a one-time independent medical examination by any doctor of his/her choosing. The employer/insurer must pay for the examination and any tests the examining physician orders, within certain limits.

This right is especially helpful when the company doctor has released a worker to return to work before he/she is fully recovered, or when the company doctor refuses to give a fair permanent disability rating.

A qualified and experienced workers compensation attorney will know when to use an independent medical examination to protect your benefits and maximize your settlement. Morgan & Morgan has over 30 years experience helping injured workers get the benefits they deserve. Call us today.
