The Importance Of Seeing The Right Doctor After A Work Injury
Proper medical care is essential to a complete recovery from a workplace injury or illness. If you are injured on the job, you want to be sure that the treatment you receive is going to actually help you with your current condition. If you are being forced to return to work before you are completely healthy, you might develop a more serious health issue that results in long-lasting complications.
At Rusty Savoie Attorney at Law, LLC, I help injured workers find the medical care they need to truly recover from their injuries. I have extensive experience protecting the rights of injured workers in Louisiana. As your attorney, I will work tirelessly to ensure that you are able to find the right doctor and treatment plan for your situation.
You Can See Your Own Doctor
Many injured workers are told that they must visit a physician who has been hand-selected by the insurance company. These doctors often are likely to try to get the injured worker back on the job as soon as possible. You need to know that the workers’ compensation system provides you with specific protections related to medical care, including:
- The right to see a doctor or specialist of your choosing
- The right to be reimbursed for the expenses connected to the care you receive
- The right to receive workers’ compensation benefits while you are out of work
As your lawyer, I can help you with all of the issues that you are facing at this time. I can recommend physicians who understand the extent of the injuries that you have suffered. I will help you file the claims for compensation that will enable you to obtain benefits while you are recovering from your condition.
I take pride in helping injured workers. I know that this is an extremely difficult time for you, and as your attorney, I will fight hard to help you find the treatment you need to recover from your injuries and ensure that you and your family understand every step in the process.
