Frequently Asked Questions

Workers' comp questions that we are regularly asked by our clients.

This is usually not a good idea in a workers' comp case. You have a right to medical treatment in workers comp. But in most cases you are required to pick a doctor from your employer's "panel of physicians". If you go "off the panel" then the insurance company may refuse to pay for treatment. The panel must be posted in a prominet location at your work place. The employer must provide the list as soon as you become injured. Typically, the panel must contain the names of at least 6 doctors, including one orthopedic doctor. The panel may contain no more than two "industrial clinics." If your employer does not have a panel of physicians or the panel of physicians is invalid, you should consult a lawyer. If the employer does not follow the law, then they are not allowed to limit your choice of doctors. You may be entitled to choose any doctor you want, including your family doctor.
Workers Compensation coverage begins the first day of the job. Employers with three or more employees are required to have workers compensation insurance.
There is never an upfront cost to hire us in your workers' comp case. We only charge you money if we recover benefits for you. Our fee is 25 percent of the benefits recovered.
