Can I see my own doctor if I've been injured on the job? Hello, my name is Ty Willson and I'm a Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorney. Pricing on the state of Georgia. And our topic for today or our question for today is, “Can you see your own doctor if you managed on the job?” And the short answer is, maybe.
Not always. It depends on, “Does your employer have what is called a “Posted Panel of Physicians'' or a list of doctors that you can treat with, if you're injured on the job?” Then the next question is, “Does that “Posted Panel of Physicians” or list of doctors meet the legal requirements to be what is called a legally valid posted panel of physicians?
This can get pretty detail oriented pretty quickly. So in order to best serve you, it's always recommended that if your employer has a posted panel of physicians, you snap a Photo of it with your phone and then speak with the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorney. They'll be able to take a look at that panel, give you an estimate if they believe it's a valid panel or if it's not.
And if there isn't one, another reason to speak with the Georgia Workers Compensation Attorney with “What is the next step if there is not a valid panel?” Hope that information has been helpful. We look forward to seeing you in the next video.
