Georgia Injured Workers Entitled to Select New Doctor(s)

Many work injuries result in ongoing
treatment with a physician or specialist. However, employees that have
suffered on the job injuries often become unsatisfied or frustrated with
the treatment the workers’ compensation doctor provides over time.
Under Georgia law, injured workers receiving workers’ compensation
benefits are entitled to a change in the treating physician for their
work injuries. The injured worker can choose from the employer’s list of
doctors or may even be entitled to transfer care to the doctor of his
or her choosing. In addition, employees that have suffered an on the job
injury and have received lost wage benefit checks from the insurance
company have the right to a one-time examination with his or her chosen
physician. This can help the injured worker better understand the injury
and treatment options, as well as the additional benefits he or she
should be receiving.
