Michigan workers comp attorney explains how you can treat with your own doctor after an injury at work.

We want you to understand that one of the most important benefits under workers comp is access to quality medical care. 

You have the right to reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your work-related injury regardless of fault.

You also have the right to choose your own doctor after twenty-eight days from your injury.

Don’t let the insurance company dictate your medical treatment

Your employer can recommend a doctor, but you have the right to choose for yourself. To do this, notify your employer or the insurance company by providing the name of the doctor and your intent to treat with this doctor for your work injury.

You should always treat with your own doctor to avoid a potential conflict of interest. If your workers comp benefits are ever disputed, you will need a doctor who will be on your side.

You also have the right to decide for yourself what medical treatment is truly needed. You cannot be forced into a specific course of medical treatment by your employer or the insurance company.
