What if I Don’t Like My Workers’ Compensation Doctor?


FAQ: What if I don't like my doctor?
Answered by Mitch Rice

The following does not constitute legal advice. Every case is different and the circumstances of each determine which laws and legal strategies apply. Consultation with an attorney is necessary for a thorough evaluation of your case. Even with diligent and zealous representation, not all cases can be won. Every case is different and results are based on specific factual and legal circumstances, and similar results may not be obtained in your case. Our past performance is no guarantee of future results.

If you were seriously injured at work in or around the Kansas City area, you’ve likely already been sent to a doctor of your employer’s choice or referred to a specific doctor by the workers’ compensation carrier. When this happens, it can be difficult to feel satisfied with the medical care received, and you might continue to wonder if there is more that can or should be done?

“What I recommend is a second opinion,” said workers’ compensation attorney, Mitch Rice. “You’re entitled to a second opinion under the Workers’ Compensation Act.”

According to Rice, the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Midwest Injury Firm can refer clients to a separate doctor for an exam, which gives them the piece of mind that everything required medically has been done. This allows clients to move forward in their workers’ compensation case.
