If I Am Injured On The Job Can I Choose The Doctor Who Treats Me?

The state basically permits the injured worker to use any doctor or surgeon. If the claimant received medical care from a physician of his own selection, in addition to filing the reports with the workers` compensation commission as required by law, the claimant or his duly authorized representative shall immediately upon receipt forward all reports and bills to the carrier, self­insured, state accident fund, or the uninsured employers` fund.
