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

Initially, you must see the medical doctor of your companies choosing. You have the right to choose your own doctor, chiropractor or other practitioner of the healing arts 90 days after seeing a company doctor for the first time. You must notify your employer within five days of changing to your own doctor to ensure payment. If your company does not have a group of doctors in place then you may be able to see your own doctor from the start of treatment.
