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

An injured worker has the right to the initial choice of doctor. You may not change doctors except with the approval of the Commission. An injured worker does not need to get approval to go to a different doctor for emergency treatment or if the worker or the doctor moves or if the doctor is unable to continue treating the worker.
