Question

My employer sent me to a doctor. He does not seem to be helping me and we do not get along. Can I do anything?
Answer

The law requires your employer to provide all "reasonable and appropriate" medical care to cure and relieve your injuries. If they are not doing this you can access the preliminary hearing process described in the previous answer. If you can prove your case at the preliminary hearing, the Judge can Order your employer to provide a list of two (2) different doctors from which you can choose to obtain your treatment.

You also have the right to what is called "unauthorized medical." You have the right to spend $500.00 with a doctor or chiropractor of your choice. If there is a dispute over medical treatment, this benefit can be used to obtain a medical opinion that would provide expert answers to such questions as diagnosis, causation, treatment recommendations and whether a person is able to work, and if so under what if any temporary restrictions.
