Most injuries that occur at work are covered by workers' compensation insurance. Regardless of who is at fault, you generally are entitled to receive benefits for your workplace accident. The exceptions include self-inflicted injuries and injuries caused while the worker is engaged in illegal activity, including illegal drug use or being intoxicated on the job in most cases.
In most cases, you must initially choose one of the physicians selected by your employer. However, 90 days after your workplace accident, you can normally seek medical treatment with any doctor of your choice. This issue can give rise to a dispute, because many employers want the right to choose your doctor. Stand up for your rights. Contact O'Malley & Langan. We can help.
