Attorney For Reporting Injuries To Doctors In Los Angeles
Reporting an injury to the doctor promptly is recommended for anyone who has been injured. A prompt medical examination can provide direction for maximal healing. This is especially important if you expect to be able to file any kind of claim for compensation — such as a personal injury lawsuit or a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. In the case of a workplace accident, it is also important to report the injury to your employer first. If you do not report the injury to your employer, it may become impossible for you to file a claim for compensation. RIGHT PROCEDURE MAY NOT TAKE PATIENT’S INTERESTS FIRST
Timeliness In Seeing A Doctor Is Important — And Some Insurers Prescribe Which Doctor You Should See
The choice of a doctor may require approval of your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company. Some workers’ comp insurers insist that injured workers see doctors selected by the insurers. Many insurers have lists of approved health care providers that claimants can choose from.
