Do I have to use the company doctor?
We frequently get contacted by injured workers telling us that their company wants to send them to the company’s doctor.
The answer is generally no. The injured employee has the right to select their physician. We normally recommend that you go to your family doctor because your family doctor knows your medical condition the best.
If your injury requires emergency treatment, the situation is different. Following the trip to the emergency room, your care is usually handled by a specialist. However, remember you have the right for a second opinion which we always reccomend be your family doctor.
We at Alvine Weidenaar have been representing injured employees very successfully over the years. Your initial consultation is always free.
