In order to obtain workers’ compensation, you will need to work with a doctor who can both verify your injury and create a treatment plan that gets you back on your feet as soon as possible. In Missouri, your company has the right to choose this doctor for you. In Illinois, you may be able to choose your doctor for yourself. However, there are several rules and regulations, even within this seemingly simple step, that can complicate your claim and interfere with your compensation.
In the short video below, workers’ comp lawyer, Dan Brown, discusses these differences and why you may want to call our office before filing your claim to let us help protect you from common mistakes.
