When pursuing a workers' compensation claim, one of your primary concerns must be seeing a doctor. You need an accurate assessment of your injury and proper treatment for that injury.
The Missouri workers' compensation process allows employers to choose the doctors who assess and treat work injuries.
This concept is sometimes referred to as the "company doctor." Unfortunately, employers and insurers sometimes take advantage of this provision and provide less expensive, second-rate medical care to injured employees.
You don't have to accept second-rate treatment. You have the right to get a second opinion. You have the right to challenge the findings of the company doctor. With our experienced workers' compensation lawyers in St. Louis on your side, you will get the high-quality medical care that you deserve.
