We have many clients who think they have no avenues to recover under the workers’ compensation system because they have not received medical treatment through a workers’ compensation provider. Many times, their boss or supervisor tells them to get treated by their personal physician instead of filing their injury under workers’ comp. They subsequently think because they have done this, they have no case – NOT TRUE.
Even if you get treated by a personal physician, you still may have a workers’ compensation claim. If an injured worker has provided notice to the employer about an injury, just because they were treated by a non-panel doctor does not mean they are barred from bringing a case. Contact us at the law offices of Benjamin Y. Gerber and we can help explain your rights to you.
