Many employers utilize the same doctors for worker’s compensation cases. We oftentimes see this in smaller towns. Company doctors will have relationships with employers and may fall victim to the employer’s pressure to return the employee to work prematurely. In a worker’s compensation case, this places the injured worker in a difficult position. As a general rule, the employer has the right to pick the doctor, and the employee has to listen to the doctor selected. If you have been returned to work prematurely, you may have the right to a second opinion. This depends upon the facts of your case.
