SC Workers Comp Lawyers
When you are injured at work, it is the insurance company’s responsibility to provide you with medical care and recovery treatment to eliminate any side effects associated with the injury.
This treatment will be provided by “authorized treating physicians,” which sometimes causes problems because they are not chosen by the patient. Instead, the insurance company paying for the treatment chooses the doctor.

The truth is that the majority of those physicians have relationships with the insurance companies, but no relationship with the patient at all, which only hurts the patient.
Sometimes, insurance claims analysts will convince the doctor to release the injured employee from their rehabilitation program prematurely or to give a healthy assessment of the worker’s current state.

How to Proceed After a Work Injury
Report the Injury:
When you are hurt on the job , it is critical that you report the injury to your employer as soon as possible, but no longer than 90 days after the accident.
Seek Medical Attention:
Your employer should direct you to a physician who will evaluate the extent of your injuries. If your employer does not schedule an appointment for medical treatment, you should immediately obtain medical treatment and an evaluation of your condition from a medical doctor so that you begin documenting the extent and severity of your injury.
