Under Massachusetts workers’ compensation law in most cases, you don’t have to go to a particular doctor or a company doctor.Do I have to see the company doctor?There are some situations where unions will make agreements that you see their doctor first, but that’s the exception to the rule. If you have questions, you should speak to a workers’ compensation attorney who handles workers’ comp in Massachusetts, to get the answers to those questions.
