Question:

Can employers tell you who to treat with?

Answer:

I got a call the other day from a gentleman who was in a union and was injured at work. His question was, “Do I have to see a company doctor?” Under Massachusetts workers’ compensation law, you don’t have to go to any particular doctor.Independent Medical ExaminationThere are some situations with unions where they’ll make an agreement as part of the union contract that you will see a company doctor first and then you can go to a doctor of your choosing. If you have a question about that situation, contact a workers’ compensation attorney and discuss it with them.
