Are you allowed to get a second opinion from a doctor of your choice in your Georgia workers' compensation claim?

Posted by Andrew M. O'Connell | Jun 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

Yes.  If you are are receiving weekly checks from the insurance company, or you have received weekly checks within the past 120 days, your are entitled to a second opinion with a doctor of your choice.  Furthermore, the insurance company will prepay up to $1,200.00 for the second opinion.  However, you will want to choose your physician wisely, as the claims adjuster may suggest you use a pro-employer physician for your second opinion.  Please contact the O'Connell Law Firm to discuss your options for a second opinion.
