One of the most important things an attorney can do for you is to get you to a doctor that is going to protect your interests by writing a fair report and getting you the treatment you deserve. Of all the recent changes in Workers Compensation, the most radical is the exercise of Medical Control. If an Employer has a Medical Practitioner Network (MPN), the employer may be able to dictate who you treat with at first. More likely than not, it will be a conservative doctor looking out for the interests of the Insurance Company. To avoid this, predesignate a doctor within the MPN. If you're not sure how to predesignate a doctor or who to select, you can contact The Law Office of Veronica Perez for more information. It is important to choose the right doctor for your injury, as the doctor controls virtually all aspects of your case such as medical care, temporary disability, and permanent disability. A conservative doctor means conservative care, returning you to work prematurely (allowing the Insurance Company to avoid paying you temporary disability while you heal) and ultimately releasing you back to work with no permanent disability. PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS! Don't get washed out by the system. Contact the Law Office of Veronica Perez NOW!
