If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to medical treatment that is paid for by your employer. If your employer does not send you to a doctor within three days of reporting your injury, you have a right to seek medical treatment on your own. You may need the assistance of an experienced Norman workers' compensation attorney to obtain the fair benefits you are entitled to receive.

An injured worker is entitled to have 100% of all medical bills related to the injury paid by the employer. That includes emergency room services, hospital care, doctor fees, medication, medical supplies, and travel to and from medical care. Your employer has the right to choose the doctor you go to initially for your injuries, unless they fail to do so within 3 days of receiving notice of the injury, in which case you can see anyone you please until the employer selects a doctor.
If you are not satisfied with the doctor your employer selects, you are permitted under law to file a motion with the court for a change of physician. If employer and employee cannot agree on a new doctor, the court will select one. You do not need prior authorization to obtain emergency medical treatment.
Under workers' compensation law, any worker who has sustained an injury arising out of the worker's course of employment has a potential workers' compensation claim. The injury can result from a single, sudden event or from repetitive trauma. Our firm is dedicated to protecting the rights of injured workers. Our seasoned Norman workers' compensation lawyers can assist you with all aspects of your claim.
