Should I contact my Missouri Workers' Compensation lawyer if the company doctor says I need surgery, but also wants me to get a second opinion?
Your employer cannot demand that you get a second opinion before approving your surgery. This is sometimes the result of an attempt to have you eventually seen by a doctor who disagrees with the need for surgery. This would then eliminate your employer's responsibility to pay for it. Your Missouri Workers' Comp benefits are available to pay for any surgery or other treatment plan a doctor advises.
Your lawyer can evaluate the facts of your case to determine if your rights to Missouri Workers' Comp benefits are being violated.
If you have any other questions pertaining to your Missouri Workers' Comp benefits or if you need clarification on any aspect of your claim, you should speak with a lawyer.
A Missouri Workers' Compensation lawyer will ensure your legal rights are protected and fight for you in the effort to secure your full compensation after a serious work injury.
