We Can Help You See Doctors Who Understand Your Conditions
When you report your injury to your employer, often times they send you to their company clinic for treatment. These clinics may be US Healthworks or Concentra Medical Center. Even though they may not admit this to you, these doctors are often on the side of the insurance company. Depending on the doctor you see, you may be told to go back to work sooner than you are able. This may happen because the doctor is more interested in pleasing the insurance company than providing you with good medical care.
There are some doctors who are better for workers than others. We know which doctors are not on the side of the insurance companies. You need a doctor who is experienced with writing workers’ compensation reports and who can explain your problems in such a way to convince the judge what your true disability is.
We refer clients to appropriate doctors. Because our firm has been serving the Los Angeles area for more than 50 years, we know the workers’ compensation medical networks and physicians.
