Many times,the workers compensation carrier will attempt to direct your health care. You must avoid allowing the insurance carrier to do this. While some workers compensation insurance carriers are looking out for the best interests of their clients, many simply want to control your care, and control the physicians who provide this care. Getting to an attorney quickly, will ensure that you receive the care you deserve from the medical professionals you trust.
