The workers’ compensation law is supposed to be simple, but that does not mean an injured worker will be compensated fairly. Therefore, it is a good idea in most cases to seek out an attorney that can represent you as the injured employee. This is particularly true in any case where any kind of surgery has taken place and the surgeon or treating physician gives an opinion concerning a disability rating. Often, the doctor having performed the surgery will find that the employee is fully recovered after the surgery or is only minimally impaired. The truth is the treating doctor is being asked to judge his or her own work to a certain extent, and therefore it is only natural that the treating doctor might give a rosier picture then is perhaps warranted.
That is why your Kansas City Work Comp Lawyer or attorney will insist on you going to a doctor that is not a treating doctor that will give an independent medical evaluation of your injury and your body as a whole. An independent doctor, not being requested to judge his or her own work, will be in a better position to give a fair and accurate disability rating. Further, an independent doctor will be able to recommend any necessary ongoing medical treatment. If you have any questions about the work comp process or your work related injury in Kansas City, MO, then call Rocky at 816-353-0009.
