    Default Choosing a Different Doctor

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: California

    do i need to wait 30 days to see another doctor? my attorney got me an appointment before the 30 days. His doctor put me out of work and my employer says they cannot accept that.

    His = the lawyer's? This new doctor says you can't work, but the doctor who examined you for work says you can?

    You have a lawyer, but he won't answer your questions?

    Do you have pre-designated doctor? (A doctor that you chose prior to your injury to treat you for Work Comp. injury) Your employer has 30 days control over you treatment unless if you have pre-designated doctor. They do not have to accept your release from work by different doctor. Good luck.
