Do I get to choose my own doctor if I'm hurt at work?

In D.C. and Maryland, injured workers can choose their own doctor for their workers compensation claim. Don't let your employer or its insurance company send you to a doctor they choose - or worse, to some "clinic" (where the only "patients" are injured construction workers). In Virginia, the workers compensation insurance company will provide a panel of three physicians to choose from. In any setting, if you are hurt at work, get the medical treatment you need for your work injury.
