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.
