Will my employer’s workers’ compensation insurance pay for treatment if I go to my own personal doctor?

Medical treatment pursuant to the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act is free to the injured worker; however the treatment must be approved and authorized by the workers’ compensation carrier and treatment must be with the authorized treating physician. Medical benefits are a very valuable and important right for an injured worker under Alabama’s Workers’ Compensation Act. Contact the attorneys at the Nomberg Law Firm if you have any questions about your medical benefits. (205) 930-6900.
