Legal Answers
  • Q. Received lifetime medical for back injury went to doctor 6months after receiving award and doctors office said my case
    A: You have a lifetime medical award for your injury. However, a doctor must say you “need” medical treatment for your injury. You should review the last medical report from the doctor to see if you were released. If you disagree, then you need to see another doctor to see what that doctor says. This does get complicated since the doctor who was treating you for your injury has the status of being the “treating doctor” for your injury. But if he refuses to see you and has not said your are recovered and need no treatment then you have a right to demand a new “treating doctor” from the insurance company. If they refuse to provide a panel of three doctors, then file a claim for a new doctor with the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission. That phone number is 1-877-664-2566. You also need to contact a Virginia Workers Compensation Attorney.
