Example text

If you did not designate a treating physician in advance, you cannot pick your own doctor until a certain period of time has passed after your injury. For most workers, this time period is 30 days. Pay attention to this time period, and choose your own doctor as soon as you legally can. ) 15 If your employer has established a medical provider network, you cannot go to a doctor outside the network (unless you predesignated your doctor). You can request a second and third opinion within the network and, if you’re still not satisfied, submit an “independent medical review application” to the administrative director asking to be sent to another doctor outside of the network.

Self-Inflicted Injuries An injury that is intentionally self-inflicted is not covered by workers’ compensation. ) Example: Jorge gets angry at Cathy, his supervisor. Because Jorge knows that Cathy is criticized by her superiors whenever an employee files a workers’ compensation claim, he intentionally slams his fist into a wall, injuring his hand. He is not entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation. However, self-inflicted injuries can be covered where the employee’s action is deemed to be an “irresistible impulse,” meaning that the action could not be helped.

5. Injuries Resulting From a Prior Condition If you’re injured at work as a result of a preexisting or underlying condition, you may still have a workers’ compensation claim. ) But to be covered, there must be something new about the injury. It can’t just be a recurrence or one-time flare-up of the old injury. To qualify for workers’ compensation, the injury must be either: • an aggravation (worsening) of an underlying condition, whether work-related or not, or • a new injury that developed as a result of a prior industrial injury.
