Who Provides and Directs the Medical Treatment of the Employee?

If the employer or its insurance company has accepted the employee’s claim and is paying for medical expenses, then the employer or the insurance company generally provides and directs medical treatment in North Carolina. The Industrial Commission may allow an employee to change physicians or may approve a physician of the employee’s desire when proper grounds are shown. In all cases, be sure to follow your doctor’s orders. For example, if home exercises are prescribed, then you should do them. If medicine is prescribed, then you should take it. If additional pain or other symptoms occur with either home exercises or the prescribed medication, let your doctor’s office know at once.

As a client , I must say their firm is the most caring and knowledgeable of any I know. They are prompt with answering questions. They treat you how you want to be treated. They effectively helped me in the most critical stages of my appeals in 2 different areas. I had 2 different attorneys that were experts in the areas of law to best help serve me. Their assistants gave me fast and efficient service as well. The attorneys were available to speak to whenever necessary. They are just great people! Quality is the best word to describe the staff!! I would recommend to all who need help.
