Network Doctors

Hi, my name’s Kim Wyatt. I’m the managing attorney of Bailey & Galyen’s Workers’ Comp department. The first thing you need to find when you look for a doctor is, are they in network or out of network. The insurance companies for a few years now, have gone to network type doctors. If your doctor is not in network they can not treat you. The rules are very strict with which doctors you can see, if it’s a network provider. We could assist you in finding a network provider, but it’s very important initially that you find out if your company subscribes to a network or non network insurance policy.

Repetitive Injuries

Hi, my name is Kim Wyatt. I’m the managing attorney of Bailey & Galyen’s Workers’ Comp Department.

When you suffer a repetitive injury at work, you need to be very careful what the date of injury is. By rule, the date of injury is the date YOU realize that your injury is work-related, NOT when symptoms started. Be very careful when the carrier tries to get a recorded statement, and the first question they ask is, when did you experience these symptoms? It might have been six months ago, but you didn’t realize it was work related until the light bulb when on, and a doctor or you met with a physician that indicated, what do you do at work that might have caused this injury? That is your date of injury, not the date of the first initial symptoms.
