Do I get to choose my doctor under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA)?

Video Transcription:

Yes, in Longshore, you do get to select your choice of physician. The insurance carrier will most likely request that you execute a choice of physician form. So it’s important that you speak with an attorney or understand that once you select that physician, you are stuck with them unless that doctor refers you to a different specialty or different type of doctor.
