Do injured workers get second opinions?

Injured workers can request a second opinion with a physician of their choice, at the insurance company’s expense, when determining whether the treating physician’s assigned disability rating is fair. However, it is more complicated when requesting a second opinion for diagnoses, treatment options, and work restrictions. The insurance companies still hold some control in those situations.
