You are entitled to a change of doctors.  If the FCE says you have restrictions, the doctor would not have much credibility to say you have no restrictions especially since he is the doctor who requested it.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of doctors out there that will help the insurance company every chance they can.  I would be happy to speak to you in more detail.  Please call me for a FREE consultation at (877)817-4127.

Workers Compensation
Have you been injured on the job or diagnosed with an occupational illness? Most employees in most states are covered by workers' compensation insurance, which provides certain benefits in the event of an on-the-job accident or occupational disease. Workers' compensation attorneys can guide you through the process of applying for benefits or appealing a denied claim. You should also consult with a lawyer if you've been approved for workers' comp benefits but feel as if you haven't received all of the benefits you deserve, or if you've been accused of workers' compensation fraud.
