It is your body, right? In a job injury in Georgia you may have little choice about control of your medical care. The law calls it a panel of doctors. If your employer posts one, your obligation is to attend. You get to choose, but it is like choosing different doses of poison. There are ways to get past this glass ceiling. Go to my website at www.burdineandbrown.com for more details.
If your doctor, whom you did not pick, feels you are fit to return to work, you have an obligation to do so. Legally, you have 15 days to try the job but you must genuinely try. Then if your doctor takes you back out of work, your weekly benefits restart. This should be an automatic process.
