My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Texas. My employer based my "bona fide offer" off of my Designated Doctors restrictions and not my Treating Doctor whom I've been seeing for the past 9 months. The Designated Doctor only saw me once which was 3 months ago. My "treating doctor" has every restriction box checked along with taking prescribed medications. The "designated doctor" only listed a limit on how much weight I can lift and nothing more. I was "ordered" to go back to work. Now my condition has been severely aggrivated by having to go back to work under his lack of restrictions. How can a "designated doctor" have more merit than a doctor who has been treating me all along?
