    Default Can You Go to Worker's Comp Doctors in Other States

    I am seeking an attorney to start my workers comp claim as myy employer does not want to use workers comp. However, I am also preparing to move to a different state too. My question, Can I use doctors in the state I am moving to, or do I have to use doctors in sc where the injury occurred?

    Also, Does anyone know how workers comp applies if an old injury was aggravated as a result of the new injury. I suffered a broken leg and damaged hip in a car wreck a number of years age and with the recent fall at work onto that same side, I now find that there is increased pain and soreness coming from the old injury area.

    WC will not care about your old injury. They will try their best to make your current injury as small as possible. Do not trust a word WC tells you either. They will use everything you say against you. Moving is not the best idea until you get this settled or at least started with a good attorney. I thought I would not need one, I was dead wrong. What ever you do, do not talk to WC. Get that attorney, why, they will stall you out until that 90 days is up and send you a notice which says denied.
