    You are only entitled to a second opinion with a doctor of your choosing if you have received WC benefits within 120 days. You are entitled to a change of doctor.

  • I have a workers comp hearing set up for August. Now the workers comp defense lawyer wants a deposition early July.

    Why would they order a deposition.
