When you file a workers’ comp claim in Tennessee, you’re presented a panel of three doctors to choose from. The doctor you choose will become your authorized treating physician — or your ATP.
In most cases when you’re injured on the job, you have a right to treatment from that ATP for the rest of your life. But quite often, that injury completely heals and you don’t need further treatment on it.
What a workers’ compensation attorney can do for you
The workers’ compensation insurance company is often willing to pay you to stop that lifetime treatment policy. And they’ll even pay you a lump sum for it. That payment can be negotiated by an attorney.
It may sound too good to be true or too complex, but it’s really not. That’s why there are attorneys like us here at Darrell Castle & Associates to help you!
