Asked in Workers' Compensation for Texas

Q: The case worker/nurse called and is asking to go with me to my next dr appt. Am I abligated to let her go?

I had a knee wore out from competitive use in my line of work but was feeling no pain and was working. Then I slipped and twisted the knee and after that knee started buckling. I climb for a living so reported injury and told them no longer felt safe climbing. My wife has health insurance for us both so our insurance pd for knee replacement. Dr had already said one day it would need replacing but it was fine until I slipped and twisted knee. Would you consider representing me?
