Amarillo, TX asked in Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation, Health Care Law and Medical Malpractice for Texas

Q: What I need to do when I can prove Texas worker's comp Dr's are biased with their diagnosis?

As of 6/18/2018 I have not had one Dr from 3 different clinics explain to me about my 40+ work injuries and current.

Prior to work injury I was being treated for Colonoscopy with out any problem. After work injuries, the Dr's have deliberately failed to properly diagnose my injuries by

not requesting further testing or Specialists because I had a Excavator 5 ton bucket lowered on top of my head, neck, back while I was in squat position working. I was crushed unconsciously. Currently being seen by same clinic previously treating me for Colonoscopy.

Dr won't read MRI report or FCE report to me.

I have been physically assaulted by a MD, harassed, bullied by MD's to NP's and under surveillance in my Dr appts by security personnel, without my knowledge nor consent,

My Dr's have no problem discussing my injuries to Work comp insurance but won't discuss my injuries with me. Now my Dr has said it's beyond its experience to treat me.

I have factual evidence of this.

A: I'm sorry for your ordeal here, both in terms of your catastrophic injury and the treatment-related issues that followed. Your question has not been picked up for four weeks. You don't need anyone to tell you that you should speak with a workers' comp attorney on these issues; you probably already know that. Your matter appears complex and not something that lends itself to a simple answer here. Contact a workers' comp attorney to assist you here - either one you find on this site or through your own independent search. Personal Injury is included in your categories; if you included that category because of third-party claims outside those involving your employer, it isn't totally clear from the description. Good luck
