Second Opinion Authorized for Workers' Comp

While the worker’s compensation insurance company can certainly deny/refuse to pay for a second opinion, that doesn’t mean you are not entitled to one.  

We often have client’s who would like a second opinion, and if the insurance company won’t authorize it, we go to court and get a court order authorizing the second opinion/evaluation and compelling the insurance company to pay for the same.

Angelo Simone and Shelagh McCahey’s dream was a law firm truly built upon a core value of excellence, without compromise. This law firm is the result of that dream. It is also the result of many long conversations about what is truly best for the client, what actually drives truly excellent results, and why many lawyers—even those who have done quite well for themselves—simply don’t hit the target.
