I don’t want to have the surgery recommended for my work injury.

“Refusing medical treatment” is another pitfall in a workers’ compensation case.  This does not occur very often but it may occur when a doctor is recommending surgery and the injured worker really does not want to have surgery.  There are ways to get around this type of situation and it would be best to speak to a lawyer about how to best strategize so that you cannot be labeled as refusing medical treatment which would cause your checks and medical treatment to be cut off.
