Can I choose my own doctor to treat my work injury under Kentucky workers compensation law?

The answer under Kentucky workers compensation law is "yes" and almost always you can designate your own doctor to treat you for your work injury.  There can be very limited exceptions to this general rule.  Your employer can require you to be examined by a doctor of their choosing under some circumstances also.
