It depends. If your PA work comp lawyer files a Petition for benefits- called a Claim Petition, and if the claim is for 52 weeks or more of wage loss, then he or she will usually take the deposition of your treating physician- assuming that the physician supports the work-relatedness of your condition. Likewise, if the Employer files a Petition to terminate or reduce your benefits, your PA work comp lawyer will normally take the deposition of your treating doctor- within 90 days of the Employer’s medical deposition.
