In Kristene Thompson v. Darden Restaurants, Inc. and Gallagher Bassett Services, Inc. the slip and fall accident and a left knee injury were accepted as compensable by the E/C. The pending controversy concerned a claim for right knee evaluation and treatment. The E/C authorized a right knee evaluation eleven days after first learning of the alleged right knee injury and offered the specialist referral as recommended. However, claimant refused that offer and ultimately secured her own physician. Because the JCC found the E/C had not denied care, claimant’s request for authorization of her selected physician was DENIED.
