I have a strong interest in medicine and the law. Workers compensation law is a natural fit for me and I am blessed to be able to work with both doctors and lawyers every day. My interest in medicine definitely provides me an edge, a greater understanding, of my clients injuries and how the long term effects of a work injury can dramatically impact the ability to work and earn a living. in my practice of work comp law I am routinely questing doctors about their diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plans. This is very challenging yet very rewarding and it certainly results in consistently better and more just settlements for our clients.

Q. My overall body % is 6. I had the tip of ring finger amputated what compensation am looking at.
A: I could give you a number but the insurance company will never offer you what they would offer an attorney. you can say all the right words that i tell you to say and still they wont offer you what they would offer an attorney. the reason being the mere fact you are not a lawyer and how do you back up your words with action? you cant. you dont know how and they know that. they also assume if your not willing to hire a lawyer, your not wiling to stand up for yourself. hiring a lawyer sends a clear message that you want ALL the benefits the law allows and you are willing to have a professional help you to fight to get it. consult an experienced workers compensation attorney.
Q. I am hiring a contractor for a building project to build a deck. Am I liable for any of his workers if they get injured
A: your homeowners policy could be liable for work comp if the contractor is unlicensed and doing work for which a license is required at the time of an injury to any of the employees. you need to check with his carrier directly and not rely on him to tell you. he can get a policy certificate then cancel the policy to get his payment back but only show you the certificate. you cant be too careful. if his insurance lapses at any time, he is automatically an unlicensed contractor (even if he has a valid licence on CSLB site) for work comp purposes and your homeowners pays if/ when he does not. i am the attorney suing the homeowner policy all the time for last 30 years.
Q. Can I have a lawyer go after my Workers Comp insurance for not returning e-mails or phone calls regarding my case.
A: never allow a claims person to choose your doctor. you should hire an attorney to take medical control of your case for you and get your case on track. it costs you nothing to hire an attorney out of your pocket.
