Biography

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.

A: if you have a california work comp case and your out of state: 1. ask adjuster if the MPN extends to your state. 2. assuming it does not, ask adjuster if they will send an authorization letter to your doctor (assuming your doctor will treat you if they get an authoirzaton letter- ask the doctor first) 3. assuming adjuster wont provide such a letter, but your doctor will treat if he /she has such a letter, request a court date and the judge will order carrier to authorize the evaluation, not treatment, but an evaluation. 4. assuming your doctor wont agree to bill CA work comp no matter what, either find a dr who will or treat privatlely (private insurance or medicare and tell them its for CA work comp so they can send a bill to the work comp carrier.
Q. Hi. What kind of Care Team do I Need in Place if this "Spinal Cord Injury" become close to become Paraplegic or Quadri?
A: the answer depends on the level of funcional losses you are suffering from. work comp may be required to provide any special needs you have so long as your treating doctor documents the need and that the need relates to your work injury at least in part. things such as personal help at home with laundry, cooking, bathing, etc, help getting around the community to assist you with shopping, banking, etc, special modification to your home such as support bars in your shower, around the toilet, etc and wheelchairs as well as assistive walking devices are all on the table so long as your doctor says you need such and that it is reasonably medically necessary. if you are permanently totally disabled your attorney needs to fight for that level of disablity before you cash out (C&R) your case. and if you have preexisting conditions / injuries that contribute to you being 100% perm total disablity then your attorney must advise you of filing for SIBTF benefits.
