Nancy has more than 30 years of experience in workers comp in the Inland Empire, starting as a law clerk defending Comp Insurance Companies, watching insurance companies refuse help people seriously hurt at work. In 1994, she left defense to represent only injured workers. Nancy knows what it is to be injured and trying to work and support a family. In the Inland Empire 30 years, Nancy knows which physicians and facilities truly help injured workers (and which ones just give lip service but no help). Nancy answers questions for workers throughout the state on,, and on her website:

    YOU don't ever write me a check; the Judge orders the insurer to pay me after I help you get paid on your claim.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    Workers Comp fees are just 15%, NOT 40% like personal injury attorneys. NO FEE IS PAID UNTIL YOUR CLAIM CLOSES. [You never pay the fee directly...the insurer pays a part of your award to the attorney, per the judge's order.]

Legal Answers
281 Questions Answered
Q. When do I start getting PPD?
A: if you went to a doctor 'in bed' with the insurance adjuster, he may be writing you have ZERO rateable Whole Person Impairment from this injury. I set a trial for one just like that today...the treating physician said the worker had permanent restrictions from her injury but no rateable permanent disability. There are a lot of M.D.'s out there very willing to cheat people and write lies about them. Not every Medical Doctor is fair. If you do not pick your doctors incredibly carefully in workers comp, you can easily end up with a zero.
Q. a corrupt doctor had my supportive care ended, the lawyer and insurance co were complicit ! I have documentation please
A: The trouble with this scenario is the damage was done when this doctor was selected. There is no mechanism for a lawyer to get paid anything in this fact pattern. I read there already were hearings. This means a judge has made a ruling. A ruling has to be appealed within a few days. PLUS there has to have been a judge error in the hearing to appeal. Just having a different opinion than the judge is NOT a 'judicial error'. IF YOU HAD documentary evidence that this physician was not factual, the WCAB Judge would have made a finding on that and dismissed the physician's reports as evidence. It appears this was not done. Sadly, there is nothing more to do now but to warn others to have an attorney before selecting the QME/IME physician; once a doctor 'in bed' with an insurer writes his report, you're sort of 'married' to him. You cannot, as they say, "unring the bell".
Q. regarding FMLA.. my employer is saying I'm on the FMLA abuse list one day. because i went over the certified hours
A: There is no such animal in the Labor Code as an FMLA Abuse List. That is an internal bookkeeping tool that employer just made up. Workers us FMLA up to a certain amount, and when all those hours are used up, the employer may reprimand then terminate the worker for absenteeism. All FMLA does is protect your job while you are absent. When you are absent beyond the number of days in the statute, the boss can fire you. When an employer makes up a tool like an FMLA Abuse List, it certainly sounds like this employer is getting ready to terminate you. It sounds like this employer is no longer happy with the relationship and wants to find a reason to terminate you and is putting your absenteeism in writing. One more day off, you will likely be gone. SO: INSTEAD of waiting for this unhappy employer to fire you, it is a really smart time to go find a new job. A lot of employers are having a tough time finding good people to show up and work. This is a great time to look for a new job, while you are still employed and other employers need help.
