Biography

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 Avvo.com, LawGuru.com, and on her website: www.imhurt.info.

Fees

  • Contingent Fees
    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
308 Questions Answered
Q. I need immediate help with very severe Numbing and Tingling. I have a lawyer whom want answer calls. Need Neck Surgery.
A: It depends. iS this case open such that this employer is paying for your treatment still? Have you selected a specialist or hospital from the Medical Provider Network, an MPN Doctor or Urgent Care or Hospital?? Then you should go to the MPN Hospital or Urgent Care. If you use your Medicare Care Card and say it is work related MOST places will decline treatment because Medicare is not for work-related injuries. If you closed your comp case before you left and gave MSA Money to Center For Medicare Service (CMS), then yes just use the Medicare care and get the treatment you need in the Acute Urgent Care or the ER.
Q. Can HR advise my boss about my potential workman’s comp case before I have opened a claim or spoken to me
A: Conversations with HR can (and should) eventually include your supervisor. If you are having mental health challenges and you alerted Human Resources, HR is required by the corporation to alert supervisors (and likely Risk Management). Human Resources staffers are NOT Priests or Doctors or Lawyers. HR should not broadcast medical conditions offered in privacy to the general population, but they don't have to keep notifications about mental health challenges a secret from the boss either.
Q. Can I reopen a work comp case after a compromise and release settlement?
A: No. a Compromise & Release Agreement is like a divorce. You and the insurer are all done. If you'd challenged it within 20 days of the Judge's Order Approving Compromise & Release Agreement 2 years ago, you had a shot. But not now.
