Because there was a petition for reconsideration filed by defendants, the case is stayed until the WCAB make a decision. Most likely the case will not be taken off calendar, but the WCJ will not do anything more than take the case off calendar at the hearing. Best approach is to write the court...Read more »
At my job we don't have "seasonal" but "part time recurring" instead. These employees are not considered regular, how long are until they become regular? Some of these employees work more days than the regular employees as well. Additionally, some have been with the company for years and are... Read more »
Yes, the carrier will be required to pay for medical treatment for any psyche or stress related to your injury, but it will be intensely litigated and will not increase the overall permanent disability in your case if the date of injury is post 2013. Just have your treating physician make a...Read more »
I parted ways with my department after almost 18 years and now work as a civilian. Recently saw my primary care for severe hand/arm pain/loss of feeling. He is familiar with what I used to do and I've not had to type at length for some time. New job is typing 95% of the time, so assuming this is... Read more »
I disagree with the other other attorney on a few issues. In other words, you are in a bad place. If you file a claim there is no chance that your current employer will not be a part of the litigation. Even if the new job is not the predominant cause of your injury, you will need to address...Read more »
Unless you have two different injuries, then there will be no PD paid after 2007 because there is a 104 week limit on TD. After April 19, 2004 you can receive 108 weeks of TD from the date of injury. From 2008 you can receive 104 weeks of TD within five years of the date of injury.
Is it better to subpoena the defense witnesses or have the defense call them to come testify?
I was terminated after I was injured on the job. I’m going to trial because the insurance carrier is disputing I was fired for caused. They have listed the two HR rep that terminated me after I... Read more »
Unless you have listed the defendant's witnesses and they can somehow help your case, I wonder why you even want to have defendant's witnesses come to a trial. Everything the defendants want to present at trial should be listed on the pre-trial conference statement. If the report is not listed...Read more »
I've been deemed permanent and stationary and reached maximum medical improvement so why would I need future Medical? I don't want treatment I don't need treatment I would like to get the funds released somehow through petition or other legal means.
You need to review the permanent and stationary report for it will outline exactly what future medical treatment is needed or expected. It is rare that a physician deems that an injured worker is not in need of some type of future medical treatment. However, often the suggested future medical...Read more »

clarification of what? You say the deceased was your partner, but that may not qualify you for benefits. Hopefully your partner left something in writing saying that you are an heir. Otherwise, you may be forced to litigate the issue. Be advised that if there are no dependents entitled to...Read more »
I have a trial set on the matter of ttd. The carrier is disputing that I was terminated for cause. If they were firm on their stance and feel they do not owe a dime, why did they list the attorney lien? There was sdi lien and medical lien but the defense attorney did not list them in their forms.... Read more »
It is required. There is a section on the Pre-Trial Conference statement to address payments by EDD. If there were payments by EDD, then the statement should contain the start date, finish date, and pay rate. The Trial Judge may or may not include the issue at trial depending upon other...Read more »
You will never succeed by calling the WCJ a liar. You are setting yourself up for a hard fall. The only time there is a record of what the WCJ says is when there is a court reporter transcribing what occurs in the courtroom. Otherwise, the only record is the minutes of hearing, which you probably...Read more »
It is too late to proceed with a discrimination claim before the WCAB, However, you can still file a claim for WC benefits. The civil statute is longer, so you should be able to proceed with a claim in the civil courts.
My paychecks are short , missing or different pay rate. Also i was promise a bouns ... i now have no work beside i believe i asked about my bouns. Hr and their scheduling are no help, they just sent me in circles.
Unfortunately this is not a workers comp question. I tried to find a way to flag the questions, but there were no options. You need to post in employment law. There is no remedy in workers comp. for what you have described.
How can I remove the judge? He is bias and has purposely rule opposite of what I asked. In the expedited hearing, he refused to look at my dr report and he wanted to see exact wordings with start dates and end dates before he can award ttd. He completely ignored ttd at the msc and set my case for... Read more »
My workers comp claim was denied entirely a few weeks after my injury. I’ve seen 2 ptp and 2 qme, all of them has said industrial related and the most recent one says arose during the course of employment.
My claims has been accepted for medical and all doctors reports with ttd dates. The... Read more »
this question cannot be reasonably answered without someone seeing the medical reports. While the reports find injury, if they are based upon an incorrect or wrong history they are not substantial evidence and therefore worthless. In sum, your question cannot be answered.

The people who file child support liens almost never file the corresponding paperwork to withdraw their liens, so the WCAB will need documentation from you to assure the court that the lien is paid. Its just another hassle in the WCAB scheme of things.
