The WC judge was kind to clear the slate for you!!

You should select a new attorney based upon their experience and their reviews.

You can select an attorney from anywhere in the state as 99% of WC is done remotely now, except for trials.

Randy Bryan Ligh answered on May 19, 2022

If you were defending yourself, yes. If your job is giving you issues then you need to immediate consult with a workers' compensation attorney, or I recommend that you go ahead and do so---most in this area of practice will provide you a free consultation. Good luck.

Yes. Workers comp considers all income - having it on your W2 just makes it easier to verify.

YIKES! If your checks are 0 you've got to revisit you withholding numbers with payroll!!! The California Labor Code just state "Average Weekly Earnings AT THE TIME OF INJURY" and the judges do that BEFORE DEDUCTIONS. So you add up Wages AND Tips before taxes/deductions. Many... Read more »

Q: If i worked for company A and was injured at company B, if company A covers my workmans comp claim can i still sue B

I was not working or being paid by company A(or B) while at company B. I was injured at company B while performing an action at the behest of an employee at company B. Company A and B are affiliated.

Tim Rose
Tim Rose answered on May 11, 2022

Not likely. Company B's insurance would cover your injuries and time off from both companies. But you would most likely not be able to sue Company A.

Gregory C. Maaswinkel answered on May 5, 2022

The answer depends. Assuming UPS has a valid no drug policy in place and that UPS can prove a valid "chain of custody" of the drug test sample, then there is a rebuttable presumption of impairment that can be overcome by showing evidence that you were not impaired.
