Biography

I was born and raised in Southern Calif with my beautiful Latino family (6 brothers & 2 sisters & parents) that taught me to love, respect and make the best of it, even with beans and tortillas at times. My migrant parents came from Texas in 1953 who later became a Gardener and a Professional House Keeper for the rich and beautiful Jewish families. They taught me and my brothers to love and respect our country. After obtaining High Honors at Indio High School, I attended UCLA and then went to Law School at Univ of West Los Ángeles School of Law in Los Ángeles while I was working full time for insurance legal claims and law firms. After passing the bar exam and working for several years in Los Angeles, I opened up my office in 2002 in Indio, Calif. Today we have four offices in S. Calif.

Q. What is good settlement for a back injury requiring a double level fusion in Ca. Been off work almost 2 years
A: Based on my 35 years of experience working as a Workers Comp attorney for 25 years and also working as an Insurance Claims Adjuster and Insurance Legal Hearing Rep for 10 years prior to being an attorney, I va tell you that you are getting a “bad settlement” offer! If you call any experienced workers comp attorney, they should be able to look at other issues that are highly important to your claim. Depending on the med reports, you many want to keep your case open before closing it. The only person that is benefited on such a large case like yours is the insurance carrier. Our firm has settled many similar cases far higher than what you are being offered. You may also need to see another med specialist for other secondary med issues such as HBP, Heart, Internal issues, Gastrointestinal, Urological, Psychological etc. You need to have a competent workers comp lawyer review all your med reports and file before you make that life changing decision. We have offices in Pomona, Riverside & Indio so we see a lot of injured people before they make that important decision. It’s to your benefit to wait and get wise and competent counsel on this very important matter. I wish you the best!

Sincerely,

D. Castillo

Q. do I have to release all medical records for the past 10 years for a tennis elbow injury? I work in warehouse?
A: You can limit the information that the insurance carrier obtains and restrict any and all psychological treatment or med care. This also is an opportunity to reflect and review all prior injuries that may have occurred at your job. Unfortunately most insurance companies will look for any reason to Deny your claim. That is why they are looking at your last medical records instead of asking you about your current complaints. I suggest you seek legal counsel and speak to a competent workers compensation attorney to review all your legal options. Unfortunately, many employers will look for ways to terminate you after you’ve reported a work related claim or injury. Protect yourself and speak to an Experienced Workers Compensation Attorney.

Sincerely,

Castillo & Associates

Q. can I Withdraw my signature from the settlement if it hasn’t gone through ?
A: Look for a competent workers comp attorney right away. Insurance adjusters will always offer you the lowest amount possible. Plus it’s very possible that the judge will not approve it for that reason.
