Biography

I have a strong interest in medicine and the law. Workers compensation law is a natural fit for me and I am blessed to be able to work with both doctors and lawyers every day. My interest in medicine definitely provides me an edge, a greater understanding, of my clients injuries and how the long term effects of a work injury can dramatically impact the ability to work and earn a living. in my practice of work comp law I am routinely questing doctors about their diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plans. This is very challenging yet very rewarding and it certainly results in consistently better and more just settlements for our clients.

Q. Can I sue Sedgwick Claims if they have ignored a referral to see an Orthopedic Surgeon for reevaluation.
A: 8 years! your attorney needs to answer these questions for you. if you dont have an attorney, i see why your getting nowhere. we cant answer your question about Sedgwick's "requirement" to use the UR process without more info. work comp is very complex, as you well know. however an experienced attorney knows how to direct YOUR case, assert YOUR rights and move the case FAST. if you dont have an attorney, my advice is get one TODAY.
Q. I've been evaluated by QME twice and he keeps recommending treatment that has been denied twice.
A: you may have to see the PQME a third time. your missing the big picture. you need a good treating doctor and forget the PQME. if you have no attorney, get one. it costs nothing up front or out of pocket and the fees are 15% of the settlement. if you have no attorney, your enemy the insurance company is calling the shots and your going down without a fight. you dont know how the game is played.
Q. Hi. My Left Shoulder, Shoulder Blade, Bicep, Radiate Downward to My Wrists, Hand, Palm and Various Fingers Every Nite.
A: if you have a california work comp case and your out of state: 1. ask adjuster if the MPN extends to your state. 2. assuming it does not, ask adjuster if they will send an authorization letter to your doctor (assuming your doctor will treat you if they get an authoirzaton letter- ask the doctor first) 3. assuming adjuster wont provide such a letter, but your doctor will treat if he /she has such a letter, request a court date and the judge will order carrier to authorize the evaluation, not treatment, but an evaluation. 4. assuming your doctor wont agree to bill CA work comp no matter what, either find a dr who will or treat privatlely (private insurance or medicare and tell them its for CA work comp so they can send a bill to the work comp carrier.
