P&S with restrictions but no disability rating. What?
#21
Thanks 1171. I got the info. I don't have a TV so wasn't aware J+M are commercially televised. Yuck.
I just realized that I received SDI from my employer for three days before workers comp kicked in. I wonder if that means I do have a case open with them. I will call HR tomorrow and find out. Fingers crossed!! Just finished my medical mileage reimbursement forms. Making headway. Really really appreciate you.

as I posted earlier you want to check out caaa.org
it's the best resource for attys that specialize in calif workers comp
it's your choice.
and don't be afraid to switch if it's not what you want.

I requested the PQME panel with a chiropractic specialty and contacted a lawyer with Boxer and Gerson. My primary doctor just sent me for x-rays since my back seems to be getting worse and now I'm using a walker. Will call soon for results. Also still waiting to hear from SDI.

There are no guarentees on compatibility or success but a comp specialist is less of a risk in "screwing" up your case then a "friend of a friend's" personal injury atty recommendation or one from an afternoon TV ad .
This board does try to alert posters to obvious missteps when they're making decisions about their claim.
Hope it works out for you.

From what I understand, Julius Young is an Atty with Boxer and Gerson so I believe I am taking your advice. Is this not correct?

all of the caaa.org attys are specialists. Mr Young is a long-practicing atty with the established boxer firm. I can't predict which atty will handle your claim.
work comp is a volume business so don't expect a lot of personal attention. everyday matters are generally handled by para-legals.
if you are going to take the step to litigate and fees are standard throughout the profession, why not accept representation from a certified specialist with lots of experience?
yes, that would be my advice to anyone looking for an atty.

I do not know how good he is, I am just going by what I have read from his blog. He is a work comp specialist. You can also go on the link I provided a few pages back (same as 1171 recomended) that has a search engine you can look up attorney's near you who are work comp specialists. It is good to meet/ talk to more than one, but this is up to you. I also think it is good to google their names with "reviews" to see what past clients have written. Good luck.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.

I missed the call from the specialist I contacted but will call him again on Monday.
In the meantime I'm wondering about my Supplemental Job Displacement Voucher. On one page from the insurance carrier it's says I don't qualify for the voucher because I didn't have any permanent disability but I received one for $6000. There is also mention of a Return to Work Supplement which needs to be applied for within a year. However when I try to look that information up it says I need an ADJ number. When I try to look that up it says I don't have one. Can someone help me decipher this?
Thanks

More information here
http://www.dir.ca.gov/RTWSP/RTWSP.html
The I&A officer can give you an adjudication number.
You have to open a litigation file with the comp court to receive the claim adjudication case number.
You may want to talk to your atty first before filing with the comp court.
