REST IN PEACE - David DePaolo of Work Comp Central
David DePaolo passed away in a motorcycle accident on Sunday.

David was great contributor towards improvements in Worker Compensation especially in California.
His blog, his website, and his ideas were all directed at making the system better for all those that participated.
I periodically visited his site to keep current on events and ideas. He was always a great source of information and a positive attitude.

you can review his blog here

as a lifelong cyclist he was killed while riding what he affectionately called his "sewing machine":

"Footer/signature" used in all my posts:
........Each state has their own comp system. We need to know which state the claim was filed in to provide accurate information.........
David was such a positive influence in the workers compensation community, and his Comp Laude awards show his creativity, leadership and how he wanted to highlight and encourage positive behavior. Every year his award ceremony grew. I hope WorkcompCentral will continue with what he wanted to accomplish.

He was also an advocate for injured workers. He cared about the plight of those who did not have a voice.

I am extremely saddened by this and will miss him. He was a special person and very kind. I will say a prayer for his family and I know he is with God right now.
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.
A terrible loss for the industry on all sides. His memory will prevail, and his work will not be ignored.
As an injured worker I can say that David's blog has been a learning experience, such a sad loss to be taken so young.
may Gods grace surround his family and friends
