It seems that all too often we never really consider the importance of a cause until it has affected us in a negative manner. Such examples might include Christopher Reeve, who suffered spine damage after a fall from a horse. Reeve wound up being paralyzed from the neck down and this eventually led to his death. However, after being paralyzed Reeve went on to champion the cause of spinal injury research and even threw his hat into the ring for stem cell research, which does show some promise at regenerating damaged tissue and organs.
It is important for you to know that in order to qualify for State disability in California you must indeed be certified by a doctor to be disabled, whether partially or fully. You must be seen by the treating physician every six weeks and the doctor will likely have to keep extending your disability with updated forms until your condition is satisfied. I cannot stress enough the importance of checking your lawyer out. Do not just grab the first lawyer that comes your way. I am getting ready to hire a new lawyer because of my lawyer’s mistakes and inactions which have led to my current situation. I hope this will be helpful to you or someone you know that may have been recently injured, or are going through the California Workman’s Comp ordeal.
