What Injured Workers Need to Know About This New “Reform”

This bill has drastically affected California's injured workers. However, our Workers' Compensation attorneys are fully equipped to overcome any challenges our clients may face as a result of this law.
We continue to analyze SB 863 and educate the community about it. In addition, we actively participate in its implementation to ensure that injured workers receive just and fair compensation for their injuries and timely medical treatment.
