“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S lawyer talk, and no double talk- just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley
The First Step
When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
The Next Step
If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job. You can order a free copy and I will cover the shipping too.

California Workers Compensation: What are temporary disability benefits?
Temporary disability (TD) benefits are payments you get if you lose wages because your injury prevents you from doing your usual job while recovering.
There are two types of temporary disability benefits. If you cannot work at all while recovering, you receive temporary total disability (TTD) benefits. If you can do some work while recovering, you receive temporary partial disability benefit (TPD) payments.
Once you have a work injury you are at war with the insurance company. No matter how nice the workers compensation claims adjuster is to you - - at the end of the day, their job is to keep you from getting the medical benefits and money benefits you are entitled to under the law. You should be polite when dealing with the adjuster. However, DO NOT TAKE LEGAL ADVICE FROM THE WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE ADJUSTER! Don't be all gabby with the adjuster. Everything you say to the adjuster can and will be used against you in court.
