Workers' Compensation Law provides an in-depth look at the day-to-day practice of this field in addition to addressing theoretical aspects that form a critical foundation for this branch of law. It explains activities from drafting petitions, presenting cases to an administrative law judge, and bringing an appeal. Workers’ Compensation Law profiles professionals who are intimately involved in a workers compensation case including attorneys, paralegals, administrative law judges, chiropractors, medical doctors, and more. It balances theory and practice, provides ethical discussions, and explores the use of private investigators and various discovery devices in order to examine claims. Content throughout is reinforced with excerpted cases, brief interviews, a variety of exhibits, and practical real-life examples.
