The Authority’s tenth annual Workers’ Compensation Symposium was held on August 16, 2018 on the California JPIA campus for attendees that included Authority members, defense attorneys, and claims adjusters from York.
Symposium attendees heard from a panel of defense attorneys, including Giovanni Valencia from Hayford, Felchlin, Valencia & McWhorter; Cliff Weinberg from Ingber & Weinberg; and Steve Siegel from Siegel, Moreno & Stettler, who shared their experiences and advice on keeping claims moving toward resolution. Other topics presented included a legislative update, causation of injuries, and the components of successful return-to-work programs.
The Workers’ Compensation Symposium is an annual event that is designed to provide Authority members with an opportunity to hear from numerous industry experts on workers’ compensation issues and to meet with the Authority’s panel attorneys and the York claims team.
