Our attorney aggressively litigates injury claims through all aspects of workers' compensation defense. We represent employers, third party claims administrators and their insurance companies.
I have several years of experience in defending all types of injuries through every stage of litigation. Our attorney has extensive experience dealing with all types of issues including but not limited to AOE/COE disputes, nature and extent of injury, MPN issues, and medical treatment disputes.
Claims that are filed subsequent to the proper and good faith
termination of an employee by the employer are among the most frustrating
claims for clients because they are often filed in retaliation against
legitimate personnel action. The laws
are often interpreted to apply various exceptions to the rule barring claims
filed after termination, especially when the claimed injury is a cumulative
trauma injury. Our attorney has a
comprehensive understanding of post-termination claims and we really know how
to deal with these exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
Courts have interpreted Insurance Code Section 1063.1(c) to allow CIGA to avoid assuming responsibility where there is any other solvent insurance available. Cases
dealing with CIGA can be extremely frustrating for insurance carriers and
involve very complex issues. Our
attorney has experience litigating complex general-special employer, successive injuries involving the same or similar body parts (as in Weitzman), and continuous trauma versus specific injury cases. Our attorney has been
successful at Trial even after Reconsideration against CIGA resulting in
avoidance of all liability, and successful defense up to The Court of Appeal of the State of California, Second Appellate District.
Mr. Shabrami has defended complex cases involving
Legionnaire’s disease, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, insidious/genetic orthopedic
and psychiatric conditions which claimants allege to be caused by their
employment. He will go the extra step to educate himself in these types
of matters so that he can level the playing field. Success in these cases
often depends on asking the right questions from the applicant and the medical
experts from the beginning.
