Workers' Compensation Practice for Paralegals is a textbook and practice guide for paralegals and other legal professionals who work in the area of workers' compensation law. The book addresses practical tasks associated with the law office management of workers' compensation cases, including an overview of workers' compensation law, determining compensable claims, evaluating and accepting cases, reviewing and summarizing medical records, investigating claims, obtaining evidence, drafting pleadings and preparing for mediations and hearings. More complex tasks, such as handling catastrophic injuries and death claims, Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements, third party claims and bankrupt defendants, are also discussed. Each chapter includes practice tips to help paralegals become proficient in the practice of workers' compensation law, as well as references to find the most up-to-date information regarding various aspects of workers' compensation practice. Sample documents are included to illustrate the kinds of documents paralegals may draft in a typical private law practice. Workers' Compensation Practice for Paralegals is unique because it is written specifically for paralegals by an attorney/paralegal team with a combination of over thirty years of practice in workers' compensation law. In addition, both authors have experience teaching law students and paralegals in college settings. Recognizing that there are excellent state-specific workers' compensation reference books for workers' compensation practitioners, this book is intended to guide and train paralegal students, paralegals and other legal professionals new to the practice of workers' compensation law. Straightforward and easy to read, it provides its readers with an overview of the essential skills necessary to perform substantive work on any workers' compensation case, as well as the tools to find the information they need to make a significant contribution to a workers' compensation practice, whether it be their own state-specific rules and forms, Medicare's current WCMSA requirements or medical references."

This is not your ordinary workers' compensation book. Workers' compensation coverage is relatively easy to understand. It's the legal, procedural and contractual issues surrounding workers' compensation that are complicated. In "The Insurance Professional's Practical Guide to Workers' Compensation," Boggs addresses in clear, jargon-free English many of the concepts, policies and practices in workers compensation that brokers, risk advisors, and corporate risk managers need to know. The chapters, such as on which injuries and which workers are covered, free the reader from having to wade through dense legal and regulatory treatises. Boggs explains to non-lawyers legal aspects of workers compensation. If you need to use the book as little as one time a year, get it, because you'll probably need it much more often.
