This month’s California Applicants’ Attorneys Association Workers’
Compensation Newsletter presented a number of important subjects, ranging
from news topics, events, informative pieces, and more. The newsletter
opens with a piece titled Senator Steven Bradford: Aiming At the Racist
Heart of Appointment, in which he highlights the racist undertones of
the apportionment regime in California’s Workers’ Compensation system.
Hypertension, which affects nearly 35% of African Americans, is also the
cause of 20% of deaths for this demographic as well. Section 1 of SB 617
states, “Notwithstanding any other law, including, but not limited
to, Section 4663, heredity and genetics shall be excluded as bases of
causation for purposes of determining the apportionment of permanent disability.”
Senator Bradford seeks to fight against this injustice, and our firm supports
him in the fullest.
The newsletter also highlights that the 2018 Winter Convention registration
is now open, and also provides readers the opportunity to register for
a Sacramento Chapter presentation. Taking place on October 4th, the presentation is titled “How to Sport Personal Injury Issues
in a Work Injury Case.”
Finally, the newsletter provides a letter from the CAAA, asking readers
to take an online survey. Completely confidential and analyzed by an independent
outside communications firm, the survey merely takes 5 minutes to complete.
