- Apportionment of permanent partial disability in accidental injuries

Actually, it is in your head
An injury or disability involves more than just physical aspects. Psychosocial factors such as pain perception, coping ability, and catastrophic thinking can increase a company’s disability claims. Clinical psychologist Calvin J. Langmade explains how addressing these psychosocial factors can improve outcomes, return to work times, and recovery.
Learn helpful methods for responding to ethical conundrums from a panel featuring applicant and defense attorneys as well as the State Bar’s very own “Mr. Ethics,” Tim Pierce. In addition, explore the ethical implications of information from social media and personal fitness trackers that finds its way into worker’s comp cases.
