"This book is incredibly well researched, comprehensive and organized. It is easy to follow and very readable. It would be an excellent resource for any attorney handling workers’ compensation claims, whether they represent employees or employers. I particularly liked the section on Concurrent Laws, covering Social Security disability, ERISA related plans, Medicare, Medicaid and state employee benefits, since this was an excellent review of areas of the law that workers compensation attorneys need to know, but may not be as familiar with on a day-to-day basis."—Bruce Hamilton, Partner, Teague Campbell, Raleigh, NC
