California Workers' Compensation Law, Seventh Edition
"Although California Workers' Compensation Law has been a standard reference text for decades, it escalated to a much higher level when Robert Rassp became Editor-in-Chief of the Seventh Edition. Mr. Rassp and his team of highly respected contributing writers completely re-wrote this two-volume treatise to increase its utility as the place to begin any legal research on California workers' compensation. Their in-depth understanding of workers' compensation and relentless pursuit of more insight into the nuances of this complex body of law have produced a "must have" treatise for any attorney or physician involved in the treatment of injured workers or in the resolution of their workers' compensation claims."
Carlyle R. Brakensiek, Executive Vice President, California Society of Industrial Medicine and Surgery
