At Brand Peters LLP, our founding attorney Jonathan M. Brand has been serving the Bay Area since 1989. After earning his J.D. (law degree) from John F. Kennedy Law School, he had the intention of strictly pursuing personal injury law; however, not long after he founded Brand Peters LLP, he decided to expand his practice so he could also represent injured workers in their workers' compensation cases. Since the firm's inception, he has successfully handled thousands of workers' comp and personal injury cases on behalf of his injured clients, and he has obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements over his years in practice.
Attorney Brand is not only well-liked and well-respected in the legal and chiropractic communities, he recently authored an article in the July 2013 edition of Plaintiff, the magazine for Northern California plaintiffs' attorneys. His article is entitled, "Making workers' comp work for you and your client," and it explains the "new rules of workers' comp and how WC intersects with personal injury law." This scholarly article reaches its target audience of plaintiff attorneys all throughout Northern California, and is intended to help them identify the various ways of making the workers' compensation system work for them as much as possible when personal injury and workers' compensation "cross-over."
Attorney Brand explains how the reality is that in many serious personal injury cases, workers' compensation is a part of the process; therefore, it is his contention that by taking the time to understand workers' compensation a bit more, personal injury attorneys can learn how to make it work for them instead of against them. The article demonstrates how the focus is more on the nuts and bolts of workers' compensation and how it affects a personal injury case.
