For obvious reasons the overwhelming majority of industrial claims filed in California (and, ultimately, adjudicated by the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board), are in the venue of California’s major population centers. There is a correlative between the number of jobs, and ultimately labor force participation, and the number of industrial injuries filed in any geographic region.

The vast majority of claims handled and ultimately litigated fall within the greater Southern California Region, San Francisco Bay area, Sacramento, Fresno/Bakersfield, and beautiful San Diego area.
