On June 25, 2009, Bryan Ramos and Adriana Sola Capifali were featured on channel 890 “Poderosa” to discuss workers’ compensation issues particular to the Hispanic worker. The Georgia attorneys were interviewed “live” and fielded questions from listeners. The lawyers discussed matters including the medical treatment for injuries to a worker’s neck, hands, back, arms, and legs. Additionally, the issues of mental health counseling, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder were analyzed as a part of an industrial accident claim for benefits.
According to Bryan Ramos, “the workers’ health is the most important aspect of the claim. It is critical that the workers receive quality medical care to make them whole again if possible.” The lawyers also handled questions about weekly income benefits, wages, and formulation of the workers’ compensation rate. The legal question of a worker’s death and dependent benefits were also answered as many Hispanic workers have dangerous occupations and job duties. The entire interview was conducted in Spanish.
