On December 2nd, 2015, a terrorist opened fire on office workers at the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, killing 14 and seriously injuring 22 others. A year later, many of those survivors are caught in a frustrating battle with the county’s and the state’s workers’ compensation programs.
Some survivors have not received all of the treatment recommended by their doctors. Others began treatment only to have the treatment later denied.
A representative of the county stated that San Bernardino workers’ compensation was planning on hiring a group of liaisons that would work specifically with the victims of the terrorist attack. He went on to say that the county would like to give the victims the coverage for medical treatment beyond the minimum requirements of the law.
