On Monday, March 23, 2020, the chief justice of California issued an order suspending jury trials statewide for the next 60 days due to COVID-19 health restrictions. We realized this severely impacts many of our clients, and we are ready to work with your changing circumstances. We can:
- reschedule exams.
- change an exam to a record review by our physicians, which can be completed even with the trial suspension and stay-at-home orders. This can be beneficial if you have a video or telephone settlement conference or arbitration scheduled; you’ll be armed with the knowledge you need to move forward.
- schedule phone calls with the medical consultant on your case; we want you to have the m...

MRK Medical Consultants remains open for business. Our staff is working from home and can be contacted through their normal MRK email addresses. Our physicians continue to do record reviews and all other work they can do remotely.

Our staff is currently rescheduling IMEs set for all satellite offices through April 15, 2020. We will determine as we go along if that date will need to be pushed even further back. We also recognize that your trial, arbitration, or settlement conference dates could be affected by California Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order of March 19, 2020.

The last few days have presented us all with large amounts of information on the Coronavirus. The number of cases have risen and the world markets have reacted causing even more stress and it seems at times we are getting conflicting information and advice from sources in our government.

Yesterday the SF 49ers got beat by Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs comeback kid. Heartbreaking loss for the franchise and Northern California. Congrats KC.

THINGS TURN OUT BEST FOR PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE BEST OF THE WAY THINGS TURN OUT. JOHN WOODEN

I am so deeply grateful for all of the MRK employees and consultants who do their best every day so the MRK process can run smoothly. Thank you all for doing your jobs so well.

Two years ago our office went digital and many of MRK's employees had to learn new computer skills and basically learn new ways to perform our jobs. It was a struggle at times but we all stepped up and did it. The age range of the employees vary and most did not learn how to use computers as kids.

Today I saw a post on a neighborhood community site that a woman was outraged because our local Taco Bell was installing a kiosk for lobby ordering and she could not believe that Taco Bell would ask her 60ish mother to use a computer to order food. The Taco Bell was still going to have counter ordering for folks that couldn't manage the computer. This post led me to reflect on how many new s...
