Does Hikida Create a Change in the Law of Apportionment?

Ray Stanek, Esq. Concord, California

The recent case of Hikida v. WCAB (2017) 12 Cal. App.5th 1249 presents an interesting question as to whether the decision has weakened the rules of apportionment in the California workers’ compensation system.
