WORKERS COMP LAW IN CA: I used to work for a company as an acupuncturist. I worked on a patient on behalf of an attorney (on a lien) and now I was subpoenaed by this patient. Do I have to go? What happens if I don't respond to the subpoena or don't go to give my testimony?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

Yes, unfortunately, if you are subpoenaed, you are obligated to go and testify. If you refuse to go and testify, you could be found in contempt of court and be required to pay a fine.
