Workers Compensation

Our Job Site and Workplace Accident Practice

Our Workers' Compensation Practice

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who have suffered an injury at work and need to seek benefits under the California workers' compensation laws. We have aggressively protected the rights of injured workers for more than 30 years. We will handle all aspects of your workers' compensation claim, helping you prepare and file the initial application, and handling all documentation related to any appeals. We will also act as your advocate in any hearings or meetings throughout the process. Often, when you have suffered a work-related injury and seek worker's compensation benefits, your biggest struggle is with your employer's workers' compensation insurance provider. We are familiar with the strategies employed by insurers, and will aggressively protect your interests, working to minimize attempts to delay, deny or diminish your claim.

We protect the rights of people who have been hurt on a job site or at work, helping you pursue all remedies available to you, from California workers compensation to third party claims. We handle all types of job-related injuries, such as:
  • Repetitive or cumulative stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee, shoulder, neck and back injuries
  • Psychological injuries, including mental stress or anxiety
We will represent you if you have suffered total disability or a serious or catastrophic loss, such as brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, burns, or amputation/loss of limb. We also protect the rights of surviving family members in wrongful death claims. We will be your staunch advocate with insurance companies and their lawyers, making certain you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled. We will work to minimize the delays, denials and attempts to diminish your claim. We have experience, skill and knowledge in the different ways to resolve your workplace injury.
