Workers' Compensation Law
For nearly three decades, the Los Angeles law firm's Workers' Compensation attorneys have fought to obtain the full range of workers' compensation benefits for employees who have suffered workplace injuries. These include on-the-job injuries due to a specific event, and injuries that occur over time due to repetitive physical stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and leg problems. Injuries also include other work-related illnesses such as hypertension, heart disease, breathing problems or exposure to toxic chemicals or fumes. We have a team of highly experienced and qualified California Worker Compensation lawyers to help you win the case. Our firm continues to be an active participant in many organizations within Los Angeles and Southern California dealing with issues involving Workers' Compensation Law in Los Angeles.
The California Workers Compensation law is designed to protect both the employee and the employer in the event of an on-the-job injury. California workers compensation laws provide guaranteed coverage to employees for medical care for their personal injury and, in many cases, provide guaranteed compensation during and after the recovery period as well. By seeking the services of our expert California workers compensation lawyers, you will be able to justify your stand easily.
In California, employers are required to carry Workers' Compensation insurance, or qualify for self-insurance to cover such injuries. This may cover benefits for lost earnings during recovery from an injury, reimbursement of medical expenses, and compensation for any permanent impairment or disability. Determining your eligibility and compensation can give rise to complex issues which may lead to disputes, and that is when you will need an experienced California Workers' Compensation lawyer advocating for you to make sure you receive fair payment and medical care for your injuries. Protecting your rights is particularly important during the First 90 Days of a Workers’ Compensation Claim.
Sometimes workplace injuries involve a third party - someone other than your employer. The expertise of our Workers' Compensation attorneys, combined with that of our Personal Injury attorneys, allows us to coordinate third-party cases ensuring you the best possible outcome.
We are also advocates of a safe and healthy work environment, and work closely with many of Southern California's labor unions and other employer groups to improve working conditions and employees' rights.
