Workers' Compensation Law

If you have suffered a workplace injury, you may be entitled to benefits within the Workers' Compensation system. Only an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney can properly advise you of your rights following your on-the-job accident.

Keep in mind that it’s illegal for your employer to punish or fire you for being injured at work or for filing a Workers’ Compensation claim. If you think your job may be at risk for filing an injury claim, contact an attorney. Also, keep in mind that there are deadlines involved when filing a claim, so it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney to ensure your rights are protected.

In addition to being highly experienced in Workers' Compensation law, our attorneys keep abreast of the ever-changing laws impacting employees, and are on the legislative frontlines, helping to ensure that the rights of the state's injured workers are protected.

Activism is Key

GEK attorneys have spent decades on the frontlines of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association.

Language Is Not a Barrier

Client Testimonials

"Twice I have turned to attorney Richard Felton when choosing an advocate, and twice I have been rewarded for making the right choice.

Mr. Felton is a true professional, a cogent advisor who has a facile understanding of the law from the worker's point of view and who is then able to interpret even the most complex legal perspectives clearly and patiently for his clients."

Amy and Cynthia successfully navigated and settled my Workers’ Comp. claim/lawsuit after months of frustration and irritation. They were helpful, attentive, honest and forthright about every question and/or issue. The clout they brought to the table ensured my settlement was fair and necessary. I highly recommend this firm and its partners and associates for anyone struggling with their Workers’ Compensation problems.
This review is for Attorney Steve Scardino. I was referred by a friend to give him a call regarding a Workers’ Comp. claim. After a significant amount of time on the phone, Steve gave me an honest assessment of my case. The man kept taking my calls and provided some guidance that led me to a fair compensation. The best part, he didn’t need to take me on as a client. The guy is something else! I recommend anyone to call him. He will be open and honest about what he thinks of your situation. Thanks Steve.
Joanna Sacavitch was the attorney taking care of my Workers’ Compensation case. She was very professional, knowledgeable, helpful, kind and understanding of my situation. Any time I had a question or concern she was willing to explain and make sure I understood. She fought for a fair and just settlement, and I was very pleased with the result. I would strongly recommend her for any Workers’ Compensation case you have.
I used this firm twice for my Workers’ Compensation claim; I would recommend them a thousand times. They can do everything remotely or by phone these days. But even before COVID-19 I went into the office for the initial meeting and signing of paperwork, and I don’t think I ever needed to return; everything was done through phone calls, mail and email. They are very available and respond to you within an acceptable time.
My attorney was Adam Dombchik. I have had other attorneys in my past, and this is the first one that showed he cared about me and my injuries. He answered all my questions and gave me the time to explain all my problems. My case took some time to finish due to COVID but he still got it through. If I would ever need an attorney again he is going to be my first call. All I can say is thank you so much Adam for all you did.
Richard Felton took care of my wife’s case for nearly 20 years. His outstanding performance saved her life. She would not have made it through this incredibly difficult time without his support and the support of his amazing staff. You could not find a better firm to handle your case.
I truly could never thank Al Lizarraga enough for all his expertise and hard work; he went beyond my expectations! Not only did he get me way more than I expected, but he explained everything to me in a way I could understand. And, he was always there fighting for me. He is the BEST man for the job!! Thank you, Al!
Five months ago I had the privilege of having Erika Vargas representing me; what a great treat. Her supporting staff, including Fernando Luzan, were right on. You get hurt at work you need someone to have your back. They certainly had mine! You do not need to belong to a union for the help. Protect yourself…you’re worth it. They did all the grunt work.
