Los Angeles Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Since 1984 GEK's Workers' Compensation attorneys have been dedicated to fighting for the rights of those in Southern California who are hurt at work. In the ensuing years, the Workers' Compensation system has changed drastically, and not in a positive way for the state's injured workers.

Major legislative changes have presented many challenges to those representing injured workers. GEK attorneys collaborate as a team, brainstorming with each other, sharing knowledge and experience, as they strive for—and succeed in—developing legal strategies that meet the challenges presented by the ever-changing system.
