A work-related accident can be painful, confusing, and emotional. If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, it is important to do what is necessary to protect yourself and speak with a qualified East Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney. Workers’ compensation benefits (sometimes referred to as “workman’s comp”) exist to help those injured in work-related injuries heal, recover, and elevate their quality of life. That said, the process can be complex and lengthy. One mistake can result in claim denial, treatment denial, or even deeper confusion.

How can our attorneys help?

Unfortunately, during a workers’ compensation case, your employer’s insurance company may not treat you fairly. You may encounter roadblocks such as a denied claim, requests for excessive amounts of proof, or delayed payments. Your employer may also make it more difficult than necessary for you to obtain fair compensation by failing to submit your claim on time or refusing to corroborate your story. In these situations, our dedicated East Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney can help you protect your rights and demand justice.

When you hire a lawyer, you have someone on your side. Your attorney will not allow anyone to take advantage of you during the fight for fair and full workers’ compensation benefits. An attorney can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, aggressively arguing for a more reasonable compensatory award based on your injuries and related losses. A lawyer may be able to secure you greater compensation than you could have received alone. If settlement negotiations fail to achieve the desired result, our East Los Angeles workers’ compensation lawyers can take your case to court in order to fight for a better outcome.

Types of Workers’ Comp Cases We Handle

For many years, we have helped clients recover the compensation they deserve for injuries including:

  • Back injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Unsafe work condition injuries
  • Occupational disease and illness/long-term exposure
  • Repetitive motion injuries/continuous trauma
  • Catastrophic or fatal workplace accidents

Compensation for Workplace Accidents 

This includes all compensation for:

  • Medical treatment including diagnostic testing, physical therapy, medications, surgery, counseling, and rehabilitation
  • Temporary disability benefits while off work by a doctor
  • Permanent disability benefits for any residual symptoms and/or limitations
  • Retraining benefits
  • State of California’s Return-to-Work Fund Supplement payment
  • Lost support for financially dependent heirs

Because our firm is dedicated to workers’ rights, our East Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorneys are also able to do everything possible to obtain compensation if a possible multi-employer/third-party claim issue arises.

In addition, in every workers’ compensation case, we work solely on contingency. We will never collect any attorney’s fees until we obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.

Third party claims 

Your workers’ compensation case may involve a third-party claim if someone other than your employer negligently caused or contributed to your injuries. A third party is an entity not directly involved in the accident that was a factor in causing your injuries to occur. An injured worker could have a third-party claim against a product or equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor, a property owner.

Naming a third party as a defendant in a lawsuit may take assistance from a skilled workers’ compensation attorney in Los Angeles. Our lawyers can hire outside investigators and experts to get to the bottom of your case. Whether your serious injury came from a fall, exposure to toxic substances, electric shock, falling objects, structural collapses, a transportation accident, repetitive motion or a violent crime, we can uncover the truth behind who or what caused the incident to occur. Then, we can go up against this party for compensation on your behalf.
