San Diego Workers' Compensation Lawyers - Securing the Compensation You Need to Safely Recover

Firm Overview

Most workers and their employees value a job well done. On-the-job injuries, however, can change that dynamic very quickly. In addition to the injured worker having to cope with sometimes debilitating health issues, the worker must also face the economic and emotional challenges caused by missing work for an extended period of time. Thankfully, the Diefer Law Group promises you will never have to face the situation alone. Contact our firm if your injury is related to any of the following: Construction Accidents Repetitive-movement Injuries Slip-and-fall Accidents Farm Accidents Factory Accidents Warehouse Accidents Explosions Work-related Hearing Loss Auto Accidents (during working hours) Mental illness (i.e., depression; triggered by stress or chronic harassment) Stress claims (i.e., triggered by chronic harassment or a hostile work environment or supervisor) As a firm that handles both personal injury and workers' compensation cases, we understand the complex interactions between workers' compensation and private injury lawsuits that can affect the outcomes of third-party workplace accident claims. While claims can be filed and resolved satisfactorily by the individual, worker's compensation claims are generally known to be time-consuming, complicated and frequently contentious. Your employer and their insurance company will be seeking to limit their responsibility and financial liability and not looking out for you. Generally, a worker's compensation claim may settle for more value when an attorney handles it versus claims handled by self-represented parties.
