Striving to improve the Workers' Compensation industry, one case at a time. We take an aggressive approach to our cases and we keep our clients informed throughout the process. Let us be your advocate against the insurance company.
If you have been injured at work, we can help! We are here to make sure the insurance carrier provides any and all benefits you may be entitled to. These benefits can include payments for the time you miss work due to your injury, medical treatment, mileage reimbursement, and job-displacement benefits or "re-training."
The California Workers' Compensation system is a no-fault system. This means that if you sustain an injury while acting within the course and scope of your job you should be entitled to some type of benefits and you don't need to prove that your employer was "at fault" for the injury. The most common types of injuries include specific injuries like falls or lifting injuries, as well as injuries caused by repetitive work activities. If you had a slip and fall or lifting injury at work, or if you have pain from the wear-and-tear of long term employment, we want to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
If you have an open work injury claim and liability for your claim has been accepted by the insurance carrier, our firm can still help you. There are many rules and regulations that the insurance carriers and the physicians have to follow and quite often the rules are not complied with. Common examples include paying benefits at the wrong rate, failing to pay mileage reimbursement, delays in authorizing medical treatment, and physicians failing to properly evaluate your injuries. We know the laws and we strive to ensure that all parties comply with them.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the majority of work injury claims are being denied by the insurance carriers. If a claim remains denied the carrier is not required to pay benefits or provide medical treatment. If you have an injury claim that has been denied, don't lose hope! You still may have a right to pursue it. In fact, some of these denials can be overturned. We would love to review your denied claim to see if we can help overturn the denial and get you the benefits you deserve.
If you suspect that you have sustained a work injury or if you have questions about the Workers' Compensation process in general, please contact us right away. The law does impose restrictions on the injured worker so it is important to act quickly.
If you currently have an attorney, we can provide a free second opinion with honest feedback. We will tell you if your attorney is doing a thorough job and what we may do differently.

For the most part no one plans to get injured at work. However if and when it happens, you need an aggressive advocate to help you navigate the complicated Workers' Compensation process.
We take an aggressive approach to your case and keeping you informed is a priority to us. We won't shy away from a complicated legal issue and we will take a case all the way to trial if need be.
We have been involved in the Workers' Compensation industry for 8 years. We have seen all types of cases from minor injuries to catastrophic cases and we've seen the type of devastation they can cause in someone's life. Sadly the injured worker is now treated like cattle herded through these large firms and not like the valuable client that they are. We aim to change that approach and give you the respect you deserve.
We have worked for large firms and we have learned that keeping the clients informed is the key. Larger firms don't have the time to keep you updated on the case and when you call you speak to non-attorney representatives who are unable to answer complicated questions. We created this firm to be different from the norm. We strive to keep our client's informed and we make sure you have access to your attorney throughout the process.
