WORKERS' COMPENSATION

Many people are hurt in work-related accidents every day. Injured employees may be entitled to benefits from a worker's compensation claim, personal injury lawsuit, or both.

If you are injured, the most important thing you can do to protect your rights is to act quickly. The law imposes strict time limitations on how long you have to seek workers compensation in California. Don't delay. If you have been injured, call or email us today for a free, no obligation consultation to learn how to protect your rights. 


The benefits you can get after a work accident depend on the types of injuries you suffered and your post-accident needs. Depending on the details of your individual situation, you may be entitled to receive the following types of support and benefits:


  • Medical care and compensation for medical expenses

  •  Continued therapy or rehabilitation

  •  Recovery of a portion of your lost wages from any time you missed from work

  •  Temporary disability benefits 

  •  Vocational retraining
