Workers’ Compensation

Los Angeles Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Although the number of work-related injuries and illnesses are slowly declining, on the job accidents and incidents are still affecting a large number of the work force. In 2013, more than three million workers across the nation sustained a work-related injury or illness. More than half of the three million work-related injuries and illnesses sustained by workers in 2013 were severe enough for an employee to require either a job transfer or restriction. Individuals who have suffered a serious injury or illness while performing a job may be forced to take time off or worse, may be forced to learn a new occupation.

Experienced Legal Representation

Unable to work, many injured or sick workers may struggle to pay costly medical bills and basic living expenses. Financial struggles can be compounded by the challenges of dealing with the state’s workers’ compensation system. All too often, injured individuals are denied or delayed medical treatment and financial compensation.
