Workers' Compensation Attorney

Workers' Compensation

If you are injured on the job, California law provides you with the right to a number of benefits
under the Workers’ Compensation system. These include:

  • Medical treatment to cure or alleviate the injury, paid for by the employer.
  • Temporary Disability Benefits, to provide limited income during medical treatment.
  • Permanent Disability Benefits, as compensation for permanent limitations caused by
    the work injury.
  • Future medical benefits, if recommended by a physician.
In the past, rehabilitation benefits have been provided for, but this class of benefits was eliminated by “reform” legislation

Bob Taylor and his team will evaluate the facts of your case to determine whether additional compensation might be available. This could include compensation for discrimination based on your injury, or compensation for “serious and willful” misconduct by the employer. They will also investigate the possibility that your injury was caused by a person or firm other than your employer.

In this case you would be entitled to file a “third-party” personal injury action that might provide an award of damages significantly higher than available under Workers’ Compensation.

There is no charge for the initial consultation.
Attorney fees in worker’s compensation cases are on a contingent fee basis. You are charged a percentage of the award if any, subject to the approval of a Worker’s Compensation Judge.
