CaliforniaWorkers Compensation Lawyers in San Francisco, California

All states have enacted workers' compensation laws. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that provides a replacement for lost wages and medical benefits to an employment who is injured at work or during the course of his or her employment.


In exchange, the employee relinquishes the right to bring a lawsuit against the employer for a tort claim or negligence.


Workers' comp is also intended to provide payments to employees for permanent or temporary disabilities.


In most states, it is against the law for an employer to fire an employee for reporting an injury covered under workers' compensation.


Contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer in California if you were injured at work or during the course of your employment.

Workers Compensation Specialty Areas

Workers' Compensation Certification

CBLS Board Certification in Workers' Compensation Law - Lawyers board certified as specialists in workers' compensation law by the State Bar of California have demonstrated substantial involvement in this area of law.

The CBLS defines the term "workers' compensation law" as involving the "representation of parties in connection with industrial injury and disease claims."

The top rated workers' compensation attorneys in California have experience in the following areas: pretrial practice and procedures; trial; appellate; medical; rating; and rehabilitation.

A showing of substantial involvement in workers' compensation law requires experience in the taking depositions of witnesses other than physicians; pretrial conferences; petitions for removal under Labor Code Section 5310; and trials of workers' compensation cases, including expedited hearings.
