WHEN IT COMES TIME FOR YOUR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION SETTLEMENT, EXPERIENCE COUNTS
I have been representing Injured Workers for over 30 years. Over this time, I have developed a “GAME PLAN” approach to a client’s case. In our initial meeting, we will discuss your case and your life situation to develop a GAME PLAN that satisfies your present and future needs. I will personally handle your case. We return your calls within 24 hours, and I am always happy to meet face to face, or by any other means of communication that you prefer.
I will take all legal steps to obtain your Workers’ Compensation Benefits which include, Medical Treatment, Disability Payments, Vocational Retraining, and Medical Mileage. I will also recommend top Doctors to treat your injury as well as a 2nd and 3rd opinions if needed. We also help in obtaining related benefits including State Disability, Social Security Disability, and Medi-Cal. At some point in your case, I will negotiate your settlement which includes a CASH settlement or Settlement which provides for medical treatment for life.
Your Worker’s Compensation Attorney in San Diego
In cases where your injury at work was caused by a NEGLIGENT THIRD PARTY, I will coordinate the lawsuit to obtain additional compensation apart from your Workers’ Compensation benefits. If you have Medicare rights, I will secure your right by obtaining a special Medicare Set Aside. Unfortunately, a Workers’ Compensation injury can result in other legal issues like Divorce, Bankruptcy, Unlawful Detainer (eviction), and employer Discrimination. Whatever legal issues you have I will provide counseling and referrals. I also provide “SECOND OPINIONS” if you are not happy with your present attorney.
There is no fee for our consultation and no pressure to sign up. If you do retain me, attorney fees are set by the judge and are usually 15% of your settlement. If you change attorney, you still pay one 15% fee. If there is no settlement, for some reason, then you pay nothing,
So, give me a call, and let’s get to work on your individual Workers’ Comp GAME PLAN.

Your Injury should not prevent you from living your life.
Lump Sum Settlements
There are several types of lump sum payments available and we work hard to make sure you are getting all of the benefits you are entitled to.
Worker’s Compensation is basically made up of three benefits: disability payments, medical treatment, and vocational retraining. We make sure you are getting what you need.
Workplace Settlements may or may not be connected to a worker’s compensation claim. We help you determine the best course of action.
Injury Claims can be unrelated to a work injury. You may have experienced an accident not your fault. We specialize in injury claims.
Sometimes it is necessary to recover from insurance companies and or insurance settlements. This where we come in.
