WORK RELATED INJURIES (Worker's Compensation)
You are entitled to receive 60% of your gross average weekly wage plus medical benefits. In many cases, an experienced attorney can negotiate a lump sum settlement. Worker's Compensation disputes are presented to the Dept. of Industrial Accidents. This is a separate court system with a distinct set of rules. Not all injury lawyers are familiar with this process. We are - and we have a high rate of success with work injuries.
SLIP and FALL
When you are injured because you have fallen on someone else's property (including your landlord), you have the right to recover based on the negligence of those who were responsible to maintain the property.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSDI) and (SSI)

Injuries to children can bring major settlements and jury awards. Children are held to a different legal standard than adults. Thus, there are many situations where an injured child can collect damgaes - even though the child 'seems' to be at fault. Children's settlements are often "structured" so that their money is invested and they recive it when they reach a specified age.

This includes associating with the "heavy hitters" from among the top trial lawyers in the country (at no extra cost to you). We also will retain expert witnesses to substantiate our position.
