Our San Diego Attorneys Assist You with Workplace Injury Recovery

Workers’ compensation and third-party injury claims

Sidiropoulos Law Firm, APC has assisted injured workers and their families in San Diego since 1996. Because our practice is entirely devoted to injury recovery, our lawyers know the full range of options you have available to you after a workplace injury. We help you reach the maximum possible workers’ compensation benefits and, if applicable to your case, we recover damages from negligent third-party individuals or corporations.

California Division of Workers’ Compensation program

In the past, a worker who was injured on the job often had no financial resources to pay for medical care or the cost of living. In addition, employers would typically fire injured workers who could no longer perform their work duties, leaving their families indigent. Even if the employee could prove employer negligence, the lawsuit usually took months or years to resolve.

The workers’ compensation program changed these unjust circumstances. Under the California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), injured workers can receive payments for medical bills, disability and lost wages, and families can collect funds for the death of their loved ones. Workers do not have to prove negligence to recover. In exchange, they waive their rights to sue their employers in civil courts in most cases.

How our attorney can help you recover workers’ compensation benefits

Most California employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance and to comply with the laws of the state regarding filing a timely claim. However, the statutes governing the program are complex and you may not truly understand your rights under the system. Our attorneys advise you on preserving your rights to the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.

Third-party personal injury lawsuits

You may also have a claim against a third party for your injuries if, for example:

You were paving a roadway when you were struck by a distracted driver.

You were driving between sales calls when you were involved in an automobile crash.

You were repairing an elevator that suddenly went into freefall because of a defective mechanism.

You slipped on a spilled liquid in the grocery store where you were stocking the product your company sells.

You entered a property to perform landscaping services when a dog attacked you.

You were violently attacked at your office because the security service responsible for video surveillance and security guards failed to perform its duties.

Our personal injury lawyers review your case to determine if a third party may have contributed to your accident.
