The Facts You Need About Types of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses

Workplace injuries, and the accidents that cause them, span a wide range of industries and can affect the entirety of the human body. Concussions, broken bones, comas, amputations and permanent disfigurements can happen in factories, manufacturing plants, construction zones, hospitals and even offices. Some injuries may even prove to be fatal, devastating the victim's family.

When a life-changing or fatal accident happens to you or a loved one, you need an advocate and champion by your side, a law firm that will fight to get you the benefits you deserve. In Southern California, that law firm is Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C.

In the past decade Michael Burgis has successfully litigated thousands of Workers' Compensation cases in Southern California. His knowledge, skill and reputation are invaluable to the firm's success. Our team offers the legal knowledge, client focus, aggressive advocacy and personalized attention that gets results after a worker has suffered a brain injury, back or spinal injury, or any other serious injury or job-related illness.

Building a Strong Case

First, our lawyers need to gather the details of your workplace accident. Were you struck by a falling object? Harmed by malfunctioning heavy work machinery? Injured by a fall from a broken or defective ladder? Developed back injuries due to years of sitting behind a desk?

Whether you became severely ill after a toxic exposure or a seemingly insignificant mishap made you susceptible to stroke or heart attack, cancer or pulmonary embolism, we can help. We will investigate the circumstances that led to your illness or injury, prepare your case thoroughly for negotiations with insurers and are always prepared to safeguard your interests in court if settlement negotiations are unproductive.

Finally — a real point of pride with us, from a personal service standpoint — you are unlikely to find another law firm that will treat you better. Everything we do for you is done with your comfort and convenience in mind. We are confident that once you have spoken with us, you will not want to talk to any other law firm.
