About three out of every 100 workers suffered a workplace injury nationwide in 2019, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That figure cuts across all occupations, from fast food employee to money manager. If you’ve been injured at work, you clearly aren’t alone. But it isn’t just that there are others in the same boat; you also have people to go to for help with your injury-related problems. You need medical care, you need to stay current with your bills, and you need someone to deal with the insurance company. You need the assistance of a good Workers’ Compensation attorney.
At the Law Offices of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., we’re prepared to battle everyone who stands between you and a fair Workers’ Compensation settlement. Our Workers’ Comp lawyers have years of experience winning cases on behalf of people all over Southern California, people just like you who have missed work because of an on-the-job injury and need a little help getting back on their feet.
Our Workers’ Compensation Lawyers can help with several issues that could stop you from getting the compensation you deserve. We can:
Before you even agree to have us help with your Workers’ Compensation case, we’ll take the time to listen to your story and suggest the best course of action. We’ll let you know how we can help, and this conversation will be free of charge.
Our firm helps people receive Workers’ Compensation benefits in four major areas:
Our firm’s practice areas (Employment Law, Personal Injury, and Workers’ Compensation) are all related. We believe this gives us a unique insight to resolving work injury cases. We pride ourselves on our record helping clients with catastrophic injuries and all types of work-related injuries for which a few days off of work is not going to cut it.
If you’re injured on the job in California, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries that can help pay for any future medical care you might need. In many cases, your injuries are likely to get better and you can return to work. However, your condition may not improve, or it may change for the worse over time. We can help put together a solution that takes future medical expenses into account.
When you are injured at work and must be out for a few days, you may be eligible to receive temporary disability benefits. If you can’t perform your normal duties, you may receive partial disability benefits. And if you can’t work at all, you may receive total disability payments. These payments end when the medical professional has determined that you’ve improved as much as possible.
If you’re denied Workers’ Compensation benefits for some reason, you may still be eligible for temporary benefits through the State of California.
If you’re well enough to work again but your injuries prevent you from taking your old job, you may want to seek a new line of work. Workers’ Compensation benefits are available to help you meet that goal. Job displacement benefits are a stipend that pays for training sessions where you can learn a new skill and start on a new path.
Some work-related injuries may have a lasting effect on you and your ability to work. You may then be eligible for permanent disability payments.
Whether you’re in need of temporary disability benefits or medical benefits for the long term, you need the Law Offices of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., on your side. Winning benefits for our clients is our business, of course. However, we relish the opportunity to help people in their time of need. The suffering and stress that comes with a Workers’ Compensation claim can be an impediment to healing. Let us handle the claim while you get better.
Our ability to assist you starts with our free consultation. After we get the complete story from your point of view, we can assess your options and advise you on next steps. We can come to you using our Mobile Recovery Vehicles if your injuries have left you immobile, hospitalized, or otherwise without transportation. After you’ve agreed to let us represent you in the negotiations with the insurers over your claim, we’ll get to work as soon as possible.
In the end, we don’t collect a dime of payment from you unless we help you obtain the benefits you deserve. We’ll foot the bill to collect the information you need and do the paperwork to get your claim going.
People may tell you that you don’t need a lawyer to process your Workers’ Compensation claim. While you have the option of representing yourself, consider allowing us to put our expertise to work for you. Our Workers’ Compensation lawyers know the system and how to get you the best possible claim under your circumstances. Once you’ve spoken with us, you won’t want to go anywhere else. Call us at (888) BURGIS1 and see for yourself. You can also contact us online.

Michael Burgis & Associates really goes the extra mile in fighting for getting their clients the medical attention, benefits and compensation they deserve. Highly recommend this firm for anyone who's suffered a work injury, feels lost and needs an aggressive attorney in their corner.
Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
