A work-related injury can punch a huge hole in your life that you may not be able to get out of without help. Even a minor injury can keep you out of work for a few days, costing you money, as well as the time it takes to fully recover. You need someone to help you manage the situation so that you can heal without having to worry about medical bills and lost wages. You need the help of an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer.

Thanks to our years of experience handling benefits claims for hundreds of clients, we know how to get you taken care of financially while you get ready to get back on your feet.
You’ve likely heard that you can handle a Workers’ Compensation claim on your own without assistance, probably from your employer or their insurance claims adjuster. Let’s look at some of the things you have to deal with to get the appropriate benefits.
If you think you can tackle these things on your own, great. However, the best course of action would be to have someone on your side willing to make sure you get the benefits you’re eligible to receive.
With our team on your side, you stand the best chance of getting all the benefits you’re eligible to receive. We know the system, we have the experience and we leave nothing to chance. Once we get the details you provide us during our first free conversation regarding your Workers’ Compensation claim, we will get to work as soon as we are able. We know how medical bills can snowball if you don’t get a handle on them, and we will work to see that the early costs are handled. We will also look at what can lie ahead for you regarding your treatment and healing so that we can try to get money for those issues as well. Whether you are out of work for a week or could be out of work permanently, you can count on our firm to help.
Your injuries may tell us and our experts that you won’t be able to return to work. That means you’re permanently disabled. Under California law, you may be able to receive certain kinds of compensation depending on your situation.
You will receive a regular payment based on how badly you are hurt and how much the injury has impacted your ability to do your job. You’ll receive enough to cover medical bills and the wages you have lost because of the injury.
However, the physicians’ findings are subject to change, you may get better, or take an unfortunate turn for the worse. You can later reopen the case with a stipulated award and take into account new and relevant health information.
You may wish to simplify matters with a lump sum payment. If things change, you won’t be able to modify this agreement. However, we will do our best to make sure you are well cared for with the appropriate settlement amount.
There will be a number of factors used to determine how much you will receive. These can include:
It may not be possible to reach an agreement with your employer’s insurance company regarding permanent disability awards in Workers’ Compensation cases. If it comes to that, you will have already found one of the best work injury law firms in the Los Angeles area working for you, ready to get you the medical benefits you deserve.

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.
