Los Angeles Workplace Injury Lawyers
When you are injured on the job or in your personal life, it is easy to feel as if no one is on your side. You may be overwhelmed when you are fighting your employer or an insurance company with a team of lawyers.
Working with Berger & Michelena, however, means that you will be represented by an experienced attorney throughout the process. We protect the rights of injured workers, personal injury victims and their families. The firm has served workers’ compensation clients and personal injury victims in the Los Angeles area for more than 50 years.
California law does not require licensed attorneys to represent people at workers’ compensation hearings. Some law firms send non-attorneys to represent you at depositions or in court. But at Berger & Michelena, you will be represented by one of our attorneys at all times. We believe this is an important part of providing exceptional service and protecting your rights.
We understand how workers’ compensation law is applied and practiced by the people who work in our legal system: doctors, lawyers, judges and office staff. This practical knowledge can mean the difference between winning and losing a case. Our lawyers have been recognized by other attorneys at the bar through various honors and chairpersonship. Most importantly, however, is that many attorneys refer some of their most complex cases to us.
We understand that this is a difficult time and that you are facing numerous financial, legal and medical decisions. Our lawyers and staff will treat you and your family with compassion and respect as we work to provide you with the information you need to make decisions that are right for you.
Workers’ compensation and personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, you pay no fee unless we recover damages for you.
More Than 100 Years Of Combined Experience
