Injured While Traveling For Work?
You have suffered an injury while traveling outside California to make deliveries, to visit a customer, to attend a trade show or for some other job-related purpose.

At Berger & Michelena, we have answers to these and other questions you may have. Our law firm provides results-oriented representation for California workers who are injured while working in other locations and out-of-state workers who are injured while in California.
Representing Workers Injured In Other States
Most California workers who are injured while on the job while working outside California are covered by the California workers’ compensation system. This entitles them to obtain benefits for medical treatment, expenses related to medical care and a portion of their lost wages.
Berger & Michelena is committed to helping injured workers get all of the medical care and other benefits they are entitled to receive. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to protect your rights and help you obtain the best possible outcome.
Some workers who were hired outside the state and were then transferred to California may be covered by the workers’ compensation system in the state in which they were hired. In a free consultation, a lawyer at Berger & Michelena can advise you of your rights and what you should do. We can also refer you to a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer in the state in which you are covered.
Out-Of-State Workers Injured In California
If you live elsewhere and were injured while on the job in California, you can file a workers’ compensation claim in California. This provides you with an important advantage.
Generally speaking, the California workers’ compensation system provides more generous workers’ compensation benefits than other states. By filing in California rather than your home state, you may be able to obtain significantly more benefits and compensation than you would otherwise. Berger & Michelena can handle all aspects of your case, usually without the need for you to return to California.
