Compensation for Work-Related Injuries

Although workers' compensation systems are complicated anywhere in the country, here in California the system is in a state of chaos. Injured workers in California who try to manage their workers' comp cases on their own face extraordinary risks and challenges.

At the Law Offices of Richard Mark Baker, our Long Beach workers' compensation attorneys are California State Bar Association Certified Specialists and have more than 50 years of combined experience with claims involving the California workers' comp system. We will fight to protect your interests as you recover from your injuries.

Workers' Compensation Law in California

All California employers are required to provide their employees with medical treatment and monetary compensation when their workers are injured on the job.

Originally, the California Workers' Compensation Act was designed to protect employers from lawsuits filed by injured employees. In exchange employees were guaranteed limited benefits including medical treatment and some measure of wage loss benefits without having to file a lawsuit.

Unfortunately, over the years employers and their insurance companies have written and rewritten the law, each time taking away more and more of the benefits supposedly guaranteed to their employees.

Even now, most employees expect that in exchange for their loyalty and good work, if and when they're hurt at work, they'll receive the benefits provided for by law. Instead, they find that their employers (or their insurance carriers) are, at best, reluctant to provide medical treatment or pay disability benefits and that they find countless ways to delay whatever benefits are due. At the Law Offices of Richard Mark Baker, we help injured clients in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura County obtain the full compensation available to them under the law.
