Long Beach Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Compensation for Workplace Injuries

A catastrophic injury is an injury that leaves the worker without the means to earn a living, dependent on friends and family for support and perhaps needing aid with the most basic activities of daily living.

Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are more common than you might think. Even injuries that do not at first appear to be too serious can have catastrophic consequences if competent care is not provided in a timely manner.

These injuries can destroy families and adversely affect the lives of our children and their children for generations to come.

Many injured workers are surprised to find that even in cases of catastrophic injury the workers' compensation claims process is complex, confusing and instead of helping catastrophically injured workers obtain benefits the system helps their employers and their insurance companies avoid paying benefits.

This is particularly tragic when catastrophic injuries change workers' lives forever and the long-term medical costs are simply too exorbitant to handle on their own.

If you have suffered a catastrophic workplace injury, our attorneys can help you obtain the full compensation available to you. Call 562-628-9400 or e-mail us to set up a consultation with a lawyer from the Law Offices of Richard Mark Baker.

Our Long Beach catastrophic injury attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience. We take a personalized, client-centered approach to our workers' compensation representation.

Any injury, no matter how small, can become catastrophic if an injured worker does not have the right kind of care. Catastrophic injuries can include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Injuries to the arms or legs, amputations
  • Pulmonary and/or cardiovascular injuries
  • Cancer
  • Burns and scarring
  • Severe emotional distress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Many first applications for Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, Defense Base Act/War Hazards Compensation Act, Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and California workers' compensation claims are denied or delayed unnecessarily. If your claim has been denied, do not give up. We have the experience and tenacity to help you obtain the compensation you need.
