Worker’s Compensation

The last thing that any worker expects to happen is that they will sustain an injury on the job. However, accidents do occur quite regularly in and around the Los Angeles area. No industry is immune to injury risks for their workers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were approximately 2.8 million total non-fatal workplace injuries or illnesses reported during the latest year of data available.
Some of the most common injuries that the attorneys at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz help victims with include:
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Amputation injuries
  • Severe strains or sprains
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Occupational cancers
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Emotional or psychological injuries
Our workers’ compensation team also has extensive experience helping workers who have sustained various repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome. Other repetitive stress injuries include those to the hands, back, knees, and neck. We also recognize that not all workplace injuries are traumatic. Many are internal illnesses caused by job-related stressors. That is why we take workplace injury cases related to fibromyalgia, heart-related stress claims, and other physiological illnesses.
Our workers compensation attorneys understand that workers are often denied benefits for valid claims. Our goal is to investigate our clients’ work injury incidents in order to secure maximum compensation for their injuries.

We regularly help clients recover the following:

Medical benefits
We work to ensure that every injured client receives the necessary medical care to treat their injuries within the confines of the workers’ compensation laws.

Temporary disability benefits:
It is vital that injured employees receive benefits if they are unable to work due to their injuries and at the correct rate prescribed by law.

Permanent disability benefits
If a worker sustains an injury that causes a permanent disability, they deserve to be compensated for the full amount as allowed by law for their injury

Social Security Disability benefits
If a disabling work injury lasts or will last more than 12 months, our attorneys will work to obtain benefits through your SSD claim.
