Butts & Johnson — Reputation For Results In Workers' Comp Cases Since 1990

An accurate determination of your California workers' compensation benefits can be an extremely complex process, and requires a correctly completed application that our attorneys can help you with. Depending on the state law that is in play after your workplace accident, you could be entitled to benefits that include:

  • Temporary disability benefits that partially replace lost wages if the injured worker was unable to work for more than three days
  • Permanent disability benefits that at least partially replace lost wages
  • Medical care
  • Death benefits for surviving family members
  • Retraining benefits

You may be in line for additional benefits if the circumstances of your accident allow you to file a third-party claim against others who may have caused your injury — in other words, if you were injured in a company vehicle and the other motorist was at fault, or if your injury was caused by a defective or malfunctioning machine, in which the machine manufacturer may be liable.

To eliminate any worries you might have about the cost of our quality legal services, we deliver our hard work on a contingency fee basis. You owe no attorney fee unless we win your case.
