How to Seek Compensation for Your Workplace Injury
According to the
National Safety Council, an on-the-job injury occurs every seven seconds and accidents are especially
- Public service officials
- Truck drivers
- Home service specialists
- And construction workers
Many times, and in any industry, a worker cannot afford to take time off
work to properly recover which is why it is vital they seek the financial

get you the help you need.
In any case, insurance companies will not have a workers’ best interests
at heart, and many seek to lowball or deny injury claims. Our Oakland
workers’ comp attorney will fight for your right to full and fair
