Los Angeles Work Injury Lawyers

California workers' compensation is a no-fault, exclusive remedy system. This means that employees injured on the job are entitled to medical care and wages benefit no matter who was at fault, and in return are prevented from suing their employers.

However, if a third party caused the employee's workplace accident or injury, the employee can bring a personal injury lawsuit against that individual or entity. The Law Offices of P. Paul Aghabala & Associates has had experience and success with third-party work injury claims. We are committed to maximizing your workers' compensation claim and all other recoveries.

Centrally located in Sherman Oaks, we handle work injury cases in San Fernando Valley and across Los Angeles. Arrange a free consultation to explore and protect your rights.

Experience With Work-Related Accidents And Injuries

You are automatically covered by workers' compensation for work-related injury or illness, but employers and insurance companies will often challenge these claims or try to downplay or terminate your benefits. You should have knowledgeable legal advocacy to stand up for the benefits you deserve, including medical treatment and temporary disability benefits, as well as permanent disability and supplemental job displacement benefits. Family members are also entitled to death benefits for fatal work accidents. At Aghabala & Associates, we are extensively familiar with workers' comp claims, including representation in lump-sum settlements and administrative law judge (ALJ) hearings.

Third-Party Lawsuits For Serious Work Injury

Third-party claims are not automatic. You will need to prove that the other party was negligent and you will need to justify your claims for damages. Los Angeles work injury attorney Paul Aghabala has extensive experience in personal injury litigation, with millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, including recoveries for workplace accidents. We have the resources to hire professional investigators and other experts to build a solid case.

While employers and co-workers are exempt from lawsuits, you may be able to sue a general contractor or subcontractor for negligence at a job site, another motorist who caused an on-duty collision, a property owner who created unsafe conditions or a manufacturer of dangerous equipment.

We handle all types of work injuries, including:

  • Falls from heights (ladders, scaffolding, roofs)
  • Slip-and-fall / trip-and-fall hazards
  • Power tool and machinery accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents (cranes, forklifts, etc.)
  • Vehicle accidents and loading dock injuries
  • Fires, explosions and electrical shock
  • Disabling back and neck injuries
  • Workplace assaults

  • In a third-party lawsuit, we can pursue damages for past and future medical care, lost wages and projected earnings, permanent disability or disfigurement, and your pain and suffering. These damages are above and beyond your workers' comp benefits.

    We Handle All Your Claims And All The Details

    Our goal is to take over the legal burdens so that you can focus on healing from your injuries, getting your life back together and returning to work when you are ready. The legal team at Aghabala & Associates is prepared to represent in claims and hearings, and if necessary trials and appeals, to demand and secure your rightful compensation.
