Padilla Law Group, LLP

We handle workers' compensation and third-party claims

Previously on this blog we discussed an instance where agricultural workers were harmed when they were exposed to pesticides that were being sprayed nearby. This case serves as an example of the dangerous conditions that can be thrust upon unsuspecting workers in California. Sometimes, in situations like the one discussed above, the risks could have been completely avoided. In other cases, though, the job itself is inherently dangerous, oftentimes resulting in workplace injuries.

Regardless of how an injury occurs, so long as it wasn't caused by one's own horseplay or suffered outside of the scope of one's employment, an injured worker may be able to seek workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can help alleviate some of the financial damages associated with a workplace injury, including helping pay for lost wages and medical expenses. Sometimes, though, these benefits don't cover the full extent of one's losses. In these instances, it's worth considering whether a third-party claim can be filed in hopes of imposing liability and recovering additional compensation.

The skilled attorneys at O'Mara & Padilla Attorneys at Law are well-versed at handling workers' compensation and personal injury claims, oftentimes in conjunction with each other. These matters are often complicated, as it can be challenging not only to show that one qualifies for workers' compensation, but also that the negligence of another party outside of an employer contributed to the harm suffered. We diligently work to ensure we have a full understanding of the situation at hand and, with all of the evidence at our disposal, we work with our clients to develop the best legal arguments possible under the circumstances.

No attorney can guarantee any particular outcome when dealing with these cases, but we can promise to give our clients the competent and compassionate representation they deserve. Such advocacy oftentimes leads to desired outcome, as our track record of success clearly demonstrates. If you or a loved one are looking for legal representation in these types of matters, we encourage you to continue to explore our website.
