Are you asking yourself, can I get workers compensation benefits even if the accident was my fault?

Workers compensation is a "no fault" system. This means that you don't have to prove any one was negligent in causing your injury. Since fault is not an issue in workers compensation you are entitled to benefits even if you cause your own injury. However you can not intentionally cause your own injury and obtain benefits. But if you forget to tie your shoe and you trip on your show lace and fall and get hurt you caused your own injury and you get workeres compensation benefits. Even a suicide can be covered by workers compensation.

If you think you have been injured or are not sure if you are at fault for your injury call us today for a free case evaluation at 1 (866) 951-2555

Do you have a work related injury? Are you asking yourself, "Can I represent myself?"

Yes. Anyone can act as their own attorney with regard to their work injury case. In fact as soon as you are hurt at work, you are acting as your own attorney until you hire a licensed attorney to represent you. You need to understand that you are at a great disadvantage if you are your own attorney because you will have to talk with an insurance person who handles workers compensation cases everyday and has been trained by an insurance company how to defend against such claims. Everything you say to an insurance adjuster can be used against you.

At the work injury law offices of Jackson & Jackson we have dedicated ourselves to knowing the Workers Compensation Law better than the insurance company representatives. This is how we make our living. We Spend many hours every month going to seminars as well as reading and discussing the latest changes in the Workers Compensation Law. Yes you can represent yourself but it will most likely cost you more than the 15% you would pay an attorney. Not to mention the peace-of-mind of knowing that you are getting the maximum compensation under the law. The last thing you need after a work injury is to be left wondering "can they do that to me?" For this reason our clients tell us that hiring us is a win-win proposition.

Do you find yourself asking, what is a California "certified" legal specialist? Why should I hire one?

California attorneys who are certified as specialists have taken and passed a written examination in their specialty field, demonstrated a high level of experience in the specialty field, fulfilled ongoing education requirements and been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.

Only these attorneys can advertise or identify themselves as "certified" specialists in California because they are the only attorneys who are certified either by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization or an organization whose certification program has been accredited by the State Bar. (Such an organization must have requirements for certification that are at least equal to those of the State Bar's program.)

At Jackson & Jackson all our attorneys are Certified Workers Compensation Specialists and have gone through the rigorous programs to insure that we are the most knowledgeable about the workers comp laws of California! We are a powerful voice for the injured worker and we can help you receive the benefits you deserve. Call us at 1 (866) 951-2555 for a free case evaluation.

What if my employer did not buy Workers Compensation Insurance?

The law requires every person or company that has at least one employee to buy a policy of Workers Compensation Insurance. When an employer does not buy this insurance, the State of California will pay the benefits to you. These cases require special knowledge and are handled differently than cases where there is insurance and many attorneys don't handle this type of case. At the work injury law offices of Jackson & Jackson we know how to handle a case when there is no insurance and we have handled many such cases over the years. In fact other Workers Compensation attorneys send their uninsured cases to us! See our Recent Cases section for some examples.

If your employer willfully fails to buy workers compensation insurance the law allows you to file your claim in civil court or the workers compensation court. While the civil court claim will enjoy certain advantages over other types of civil claims it is not always your best option to file your claim there. It may be better to file your claim at the workers compensation appeals board. The choice of venue is very important and an attorney who has experience with these types of claims should be consulted. If you think your employer is willfully uninsured contact us and set an appointment to discuss your situation with one of the knowledgeable attorneys at Jackson & Jackson.
