Los Angeles Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Dedicated to Helping Injured Workers
In the last few years, California’s workers’ compensation laws have become more stringent, making it harder for injured workers to collect benefits for workplace injuries. At The Levine Firm, we are dedicated to helping injured workers as we constantly stay abreast of changes in workers’ compensation law that could affect our clients.
It is extremely important that you contact a workers’ compensation attorney as soon after the injury as possible, as there is a limited time frame for filing a claim. If you do not file a claim within the allotted time frame, you could lose the right to benefits that include temporary disability, medical treatment for your injury, permanent disability if you are unable to return to work, and future medical benefits.
Often when people think of workplace injuries covered by workers’ compensation, they envision construction workers falling or electrical engineers being burned or shocked. However, we routinely represent clients in a wide variety of industries, including software engineers, secretaries, and laborers.

While our lawyers handle many one-time injuries, like falls, burns, and bone fractures, we also handle cases related to repetitive stress injuries (RSI), such as carpal tunnel and cumulative trauma.
Under the new workers’ compensation law, injured workers are required to consult an employer-selected doctor for the first ninety days of their treatment. We understand that many employers have doctors willing to let people return to work even before they have recovered from their injuries. We routinely handle cases for these workers. We also handle cases for people who have had their workers’ compensation claims denied and take them through the appeals process.
If you have been injured at work and need a law firm that has a broad range of experience helping injured workers, please contact The Levine Firm immediately. We represent workers compensation clients on a contingency-fee basis. This means that you do not pay us for our efforts unless and until we obtain benefits for you.
