If you are facing a permanent disability from your injury, we know this is a difficult time for you and your family. You must make decisions about your future medical care, as well as figure out how to care for your family. Whether your disability is partial or total, you may have to change jobs or stop working completely. Your employer’s insurance company may offer a settlement, but don’t make any decisions until you speak with a lawyer.
At the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez, with combined experience of over 40 years as lawyers in this field, we understand how the California workers compensation system works. Before founding our firm, Mr. Hussain worked as an insurance adjuster and Mr. Gutierrez is a former Worker’s Comp Appeals Board judge. We can help you structure your settlement to keep you financially stable over time. We will also fight to make sure you receive every benefit you are entitled to.

Caring For Your Injury Over The Long Term
Although your employer must cover your medical treatment for a work injury, the obligation does not last forever. Once you have reached your maximum medical improvement, which means you have recovered as much as you ever will, your employer’s coverage has a limit. If you have a total disability, you will be paid permanent disability benefits for life. You may be eligible for other programs as well, such as Social Security Disability benefits.
