Help With Workers’ Compensation Issues

In theory, the workers’ compensation system is simple. If you are injured at work, regardless of whether you were at fault, you should qualify for workers’ comp benefits.

However, the process of actually applying for and being approved for benefits is anything but simple. In fact, claim denials and underpayment of claims are common. That is why it is important to have skilled legal representation on your side.

Van Nuys lawyer Fakhrudeen Hussain understands what it takes to build a successful workers’ comp claim. He used to work for insurance companies, so he understands how they think and how to combat their strategies. He is joined in practice by attorney John Gutierrez, who spent 23 years as a workers’ compensation judge. Mr. Gutierrez has handled thousands of these cases over his more than 33 years of practice.

The Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez will work hard to ensure that you receive the full amount of benefits to which you are entitled. Call 888-997-3701 for a free initial consultation.

Some Injuries Happen Quickly, But Other Conditions Develop Over Time

Some injuries, such as broken bones, happen quickly. It’s easy to say exactly when they occurred.

Other work-related conditions develop over weeks, months or years. Some of these involve shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other conditions. Even workplace stress (from pressure to meet deadlines, harassment, etc.) can lead to physical and mental problems that may be covered by workers’ compensation.

No matter how you were injured, we are here for you. We can help you pursue compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and temporary or permanent disabilities.
