If you get hurt at work, the question quickly becomes how bad the injury is. If the injury is bad enough, you may end up becoming totally disabled — even if you get good medical care.
At the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez, our attorneys know how tough this can be to accept. What we can do is help you pursue all of the compensation you have coming to you for your injuries and disability. This may include compensation not only from workers’ comp, but also from other programs such as Social Security Disability.

What Benefits Are You Eligible For?
We help with all types of workers’ comp benefits, including:
- Temporary total disability — If you can’t work at all for a while after your injury, you are eligible for temporary total disability (TTD) payments. In California, those benefits are generally two-thirds of the pretax wages you’ll lose while you’re out.
- Medical care — Your employer is required to pay for medical treatment after a work injury. But there are limits to this coverage once you reach a status called maximum medical improvement.
- Permanent total disability — If the doctor who treats you concludes that you can’t return to work at all, you may be eligible for permanent total disability benefits.
- Social Security Disability — Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be available as well. Depending on your circumstances, the SSD benefits may partly offset the compensation you get from workers’ comp.
The main thing to know is that if you are 100 percent disabled and unable to go back to work, we can help you pursue maximum compensation. We have a proven track record of helping clients get compensation and handling issues of lifetime care.
These are difficult cases, involving brain injuries and other disabling conditions. If the insurance company offers you a financial settlement, we will work with financial consultants to make sure it is in your interests and is structured so that you don’t run out of money.
