“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley
The First Step
When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
The Next Step
If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job. You can order a free copy and I will cover the shipping too.

Second Party Work Injury Lawyer: Don't Leave Millions of Dollars On The Table
What we see is California workers compensation lawyers not understanding third party work injury law and second party work injury law. When this happens injured workers are literally leaving hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in compensation "on the table." Quite obviously, you don't want this to happen to you.
Second Party Cases
A Second party case is a civil lawsuit against your employer. Usually, California law does not allow you to sue your employer. An example of a second party case would be if your employer doesn't have workers' compensation insurance. When a California employer fails to get workers compensation coverage, you can sue your employer.
Another example of a second party case is if your employer intentionally injured you. Or they remove a guard from a power press. There are only limited reasons where the law allows you to sue your employer for a work injury.
Here is the bottom line, you will find few workers' compensation attorneys have the knowledge, expertise, and resources to properly handle these special types of work injury cases. First, they don't recognize viable third party and second party cases. Second, if they do recognize them, they seriously undervalue the cases. Third, they don't have the skills necessary to take on and beat the company's high powered lawyers.
This is the best advice you are going to get if you are a seriously injured worker in California.:Even if you have a workers compensation lawyer, consult with a seasoned California third party lawyer and California second party work injury lawyer.
Proceed With Care
You must proceed carefully when applying for California workers compensation benefits. One mistake in a doctor's record or a missing form can make the difference between immediate benefits or months, possibly years of delay. You will encounter a bureaucratic morass.
