San Jose Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

The main source of benefits for injured workers is workers’ compensation, and the attorneys at Rocha & Schmidt have a combined 48 years of experience helping injured workers through the California workers’ compensation system. There are many steps along the application process at which your application may be disputed or denied, or where medical examinations may be required that have significant consequences on what benefits, if any, you may be entitled to receive. We are with you every step of the way, representing your best interests and making sure you are being treated fairly. See our page on workers’ compensation for more information.

Helping You with All Your Legal Needs

Workers’ compensation is not the only benefit that may be available if you have been hurt on the job. For instance, if you have become disabled from working, then you may be entitled to receive disability benefits from social security. However, successfully pursuing a social security disability claim can be every bit as difficult as a workers’ compensation claim.

You may also be able to receive additional compensation when a third party is liable for your workplace injury. This can occur when an accident occurs on another person’s dangerous property or in an automobile or truck accident that occurs during the course of employment. Another example would be an accident caused by a vendor, supplier or other person present at the work site, or if a defective piece of equipment is the cause of your injury. Successfully pursuing a third party liability claim may require you to sue the responsible party in court, or negotiate a settlement with the negligent party’s insurance company.

Benefits such as social security disability or third party civil liability may be available in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you receive, but legal help in both situations is a critical factor to your success. At Rocha & Schmidt, we will help you to identify all the possible sources of compensation open to you, and if we cannot help directly in these areas, we will be able to refer you to a quality attorney who focuses in that area.
