The workers’ compensation system was conceived as a way to provide medical and disability benefits to injured workers without regard to fault, while striving for fairness to employers. However, as the law and the system have evolved, employers and their insurance companies are often at a disadvantage and require assertive and strong legal representation to protect their interests.
The Law Firm of Friedman + Bartoumian defends all aspects of workers’ compensation claims, as well as discrimination claims under California Labor Code Section 132a and claims for serious and willful misconduct.
We provide our clients with estimates of exposure for the purpose of establishing reserves and allotting resources in a manner consistent with need. We make recommendations for the swift and successful resolution of claims via settlement whenever possible, and for the strong defense of cases when a trial is necessary.
Our highly reputable attorneys regularly make appearances at all Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) offices throughout the State of California. We are able to service all Boards through our offices in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Oakland, Sacramento, and Fresno.
