Injured Workers Can Face Significant Legal Challenges

It is not uncommon for workers to run into difficulties when seeking compensation for a work injury. The workers' compensation system in California is very complex and can sometimes feel stacked against workers. Employers and insurers can be very resistant toward giving injured employees the benefits they are entitled to. Also, long delays are commonplace in workers' comp cases.

In the face of such difficulties, you need a skilled lawyer in your corner to help you fight for your workers' comp rights. Our firm, the Law Office of Dennis J. Thornton, helps individuals who were hurt on the job with pursuing workers' compensation claims. We handle cases in Hayward, Contra Costa County, Alameda County and the surrounding area.
