Attorneys for Victims of Common Workplace Accidents throughout California, Nevada and the West

David Allen & Associates is a personal injury and Social Security Disability (SSD) law firm that has been helping California and Nevada residents recover financial compensation for workplace accidents for more than 42 years.

Options for Seeking Financial Compensation for Workplace Accidents

Victims of workplace accidents have a number of different avenues to seek compensation for their injuries. These include:
  • Worker's Compensation Insurance – California, Nevada, and most other states have laws that require employees to be covered by worker's compensation. With worker's comp, it does not matter how you got injured or who caused the accident — as long as you suffered your injury on the job, you are entitled to financial compensation.
  • Civil Litigation Against the Employer – If you were injured or contracted an illness at work, your employer may be responsible for your workplace injuries. While the general rule is that you cannot sue your employer when you are entitled to worker's compensation, there are various exceptions that provide opportunities to seek a financial recovery directly from your employer. This option is also available if your employer does not have worker's compensation insurance.
  • Civil Litigation Against Product Manufacturers and Other Companies – Even if you are entitled to worker’s compensation, you can still seek additional recovery against other parties that are responsible for your injuries. Product manufacturers, chemical manufacturers, automobile companies, and individual wrongdoers are all potential defendants in workplace injury litigation.
  • Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits – SSD benefits are available to individuals who are unable to work as a result of an illness or injury suffered on the job. In order to qualify, you must have a recognized disability, and you must have earned enough work credits over your working life. The lawyers at the Sacramento and Oakland law offices of David Allen & Associates have decades of experience representing clients in applying for SSD after being injured in a workplace accident.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – SSI is another benefits program run by the Social Security Administration. However, since it is funded by the federal government's general tax revenue (not Social Security tax revenue), you do not need to have paid into the system in order to qualify. If you are disabled as a result of your workplace injury, you may be entitled to SSI.
Except for SSI, which is a limited benefits program designed to cover basic living requirements, all of the other forms of compensation can cover your past medical bills, future medical expenses, and lost income. In civil litigation, you may also be able to recover for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and other non-economic damages. In some cases, you may even be able to recover punitive damages.
