Oakland Workplace Accident Lawyers

When you enter your workplace each day, you have the right to expect that certain protective measures have been put in place to keep you from harm. Whether you work in the construction industry, the maritime industry, a commercial or office setting you should feel safe from a work-related injury. This is, however, not always the case. The workplace can be very dangerous and injuries can occur in an instant or over time through cumulative trauma or occupational exposures. A lawyer is often necessary to help you get the benefits you deserve through a workers' compensation case.

A Certified Workers' Compensation Specialists For Your California Workers' Comp Claim

While a workplace accident triggers a workers' compensation claim at a minimum, sometimes other remedies are available and it is important to consult an attorney who is knowledgeable about all injury remedies. While a workers' compensation claim may provide various benefits, including medical treatment, temporary disability benefits and permanent disability benefits, not every work injury is limited to the workers' compensation system. An experienced lawyer can take a look at your situation and may discover other options for you. At Butler Viadro, LLP, the attorneys can often detect a "third party" (i.e., someone other than a co-employee of the employer) that caused the injury. Where an injury is actually caused by some other actor — a contractor, subcontractor, maintenance company, product manufacturer or property owner — we may be able to file a third-party claim (i.e., personal injury lawsuit) and seek recovery for all of your damages such as your wage loss, pain and suffering, medical expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Regardless of how the work injury occurred, Butler Viadro, LLP, will look at the facts and laws that apply, helping you achieve the best possible results through legal action.
