Sound Advice On Bay Area Work Injury Claims
With a practice balanced between personal injury litigation and California workers’ compensation claims, The Law Offices of Vincent J. Scotto, III, works to maximize the value of an injured employee’s financial recovery by collecting as much compensation as possible from as many sources as the facts and the law will allow.
In many cases, this means filing both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury lawsuit for the same workplace accident. If the facts won’t support a negligence claim for personal injury damages, our experience with the proof of permanent partial disability claims can go far toward protecting your financial security.
This experience protects the value of client claims across a wide range of work injury scenarios:
- Industrial accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Occupational illness or chronic injury claims
- Trucking industry accidents for drivers, freight handlers and warehouse workers
- Airline industry accident claims at any Bay Area airport
- Oil, gas or chemical refinery accidents
- Health care worker claims
- Personal injury litigation related to defective industrial equipment or machinery
- Death benefits and wrongful death claims for fatal work injuries
We offer free consultations in all injury cases, and we only recover an attorney’s fee if we recover benefits or damages for you on your claim.
