San Jose Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Representing Injured Workers' Across California

Workers' compensation is a very complex process. It involves substantial paperwork and can require a long, frustrating legal battle when benefits are limited or denied altogether. Many workers and their families simply don't have the time or resources to handle this by themselves. This is where our firm steps in.

The Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin is a firm dedicated to helping injured workers get the benefits they need to recover. Our work injury attorneys in San Jose have served injured workers throughout Northern California for more than 25 years.

Our workers' compensation team can assist with:

  • Workers' compensation application- If you need to file a workers' compensation claim, our staff will help you navigate where to begin this process and will walk through the necessary steps by your side.
  • Workers' compensation benefits- There are different types of workers' compensation benefits that are available after suffering a work injury. These benefits may include compensation for medical treatment, temporary or permanent disability, pensions and more.
  • Serious and willful misconduct- If your work injury was due to the direct result of an employer's failure to follow safety protocol, you may be eligible for compensation due to serious or willful misconduct.
  • Death benefits- After losing a loved one due to a work related accident, it is beneficial for you to hire a lawyer to deal with insurance broker matters. Our team will help your family receive compensation for the loss of your loved one while you are grieving during this difficult time.
  • Third party negligence claims- If someone other than your employer is responsible for your work-related injury, you may be eligible to file a claim and receive compensation for third-party negligence. This means that you can collect workers' compensation through your employer's insurance as well as the other party.
  • Appeals for denied workers' comp claims- A claim denial doesn't have to be the end of your injury claim. Our attorneys can support you in filing an appeal for your denied claim by defending your rights as an injured worker and standing up to the insurance company on your behalf.
  • Workers' comp hearings- Our attorneys will help you with the process of filing a claim, filling out paperwork, and representing you with any insurance companies or hearings that are necessary with your specific workers' compensation situation.

We have a team of experienced workers' comp attorneys in San Jose as well as the support of our efficient and friendly staff. We understand that people seek the help of a lawyer to make the process of getting workers' comp benefits easier, not more difficult.
