Workers' Compensation

When you have suffered an injury at work, you owe it to yourself and your family to get all the medical care and benefit payments you need to sustain you while you recover to the fullest possible extent. That often requires teaming with an experienced lawyer who can help you get what you deserve.

Boxer & Gerson, LLP is the largest workers’ compensation law firm representing injured workers in Northern California. We have the knowledge, experience and determination needed to successfully represent clients in all types of work accident and occupational disease claims, including cumulative injury claims, total disability claims and work-related death claims.

The Boxer & Gerson Difference

At Boxer & Gerson, LLP, we have long honed a unique set of skills and capabilities that provide every workers’ compensation client with distinct advantages throughout the legal process:

Medical knowledge—We understand complex injuries and cumulative injuries as well as other types of workplace injuries. Our goal in every case is to help our clients get the medical care and workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.

Comprehensive, one-stop representation—We are one of the few Northern California firms able to provide a comprehensive approach to injuries on the job, representing clients in workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability claims and injuries caused by third parties.

We are trial lawyers—Unlike some workers’ compensation firms, our attorneys are in court every week representing clients in civil cases involving third-party claims, acts of negligence and products liability.

Personal, attentive service—You will work directly with an experienced attorney, rather than your case being handed off to a legal assistant.

We do not give up—Our lawyers are noted for their tenacity, patience and determination. Nothing less is required to give you the representation you deserve.

No fee ever, unless and until you win — Boxer & Gerson, LLP takes cases only on a contingency basis. You will owe a fee only if we obtain a recovery in your case.

Knowledgeable Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Our attorneys’ experience in the workers’ compensation field is broad and deep. They have represented thousands of injured employees and lectured extensively over the years to major union groups, physicians, and statewide organizations. Many of them have been active with the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association (partner Michael Gerson is a past president, partner Bert Arnold is the current president), and several have become Judges Protem at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been voted “Super Lawyers” by their peers, and many of our workers’ compensation lawyers are certified specialists.

Attorney Julius Young received the “Top Blog of the Year 2009” award for his WorkersComp Zone blog. According to Lexis Nexis Workers’ Compensation Law Center, the blog provides “a steady stream of insightful commentary and analysis” on timely workers’ compensation issues.
