Depending on the nature of your job, suffering an amputation can severely hinder your ability to earn a living. If you or a loved one has suffered an amputation injury while on the job, you should seek representation from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Without an expert advocate on your side, you may not be granted all the medical care and disability benefits to which you are entitled.
No other firm in Northern California represents as many clients in workers’ compensation cases as does Boxer & Gerson, LLP. We have long experience in cases ranging from the loss of limbs to the less severe amputation injuries of fingers and toes.
If you have suffered a work-related loss of an arm, leg, hand, foot, finger or toe, contact our firm.
Certain workplace injures, such as amputations, exempt the employee from the two-year cap on temporary disability benefits. This exemption means you are entitled to two-thirds of your weekly earnings (subject to statutory limits depending on the date of injury). Even the loss of a finger may be considered an amputation, exempting you from the two-year cap on temporary disability benefits.
Whatever the nature of your workplace injury, the attorneys at Boxer & Gerson, LLP will provide you with aggressive representation intended to help you obtain all of the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled under the law.
Boxer & Gerson, LLP has maintained close relationships with California labor unions since our founding in 1977. We continue to be strong advocates for union members and their families, and we work hard to protect the rights of injured workers in court, in the legislature, and in the public arena. For informed, committed and aggressive representation in your workers’ compensation case, look to Boxer & Gerson, LLP.
