A Strategic, Dynamic Defense To Workers' Compensation Claims

Workers' compensation claims are simply part of doing business for employers in many industries. Every company wants its own workers' compensation claims to be resolved fairly and without undue delay. To achieve these objectives, it is critical to retain the services of skilled legal counsel.

We are the attorneys of Gray & Prouty. For more than four decades, we have established ourselves as one of the premier workers' compensation defense law firms in California. A substantial portion of our caseload involves representing self-insured employers, as well as employers facing 132a and serious and willful misconduct claims. Whether we are working directly with employers or with their insurers, we provide exceptional legal representation and attentive client service.

Tailoring Our Approach To Our Clients' Needs

Our lawyers understand what is at stake for any employer forced to defend itself against a workers' compensation claim or other legal action. Certain claims, such as 132a claims involving allegations of discrimination or retaliation, are not covered by workers' compensation insurance. Furthermore, any employer found liable on a serious and willful misconduct claim will be forced to pay damages directly to the employee.

In certain situations, the potential costs of litigation could exceed the value of the claim. An expedited settlement may be preferable to protracted litigation in these cases. Other times, particularly when an employer faces substantial liability not covered by insurance, a tenacious defense could be the best option. Our attorneys regularly represent clients before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) and through the appellate process as necessary.

We will carefully evaluate the factual and legal issues at the outset of your case to determine its strengths and potential weaknesses. We will then make recommendations as to your company's best course of action. We place a high priority on giving our clients the information they need to make educated decisions about their cases.
