Areas we serve:

We represent worker’s from all over Northern California, and have closed hundreds of cases in Butte County, Lassen County, Shasta County, Glenn County, Tehama County, Plumas County, Modoc County Siskiyou County, Colusa County, Trinity County, Sierra County, Yuba County and Nevada County.

 

At Watkins & Watkins the legal world of worker’s compensation is all we do.

We are intimately familiar with the California Labor Code, case law decisions, nuances of time limits, presumptions, and how they will impact your case. If you suffer injury or illness because of your employment, your employer is required by law to pay for workers’ compensation benefits. Under California law this can entitle you to several different classifications of benefits, including medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, employment retraining benefits, and death benefits.

Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, which means that there is no consideration of negligence on the part of the employer or employee in causing the injury. An employee injured on the job is entitled to prompt provision of appropriate benefits, and an employer is protected from independent civil liability and personal injury lawsuits.
