From Proactive Counsel To Vigorous Defense In Workers’ Compensation
Slater & Associates is dedicated to providing quality, cost-effective workers’ compensation defense to insurance companies, self-insured employers and public agencies across Southern California. As a boutique law firm, their skilled team of attorneys and legal staff combines extensive resources and experience with a commitment to personalized, responsive service through every stage of the legal process. From proactive counsel to vigorous defense before the California Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, they provide insight, attention to detail, and advocacy that can secure favorable results and overturn adverse or inequitable rulings.
Communicative, creative and client-focused, Slater & Associates builds and executes legal strategies that are tailored to clients’ unique interests. In addition to their services which assist businesses in avoiding exposure and claim filing, they consistently prioritize minimizing litigation liability, costs and expenses. They also represent employers facing:
- Serious and willful misconduct claims: wherein an employee with a pending Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board case files for additional compensation from their employer, due to their employer’s alleged recognition of and failure to prevent likely, severe employee harm.
- Labor Code 132(a) claims: wherein an employee filing, or to file, for workers’ compensation alleges that their employer has discriminated against them due to their claim. The employer can be charged with a criminal misdemeanor and fined, and the employee’s workers’ compensation amount can be increased.
As trial-tested, adaptable litigators, the attorneys at Slater & Associates are also prepared to represent employers facing class action claims from multiple employees who are seeking compensation from the same injury-causing incident.
In all cases, they scrutinize the details of a claim, secure medical reports and depose doctors to evaluate the extent of a worker’s injuries, obtain nuisance value settlements, or appeal adverse rulings.
