Fighting Hard For You! Real Client Testimonial
"I really can't express how great of an attorney Mr. Fisher is. From day one, I felt like they were there for me and fought hard for my case. I called them one day and the next day they were able to get me in. I met with Mr. Fisher on the day of my consultation (free). I was not passed from one person to the other. The staff was super professional and friendly. They were in contact with me throughout my case, reminding me of appointments and important meetings. I've heard of horrible experiences of people with other attorneys and all I can say is that I was truly blessed." Karen Mavrikis

Workers' Comp Claims vs. Personal Injury Lawsuits What's the Difference?
Workers' Compensation & Personal Injury A Closer Look
Insurance & Workers' Compensation
California law requires every business to provide some form of workers' compensation insurance in the event that an employee is injured or becomes ill as a result of their work. While limits are set on how long workers' compensation benefits may last, every employee should expect to receive them in full.
Personal Injury & Workers' Compensation
Filing a workers' compensation claim normally prevents employees from pursuing a personal injury suit against an employer. However, if a claim overlaps with a workplace injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the employer, clients will need help from an attorney to navigate the resulting legal complexities.
If you are unsure whether your injury warrants workers' compensation or a personal injury suit, contact the law offices of attorney Gilbert Fisher today. Mr. Fisher can look at your case and give you the best advice on how to proceed.
Steps for Injured Workers And How Gilbert Fisher Can Help
So you have sustained a work-related injury. What happens next?
Having a workers' compensation lawyer guide you through the proceedings can help ensure everything is carried out in a timely fashion.
Remember, you have nothing to lose by seeking a no-charge, no-obligation consultation with attorney Gilbert Fisher in Fresno or Salinas, CA.
The Workers' Compensation System in California
California has a no-fault system for workers' insurance compensation. This system protects both the employer and the employee. Employees cannot sue their employer for a personal injury, but injured employees do not need to prove that their employer was at fault in order to receive compensation for a work-related injury.
In most cases, injured workers cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer because of California's no-fault system. If you're not sure what legal action to take, Mr. Fisher can review your case for free and recommend the legal direction that will yield the best results.
When it comes to filing a workers' compensation claim, the sooner you act, the better. A workplace injury needs to be reported to your employer within 30 days. Once your employer is notified, they must give you your claim within one working day.
