of Gilbert E. Fisher

He was once a workers' comp attorney for insurance companies but prefers representing injured workers in and around Fresno and Salinas. Mr. Fisher's father passed away due to a workplace injury, which means he has experienced worker injuries and their financial and emotional impact.

Instead of working through proxies, you can expect to meet with Mr. Fisher face-to-face, have your phone calls returned quickly, and receive regular updates from a knowledgeable professional.

We Work on a Contingency-Fee Basis

This means you do not have to pay our comp attorney or any legal fees unless we can secure a favorable settlement or verdict in your workers' comp claim.

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."

Local Fresno Connections

Selecting a local workers' compensation attorney in the Fresno area will benefit your case. Big city law firms in Los Angeles and San Francisco lack Mr. Fisher's professional network of qualified medical examiners and other expert witnesses in the region. Mr. Fisher's connections may prove critical in your case. Additionally, a Fresno compensation attorney is familiar with the city's judges, improving your chances of a favorable resolution.

Receive Your Full Benefits

Even if your situation seems straightforward, it's never a good idea to go through the workers' compensation process alone. A lawyer who handles these cases every day knows how to help you access every available benefit after an injury. With a workers' compensation attorney on your side, your chances of maximizing your benefits are significantly better. 

Trustworthy Confidant

While it is great to have a strong support system in friends and family members, they are unable to provide the legal counsel of a workers' compensation attorney. Because we are legally bound to confidentiality, you can ask questions and freely discuss the matters of your case with Mr. Fisher and our team. Having dealt personally with the devastating effects of a workplace injury within his family, our compensation attorney will compassionately advocate for you in your time of need.

Workers' Comp Claims vs. Personal Injury Lawsuits What's the Difference?

Filing a personal injury lawsuit is different from the workers' compensation system. As a workers' comp lawyer for more than 20 years, attorney Gilbert E. Fisher can help you weigh your legal options and pursue the right course of action based on current injuries as well as temporary or permanent disability. Our law offices in Fresno and Salinas can discuss your workers' comp claim in greater detail during a free consultation.

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.
Having a workers' compensation lawyer guide you through the proceedings can help ensure everything is carried out in a timely fashion.

Medical Evaluation

If you have sustained a work-related injury, it is important to see a doctor. However, the presence of a work-related injury may not be immediately obvious. Injuries may develop over time due to stress or repetitive strain. Seek medical attention as soon as you start to notice symptoms, even if you are unsure about the seriousness or cause of your condition. This is important not only to ensure proper treatment but also to acquire the proper documentation of injury to receive your workers' compensation benefits.

Know Your Rights

While there are some exceptions, most employees are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Nevertheless, the law is complicated, and insurance companies and employers can find reasons to deny a claim even if the case seems black and white. It is important to know your rights, and seeking counsel from a workers' compensation lawyer can be extremely useful. Gilbert Fisher knows the intricacies of the law and will offer advice and assistance as to the best course of action. 

Claims and Legal Action

Employees must meet certain deadlines in order to pursue a workers' compensation claim. Navigating this process can be stressful, especially when you are already dealing with a serious injury. Having a workers' compensation lawyer guide you through the proceedings can help ensure everything is carried out in a timely fashion and appropriate legal action is taken to get you the benefits you deserve.


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

Hiring a compensation attorney can ensure that you receive full benefits from your employer. Our attorney understands the California compensation law system and can navigate through confusing legal jargon with you. Take the following into account when filing a comp claim:

No-Fault System

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.

No Lawsuits

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.

Timing Matters

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.

Respectful, Professional Representation

"I totally recommend Mr. Fisher, he is efficient, professional, and competent. His fees are more than reasonable. Attorney Gilbert Fisher’s staff are on top of it. Everyone treated me with professionalism, respect, and were prompt with all required paperwork. I was kept informed of every action and procedure that was taken. Mr. Fisher was upfront and straight with me about my case. Every time I met with Mr. Fisher or his staff I felt a personal touch. I am more than satisfied with my settlement." Lou Salazar
