At the Law Offices of John E. Hill, P.C., we are dedicated to protecting the rights of injured workers throughout Northern California. With decades of experience in Workers’ Compensation law, our dedicated injury attorneys help thousands of hurt employees and their families who need the benefits California Workers’ Compensation laws provide.

You might know that employers in California are required to provide Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage for their employees. But are you aware of the specific benefits you may be entitled to receive as an injured worker? Many people are unaware of their rights and eligibility for benefits until meeting with a Workers Compensation lawyer. At the Law Offices of John E. Hill, P.C., we work every day to help our clients obtain the full benefits they deserve under California law, including:
If your employer didn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance, which is illegal in California, the personal injury team at the Hill Law Offices is ready to help you bring a claim against the company for the injuries you suffered. We’ll also work to obtain coverage from the Uninsured Employers’ Benefit Trust Fund. In addition, if you were injured by a third party while you were working, you might be able to bring a claim against the person who caused your injury and still seek workers’ compensation.
The Law Offices of John E. Hill, P.C. focuses on helping injured workers obtain the benefits they deserve. From our office in Oakland, we serve clients throughout Northern California in San Francisco, Berkeley, Fremont, Hayward and more. We handle most cases on contingency, so you owe nothing unless we win compensation for you. For your convenience, we maintain flexible office hours, and most members of our staff are fluent in Spanish.
