Any incident resulting in fatalities and major injuries is a difficult time for families and friends of victims.  Often times, there is little, if any, information regarding the facts and circumstances of a catastrophic event.  It becomes frustrating for family and friends who need information.  When tragedy strikes, a compassionate and experienced attorney can help families navigate through times that are emotionally and physically trying.

Worksite injuries caused by third party responsible actors present a number of avenues of recourse.  First and foremost, third party actors are responsible for the injuries and damages they have caused.  Furthermore, the California Workers’ Compensation system can provide an additional avenue of recourse against the employer for damages caused at the worksite.  However, often times the civil action against responsible third parties can conflict with the administrative process of Workers’ Comp-especially when it relates to the issues of liability and damages.  It is essential to have an experiened attorney who understands both the Workers’ Comp system and tort liability in order to provide a comprehensive legal strategy.  The attorneys and staff at Kalfayan Merjanian understand the web of issues inherent to multiple avenues of recourse and can navigate clients to the best possible recovery.
