If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, you will be facing many challenges such as: dealing with the insurance companies, doctors and hospitals, missing work, loss of income, vehicle repair, mounds of paperwork – and trying to get a fair settlement. This is where expert personal injury lawyers can be of enormous help.
I can help you recover expenses, replace income, and make sure that your losses, suffering, property damage and your injuries are taken care of. This means that you can focus on your recovery. Many times it is important to make sure that the settlement includes sufficient funds to provide for long-term or even life-long care, which may be required in a disabling injury.
When employees are subjected to Labor Code violations such as failure to pay overtime, being mischaracterized by employers as “managers” to avoid paying overtime, the failure of employers to provide required lunch and rest breaks, or not receiving timely payment of agreed upon wages, this is against the law.
If your employer fires you, it isn’t necessarily discrimination. The employer must be discriminating on the basis of a “protected category” for the discrimination to be illegal. There are several state and federal laws prohibiting job discrimination.
If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer or employment agency when applying for a job or while on the job because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age or disability, or believe that you have been discriminated against because of opposing a prohibited practice or participating in an equal employment opportunity matter, you may file a charge of discrimination with the Fair Employment and Housing Authority and/or the EEOC. We will assist you in this regard.
