Cross Over Cases in Oakland, CA

Seeking Multiple Forms of Compensation

Workers' compensation law protects the rights of workers who suffer a work-related injury or illness regardless of who is at fault. Personal injury law protects the right of every individual who suffers harm because of the negligence or carelessness of another person or company. In some cases, a person who suffers injury in an accident can qualify for more than one source of recovery. When an injury on the job is caused by the negligence of a third party, the worker can file a personal injury claim in addition to seeking workers' comp benefits.

These claims are called "cross-overs", and The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand has a special interest in these cases because of their invested knowledge in both workers' compensation and personal injury laws. The attorneys at the firm have gained extensive experience handling these cases and they will take the time to explain how one claim can have an impact on the other.

Oakland Injury Attorney - Experienced Legal Counsel

An Oakland workers' comp attorney at the firm can explain how your workers' compensation carrier will pay for benefits in a cross over case. Even though benefits are paid out similar to a normal workers' comp case, the workers' comp carrier has the right to file or claim a lien against your recovery from the third party. If you chose to seek compensation through a personal injury claim, Attorney Jonathan Brand will notify the workers' compensation carrier of the third party action on your behalf because failure to do so could subject you to liability for money due to the workers' comp carrier and result in your benefits being denied. Cross over cases can seem complicated and difficult to win, but Attorney Jonathan Brand and his exceptional legal team have the skill and experience to help you achieve a timely and favorable outcome for your case.
