Workplace Injuries

Workplace Injury Lawyers Serving Santa Clara County, the San Francisco Bay Area and the State of California

When you are injured in a workplace accident, the economic consequences can be severe. Workers' compensation insurance can cover some of your damages, but in many cases it is not enough. When someone other than your employer shares liability for your accident, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. At the San Jose personal injury law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. , we are experienced in assisting clients with personal injury claims for workplace injuries. Our attorneys are dedicated to pursuing all areas of compensation for our clients.

Third Party Claims for Workplace Injuries in California

While workers' compensation laws prohibit injured workers from filing lawsuits against their employers (in most cases), those laws do not shield other negligent parties who may be culpable in your injury. For example, if you are injured in a construction accident while working as a subcontractor on a job, the general contractor for the project could be held liable for failing to maintain a safe work environment. Likewise, if you are injured or a loved one dies in a motor vehicle accident while on the job, the at-fault driver may share liability for your injuries. In some cases, there may be multiple negligent parties that can result in third party claims.

Our firm has successfully handled a wide variety of workplace injury claims including:

Full Compensation for Accidents in the Workplace

Our goal is to obtain the greatest possible compensation for your workplace injury. We will carefully go over the circumstances of your accident to identify all possible liable parties and discuss your legal options for compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits are typically far less than the damages we can help you recover in a successful personal injury lawsuit. This is particularly true if there are debilitating injuries that result in a long-term medical need and/or disability or if the accident resulted in a wrongful death.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
