Aggressive Representation in Personal Injury/Workers' Comp Litigation

We provide comprehensive counsel in serious injury and death claims, focusing our representation on construction site accidents.

We handle a broad range of injury claims including:

  • Injuries sustained in crane accidents, broken or defective ladders or scaffolding, collapse of buildings, gas and electrical explosions
  • Injuries caused by automobile/big rig accidents
  • Injuries involving dangerous or defective equipment, machinery or tools
  • Injuries related to improper, poor or negligent training, hiring or supervision
  • Brain injuries, closed head trauma, psychiatric claims
  • Spinal surgery, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, TBI, RSD, crush injuries
  • Amputations, death claims
  • Many of the accident claims we handle involve California's levy roads, where there are minimal medians or shoulders.

Governor Jerry Brown recently signed SB 863 which will affect all workers' compensation benefits beginning in 2013. Injured workers must protect their rights under the new law. To level the playing field against insurance carriers and their defense firms you must have aggressive and experienced representation from lawyers who fully understand both sides of your dispute as well as the new laws. If you have suffered personal injury, workers' compensation disability, or are fighting foreclosure because of your injuries, Goforth & Lucas will fight to protect your legal interests and obtain the best possible economic recovery.
