Federal Workers' Compensation Attorneys Serving California

On-the-job injury and occupational illness claims for federal workers are administered by the federal Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP). Federal workers' compensation claims generally pay three types of benefits:

  • Free medical care and prescription drugs until you recover
  • Wage loss benefits for as long as you are unable to work or can only work part time
  • A lump sum payment for permanent impairment

In addition, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation or disability retirement if you are unable to return to your old job. If you are having an issue with your benefits, you should consult a lawyer who understands the rules and requirements of the OWCP.

In addition to worker injury claims, our lawyers handle cases of discrimination and appeals to the Merit Systems Protection Board.
