From your first call to signing the dotted line on your settlement, you can always expect a call back with an updated status on your case within 24 hours. Our firm operates with the golden rule, treat others as you would want to be treated.

Decades Of Combined Experience

Combined, our workers’ compensation staff have over 5 decades of experience. If you are looking for a dedicated, experienced and aggressive Workers' Compensation Attorney in San Diego, you have come to the right place.

No Win No Fee – Guaranteed

We accept all cases on a contingency. What this means is you pay our firm nothing, unless we win your case. Your lawyer’s fees will be directly paid to you by the workers compensation system. So you will literally never have to write a check or come out of pocket for any expenses, ever.

Denied & Delayed Cases Accepted

Many workers’ compensation lawyers refuse to even speak with injured workers dealing with a denied or delayed case. Not our work injury lawyers. Anyone who has been denied or delayed will get a free initial consultation. One of our experienced workers' compensation attorneys in San Diego will take the time to hear your out and do everything possible to get your claim accepted.

Maximum Settlement Value For Your Case

Many workers compensation attorneys operate on volume and do not put the extra work to get you the best settlement possible. Our lawyers are dedicated at getting you the maximum settlement for your injury. Remember, if we don’t win, you don’t pay, so our focus is on winning your case at maximum value. Our workers' compensation attorney in San Diego will take your case to trial if needed. They will not settle for a dime less than you deserve.

Stress & Psychological Cases Accepted

Like denied and delayed cases, many workers compensation lawyers will not take a stress or psychological claim. There are many reasons for this, the main reason being the state system has reduced the amount of money you can recover for a stress or psychological injury. Our workers' compensation attorney in San Diego is about helping people, and people suffering with these types of injuries need medical attention as much as someone with a physical injury.

Satisfied Clients Are Our #1 Priority

I had a wonderful experience with workers' compensation attorney in San Diego, Thomas Debenedetto. They listened to my case & explained everything line by line. The firm always made sure they answered each and everyone of my questions and/or concerns. I never had to call the office for anything. The firm kept me up to date with each filing, motion and/or any paperwork that was sent out. I work with wonderful doctors. I felt very comfortable. I love how the firm always kept the lines of communication open at all times. Micheal, Monica, Jerome and Erin were so great to me. I can't thank them enough for all their hard work. I will definitely recommended them to anyone who needs a wonderful firm on their case. Thank you very much to you all.

Janea Anderson

Very competent people to deal with. Very happy with the way I was treated along the way to my final settlement. A heads up to anybody looking to get a lawyer. Just because you get a lawyer it is not going to make your injury better right away and you are still going to have to go through the steps of the system. I took my case on for two years before I retained this office, what I found most helpful by getting a workers compensation lawyer was the stress of having to deal with doctors who were not advocating for me and most of all having to deal with the insurance company all went away.

Nina Lupic

Came to this office with a workers compensation problem and was immediately treated with respect, compassion, and consideration. My attorney, Michael Yap, was amazing from day one. He was understanding, outgoing, very professional and aggressive when needed. He handled everything from the very first time we met. He and the entire firm treated me as if I was their only client and always made time for my questions and calls. Mr. Yap always returned calls and emails in 24 hour or less and reached out whenever there was any update in my case. I highly recommend Mr. Yap and this law firm to anybody looking for a workers compensation attorney.

Anthony Tredo

I was extremely happy with the representation I received through this firm. Just like anything else in life there are bumps in the road, but in the end I was very satisfied with my outcome and am very happy to refer friends and loved ones to this firm.

I worked with Thomas and his office to get my work comp case resolved. Don was the best to work with and I found my experience with the law firm to be pleasurable. My experience with the workers comp system was not. If you are looking for the best workers compensation attorney in san diego then this firm is for you.

Gerard Arcilla

I used Tom and his team in 2016 and I had a great experience with the staff. I was called about 6 weeks after signing up to schedule my Dr. appt. I called the office about 2 times with questions on my case and the office was very responsive and answered my questions. They are a busy office and for me thats great to hear since it means they are working and have a large client base. I was able to meet Mr. DeBenedetto when I came in to sign my documents to close & settle my case. He was very nice and went threw the documents with me and explained what everything meant. I was Happy with with my settlement and how fast the process was. I would recomend him and his team to anyone looking for a workers comp attorney.
