Third Party Cases
Dear Workers’ Comp Attorneys,
At Booth & Koskoff, we have decades of experience handling the most difficult 3rd party cases involving catastrophic injuries and death. We have repeatedly success finding 3rd party liability where other lawyers have not. We have achieved over 80 seven and eight figure verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.
Our firm has worked with applicant’s attorneys across California, and we understand the unique issues involved when an injured worker pursues a workers’ comp claim and a 3rd party case simultaneously. We are always mindful of protecting our client’s workers’ comp benefits and resolving any and all credit issues.
Our partnership with applicant’s attorneys have resulted in millions of dollars in compensation for injured workers and very substantial referral fees.
Together we can obtain real justice for injured workers in California.
