Protecting The Rights Of Prison Guards Throughout Southern California
Jail and prison guards risk their safety every day to keep dangerous people behind bars. Unfortunately, this comes with a great risk of physical injury.
At Lewis, Marenstein, Wicke, Sherwin & Lee, LLP, in Woodland Hills, we are not afraid to take on powerful entities like the state and federal prison systems if it means getting justice for our clients. Since 1971, we have protected the rights of the people who protect us, including corrections officers, jail guards, prison guards, security guards, wardens and many others.
Just a few of the prison injury cases we have handled include:
- Stab wounds
- Bite wounds
- Broken bones
- Sexual assault
- Traumatic brain injuries
If you are a prison guard or another public safety official who suffered a serious personal injury on the job, you may have the right to seek compensation through a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury lawsuit. Because you have put in so much effort to protect the public, let us have our turn to protect you.
Why Should I Hire A Prison Injuries Attorney?
Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to protect workers. However, the insurance company has only one goal in mind: To protect its own profits.
Even if you have a valid workers’ compensation claim, you may find yourself with a denial or with a much lower offer of benefits than you deserve. You may find your employer unhelpful, as it wants to downplay the severity of your injuries to protect its reputation.
It is time to get a team like ours on your side. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have a proven record of helping clients file successful claims and appeals – even when the odds seem against us.
