Representing Injured People in Northern and Central California

Are you a seriously disabled worker or retiree in Northern California? Has our state’s legal system failed you, claim after claim? Are you to the point of considering a civil lawsuit to correct the situation?

The Concord-based workers’ compensation law firm of Elder and Berg has been an asset to people just like you for more than 35 years. Accomplished, client-focused attorneys Richard Elder and Mark Berg believe that you have the same right to your “day in court” that the big insurance companies always seem to receive. Our vast experience has served to frustrate those who would deny you, time after time.

In short, we pay serious attention to your serious injuries and illnesses, representing your interests before workers’ compensation and administrative law judges, in hearings, in court and with any necessary appeals.

We present the evidence in a way to support your version of the events that led to your work injury or illness. We then work to secure benefits for you, and as your condition stabilizes, we work hard to negotiate a favorable settlement for your claims. If you will be left with some permanent disability we can help work out the disability portion of your claim while keeping open the medical treatment portion.

Cases may be lost due to time limits. Contact us immediately from wherever you are in the East Bay or Northern California, if we can be of service with your job-related injury or illness legal needs. Call us toll-free at 800-242-COMP.
