What We Do at Buzzell Law Group, PC
Our team represents individuals in two primary areas: workers’ compensation and employment law.
Our attorneys, offering workers’ compensation services, are devoted to employees who were injured or became sick on the job.
Having three former insurance defense attorneys, the Buzzell Law Group, PC has a unique understanding of the tactics used by employers and their attorneys in labor disputes, and relies on that experience to benefit employees, applicants and plaintiffs.
Our team is more than familiar with the erosion of workers’ rights in California over the past two decades, and we help advocate for our clients so that they can secure the compensation they need for:
- Medical costs
- Hospital stays
- Rehabilitation and vocational therapies
- Prescription drugs
- Doctor’s visits
- Specialists and therapists
- Lost wages
- Home “Attendant” Care
- Home modifications to accommodate disabilities
- For Penalties associated with unreasonable delays by carriers
In many cases we handle, our team secures higher compensation for our clients because we look beyond the California Workers’ Compensation system. We know that the system limits how much compensation you can receive for your work-related injury or illness. When you have been severely injured or suffer a debilitating disease, you need to be made whole again. Therefore, we seek alternatives and additions like Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the Subsequent Injury Benefits Trust Fund (SIBTF), to see if there is a claim against your employer or a third-party for your industrial injuries.
By deploying multiple strategies, we help our clients walk away financially secure and having received the best possible medical care available under the current law.
In the employment and labor law area of our practice, our attorneys handle all matters involving employee rights under California state and federal law, and issues relating to terms and termination of employment, severance agreements, as well as wage and hour, harassment and discrimination claims.
Our attorneys have years of combined experience representing both sides of the aisle – employers and employees – and we offer unique insights into the complexities and nuances involved in employment and labor disputes.
We represent clients in all matters of employment-related issues, including:
- Wages and overtime disputes
- Medical leave
- Wrongful termination
- Severance disagreements
- Migrant workers’ rights
We deploy our extensive knowledge of federal and state laws, including:
- California Fair Employment and Housing Act – a anti-discrimination statute passed by the state that affects how employers select, promote, and pay their workers
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Equal Pay Act
- Rehabilitation Act
We know that discrimination and workplace harassment claims are highly complex and often very emotional. These claims are never a straightforward process and often involve swinging between state and federal statutes and regulations. Our attorneys have vast knowledge in this specific area of the law, and we represent employees and employers in disputes involving these matters.
