We represent independent contractors hurt at work

Workers' compensation is available to most full-time employees in California, but it may not be available to every work.

Many San Diego businesses regularly use independent contractors to help them carry on their operations. In most cases, this is understandable enough. After all, no one is going to hire a person to wash the windows full time or, for many businesses, even clean the office.
