California is a "no fault" system intended to provide benefits to injured employees regardless of how the injury occurred or who was at fault. Workers' compensation is also known as work comp, workman's comp, workmen's comp, comp and even WC. When you are injured in the workplace, you may feel overwhelmed about how to obtain medical treatment, the possibility of job loss, lost wages, and the inability to support your family. Do not lose hope! You need an advocate who not only understands your situation but also has the experience to defend your rights on all fronts.
We represent injured workers in many different fields of work...
Private and public entities including construction workers, office workers, laborers and agriculture, City and County employees, Public and Private Schools, California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange County Sheriffs, State of California Prison Guards, Police Officers, Parole and Special Agents, Firefighters, to name just a few.
We have successfully represented thousands of public employees in their workers’ compensation claims, and assisted them in obtaining disability pensions. It is of utmost importance that you retain an attorney experienced in the different benefits available to public employees.

I retained the Law Offices of Thomas Hoegh to represent me regarding a stress and orthopedic injury claim under workmans comp. Although I was employed for 9 years, they denied my claim and fought hard to deny my benefits. The Law Offices of Thomas Hoegh fought back just as hard to obtain my benefits. At long last, my employer has accepted my injury and has agreed to provide me with workers’ compensation benefits.
The best thing I ever did was to hire the Law Offices of Thomas Hoegh for my workers comp case. After being represented by 3 prior attorneys with poor results, I retained Mr. Hoegh’s office to help me with my workers compensation claim. Within six months, we went to court and settled my case for 100% permanent disability with lifetime future medical treatment. Their amazing representation changed my life.
