"If it wasn't for Pacific Worker's Compensation I would have been completely lost. My employer was totally ignoring me (really dude? After 4 yrs??) the insurance company was denying all my treatment and stalling my benefit payments but then they came on board and turned everything around! There is so much that the insurance companies will let go over your head, like deadlines and things you are allowed to appeal but Pacific Worker's Compensation had my back and I didn't have to worry about none of that.

"I haven't dealt with an attorney ever until I came here. I've wanted to give up on my job but my attorney always guides me to the right path and pushes me to be patient, keep calm. It feels nice to have someone fighting for your rights but also keeping you in check for your own good." - Jazzie D., Daly City, Yelp
