Monterey County Workplace Injury Attorney

Representing Injured Workers Across California’s Central Coast

Have you been injured at work? If a third party (someone other than your employer or another employee) was at fault, or gross negligence was involved, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against this person or entity. As a Monterey County workplace accident lawyer with over 40 years of experience, Robert (Bob) Rosenthal and our team at JRG Attorneys at Law can help.

Who We Represent

While JRG does not provide workers’ compensation legal advice, we do represent those injured in the workplace due to the acts or negligence of others. Workers’ compensation only provides an injured employee with certain benefits and does not address the rights of the injured employee against third persons responsible for the injury. For example, if your employment requires you to drive a vehicle for work and you are rear-ended by another vehicle, you would have BOTH a workers’ compensation claim and a third party claim against the owner and/or driver of the vehicle that struck your car from the rear.

Cases like this are complex and require personal injury expertise not often available with a workers’ compensation attorney alone. If needed, we will coordinate our efforts with any workers’ compensation attorney and we can and will find you an attorney experienced in workers compensation to work in conjunction with our firm in your total representation.

Third Party Liability for Workplace Accidents & Injuries

If a third party was responsible for your accident or injury, Monterey County work injury attorney Bob Rosenthal and our team are prepared to help. We can take on cases involving:

  • Construction site accidents

Occupational Exposure to Toxins

If you inhale toxic fumes, are exposed to toxic chemicals, or suffer any injury due to your exposure to chemicals, gas, asbestos, mold, or other substance in the environment, you may have a claim against the company or entity responsible for the exposure or failure to adequately prevent or protect you or the public.

At JRG, our attorneys have represented both injured persons and defended persons or companies accused of liability for environmental injury. Our experience on both sides of this type of claim provides a wealth of insight and allows our firm to provide the best representation possible in a third party claim outside of workers' comp. We have handled toxic gas exposure, asbestos exposure, and mold exposure cases representing plaintiffs and defendants in this complex area of litigation.
