Bernhard Baltaxe, partner in the workers compensation law practice of Smith & Baltaxe, spoke with Bill Fay, Editor-in-Chief of Workers Compensation Experts, about the what is unique in the practice of workers comp law in the Bay Area.
Baltaxe has represented injured workers in San Francisco for more than 20 years. He’s handled cases in nearly every industry in Bay Area, from union employees to service-related jobs in hotels and restaurants to those working in the technology field.
“The most important thing a workers compensation lawyer does for his client is determine how this injury is going to affect the worker’s earning capacity for the rest of his or her life,” Baltaxe said. “That’s not all the attorney does, but it should be right at the top of the list.”
Baltaxe shares insights on why injured employees need a workers comp attorney; what he does to gain the upper hand with their cases; and why it makes good financial sense to consult with a lawyer when you’ve been injured on the job site.
