Our vision for the future is that injured workers achieve appropriate treatment speedily, our clients costs are limited and all professionals working in this field are educated to the fullest extent.
Although The Nippur Tablet No. 3191 from ancient Sumeria provided monetary compensation for specific injury to workers, assumption of risk was often formalized at the beginning of an employee's tenure; many industries required contracts in which workers abdicated their right to sue for injury. These became known as the "worker's right to die," or "death contracts." .
The 1911 passage of Roseberry Act introduced the voluntary scheme, but it was the Workmen's Compensation, Insurance and Safety Act of 1913 (Boynton) that is the basis of California's leglislation. There have been significant changes, with new laws (SB863 replaced SB899, et al), creating the need for clear advice and the basis of our founding.
Since its founding in 2009, LMLA has grown exponentially whilst retaining its boutique service. We now have offices in the major cities of California, all located to serve our clients' offices and the DWC venues throughout the state.
Celebrating 10 years, we enter our second decade with a continued focus on service. When you use LMLA, you gain the benefit of a whole team backing your named attorneys. Our photo shows just some of our Southern California staff at a recent team event.
