You should also know that Jones Clifford is one of the few law firms in California that combines expertise in both personal injury law and workers compensation. If you have a workers compensation claim in conjunction with your personal injury case, it is always in your best interest to coordinate those cases within the same law firm. A settlement or judgment in your personal injury case can have negative consequences on your workers’ compensation case, and vice- versa. Very few law firms are qualified to coordinate both personal injury and workers compensation cases so that your recovery is maximized.
