Trusted Workers’ Compensation, Injury & Disability Attorneys in Visalia, California
At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, our Visalia workers’ compensation, injury, and disability lawyers have protected the rights of California workers since 1956. This is increasingly important for workers in Tulare County, as the economy is driven by agriculture, livestock, and distribution and manufacturing facilities, with the latter comprising the fastest-growing portion of the area’s employer base.
While these important industries provide exceptional earning potential for California employees, they are also some of the most dangerous workplaces in the state. We understand that when the city’s nearly 143,000 residents get hurt at work, it impacts their physical, emotional, and financial well-being. That is why we are here.

Who is Eligible for Workers’ Compensation Benefits in California?
In California, workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide financial assistance and medical care to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. Although that is how the system is created, it is fraught with challenges, including benefits delays and denials that leave injured workers overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next.
At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, our Visalia workers’ compensation lawyers know California requires all employers with at least one employee to provide workers’ compensation insurance. This means all employees, including part-time employees, can pursue workers’ compensation benefits when their injury or illness is work-related.
California workers’ compensation benefits include:
- Medical care.
- Temporary disability payments for lost wages.
- Permanent disability payments for permanent loss of function.
