Suzanne is a top workers compensation lawyer, and has personally handled traumatic brain injury, coma, spinal injury cases, and permanent disability cases involves first responders, jockeys, racetrack employees, and factory employees.
Such injuries have been life changing and have caused these individuals to be unable to work for the rest of their lives. Suzanne has fought hard and prevailed in obtaining life pensions, as well as 24 hour caregivers and private nurses to assist these individuals. In many cases, Suzanne is completely hands on with these cases, attending doctor’s appointments and even making hospital visits to the injured workers.
This hands on treatment enables Suzanne to understand fully the complex medical issues and be able to interface with private physicians and other health care workers to ensure that the injured worker is provided with the best medical care possible in order to alleviate the effects of their industrial injuries.
Suzanne is committed to protecting the lives and safety of first responders who are injured in the line of duty, including injuries sustained during marches or protests.
Suzanne understands and appreciates that there are many good first responders who are wrongfully accused of brutality just because there are some who commit atrocities. This tarnishes a department and increases the potential likelihood that first responders will be injured in the future.
Suzanne will aggressively fight to obtain the best medical care for any first responders injured in such circumstances, and to ensure that they receive the best medical care possible to work to return them to duty if that is at all possible. If an officer suffers a career ending injury, Suzanne will be by his/her side and that of the family to ensure that the officer is protected financially and medically. Good law enforcement officers should not suffer due to the wrongful actions of some.
Suzanne has built a solid reputation representing police officers who have been traumatically injured by criminal defendants. Suzanne has firsthand experience with these types of cases as she was assaulted by a criminal defendant in court while she was a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney. Suzanne sustained a concussion and orthopedic injuries, but thankfully, was able to return to work.
Suzanne was frustrated by the worker’s compensation system that delayed her treatment and did not fully address her injuries. This personal experience gives her unique insight into these cases as a first hand participant in a worker’s compensation system that is fraught with delays and unfair treatment for the workers. Suzanne understands workplace retaliation and will fight to protect your job. Out of the worst experiences can come more strength of character, and she has what it takes to fight for you against any insurance company or self-insured entity.
