He personally oversees every case he takes on, and he works directly with his clients to ensure they are constantly aware of where they stand in their claim.
Tom is in the courtroom virtually everyday fighting for his clients and is very familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to avoid providing the medical treatment and disability benefits to injured workers. Tom has a winning track record in breaking through insurance company obstruction.

It’s A Complex System
No one expects to suffer an injury while working, but when it does happen, securing quality medical treatment and wage replacement benefits quickly is essential. Unfortunately, the California workers’ compensation system has become a complicated maze of rules and restrictions that employers, insurance companies, and their army of attorneys use to their advantage. Unfortunately, the injured worker is often left to navigate the system alone, with many of their medical symptoms ignored, and worried about how their wages will be covered. Our firm recognizes these challenges, and is dedicated to guiding you through the process.
Mr. Martin has represented thousands of employees injured on the job, whether by a specific event, or due to the cumulative effects of a job over time. Mr. Martin is personally involved in every aspect of your case, including evaluation, assembly of evidence, and all court appearances.
Tom Martin is also a sought after speaker in the workers compensation community, frequently lecturing about the latest laws and trends in the workers compensation system.
