Attorney Kristy Hunter handles workers' compensation cases across three counties in Southern California: Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange.
She handles workers' compensation matters from the filing of the Applications for Adjudication to the ultimate resolution of the claim by settlement or trial, including issues like AOE/COE, liens, threshold issues, mandatory settlement conferences, expedited trials on issues of medical treatment and temporary disability, and trials of cases-in-chief to submission for decision. Families who have lost loved ones due to a work injury or illness can also count on Ms. Hunter to help them recover death benefits, which can help cover burial expenses and replace income lost due to a worker's death.
Because workers' compensation cases can be complex and are typically deadline driven, oversights and delays can have costly consequences. It would be a good idea for anyone dealing with a workers' compensation matter to consider hiring an attorney. Using the most advanced processes and technology, Ms. Hunter is able to serve her clients accurately and efficiently. Every case is unique, and no attorney can guarantee results, but Ms. Hunter will work tirelessly to advocate for the rights of workers during some of the most difficult times in their lives and will fight for the outcome you deserve.
Ms. Hunter also advises people who have been subjected to unfair treatment in the workplace and/or denied just wages in violation of California or federal law. She works with attorneys who are experienced experts in wage and hour disputes, personal injury tort claims, labor and employment law matters, and disability law claims such as Social Security Disability Insurance benefit appeals.
Ms. Hunter grew up in Las Vegas, NV, but has since made California her home. She is a member of the State Bar of California and the California Lawyers Association Workers' Compensation Section.
