Located in Yuba City, our firm routinely represents the interests of clients in this region who have been injured at work or by the negligence of others. We are here to help you navigate the complexities of the system.
If you have experienced an on-the-job injury or suffered from a work related illness, you will most likely have questions about your workers' compensation benefits and what you need to do. When you contact us, we will answer your questions and explain what is needed to secure your benefits.

The Law Office of Cogan & Hanrahan is dedicated to ensuring that you obtain the benefits you deserve. Our office is experienced in this area of law, and we will know the necessary steps to achieve a positive outcome.
In the cases where an appropriate settlement can't be reached, The Law Office of Cogan & Hanrahan can represent you in a Workers' Compensation hearing or trial before the judge. We assist with the investigation process by taking depositions of witnesses, request medical records and do research, fill out all required paperwork, and ensure that everything is submitted on time. During the trial we will explain to the judge why you should receive benefits, examine witnesses, and otherwise advocate on your behalf. If you're not satisfied by the result of your hearing we can help you appeal the decision.
The personal injury cases we typically represent include automobile accidents and uninsured motorists, wrongful death suits, serious burns, catastrophic injuries, slips and falls, and dog bites.
When evaluating how much a personal injury case is worth the answer will come down to figuring out what your injuries will cost you monetarily, physically, and mentally. An injury damage award will commonly include the cost of medical care already received and the expected cost of what will be needed in the future, and may also include:
- Loss of income since the injury and the loss of earning capacity in the future.
Property loss as a result of the accident.
Physical pain and serious discomfort.
Emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of day-to-day pursuits.
Loss of companionship or the inability to maintain a sexual relationship.
It is important to contact us if you have a personal injury claim. We provide personal counsel and attention to each case.
