Former Seahawk Wins Appeal

"After years of playing in the NFL, I was left with debilitating pain and memory problems.  I faced opposition to my workers’ compensation claim at every step of the process, but Team Hochberg has been by my side through it all, helping me fight for compensation for the damage that football did to my mind and body."

"Bill, Lillian, and the entire team employ their knowledge and attention to detail to give you faith and hope in protecting your rights.  Their communication and commitment to the case and my family have given me comfort in what would be a stressful situation for anyone. No one ever plans to be in this situation, but know Bill Hochberg and his staff are there when it happens"!
 - Jerry Wunsch, former Seattle Seahawk

Client Testimonial From an Injured  Delivery Driver

“I spent a lifetime in labor-intensive jobs and worked for a major delivery company for the last 25 years. Just five years from my planned retirement, I injured my neck and shoulder after my employer forced me to work alone in a position now filled by two workers. Surgery to repair my injuries left me with debilitating pain and severe limitations in my arm."

"As a result, I could no longer work or enjoy the retirement activities I had spent my entire adult life planning for. Mr. Hochberg and his team made sure I got the additional treatment I needed, including mental health services, along with a full pension!  After some negotiation, Mr. Hochberg was even able to convince my employer to pay my litigation costs, which he told me employers are almost never willing to do."

"Eliminating the stress of fighting for the benefits I was entitled to has been a huge relief and a big help to my recovery.” – M.S.

Client Testimonial from an Injured Longshoreman

"As a longshoreman, I was injured when the locking pin on my truck chassis failed, throwing my cab in the air and collapsing my lower back. This type of accident is frequently fatal, but as I expected my claim was immediately denied."   "We all know you need an attorney immediately with this type of injury, so I contacted Bill. I feared we were facing an uphill battle fighting against the world’s largest container ship operator. I worried an attorney would look at my case and immediately give up, but throughout the process Bill was positive and reassuring. He didn’t just win a little, he won on all points of my case, and earned me a significant cash settlement as well as coverage for medical care I will need for the rest of my life."   "When my employer started harassing me at home – setting up cameras pointing in my bedroom window in an attempt to disprove my injury – Bill immediately demanded they cease and desist or face an injunction, and I got my privacy back."   "Immediately prior to the final judgment in my case, the attorneys for my employer followed Bill and me to lunch to propose a lowball settlement offer. Bill simply smiled and told me, 'No matter what, we’ll get more than that.' He is the best attorney I have ever dealt with, and years later I still recommend him to anyone I meet who faces a disability claim." -  GM
