Mr. Pancer specializes in representing clients who have been wronged by their employers or injured in vehicle collisions, falls and other accidents. He provides aggressive representation to clients who have been harmed by another person’s negligence, standing up to insurance companies and holding them accountable for their actions and the actions of their insureds. Insurance companies have hordes of lawyers, loads of money, and zero sympathy or interest in taking care of people who have been injured in accidents. That is why it is imperative to obtain effective representation after suffering an injury that is someone else’s fault.
The State of California imposes strict requirements on employers. For example, employers must pay wages timely, compensate employees for overtime, provide meal and rest breaks, furnish their employees with accurate wage statements, and reimburse them for their expenses. When employers violate any of the numerous requirements they must comply with, Mr. Pancer evens the playing field, using his experience and aptitude to maximize his clients’ financial recovery.
