About Us

The law office of Fensten and Gelber is a workers' rights law firm located in Los Angeles, California specializing in California workers' compensation law on behalf of injured workers.  Bruce Gelber is a specialist in workers' compensation, certified by the California Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California.

For over thirty years, Bruce Gelber has guided his clients through the workers compensation process. Gelber has litigated employment and disability cases before the WCAB, the federal and state trial courts, and the state and federal appellate courts. In 1986 Gelber argued Perry v. Thomas before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Gelber stays abreast of the laws to continue to level the playing field for his clients. There were many changes and updates to the workers compensation laws in 2013.

We advocate for injured workers with specific on-the-job injuries, complex and cumulative injuries. Some work injuries can be traced to a specific and sudden event such as a broken arm caused by a fall from a ladder. Other injuries are cumulative injuries which occur over time, such as back trouble caused by repetitive lifting or occupational disease from repeated exposure to dangerous chemicals on the job. These type of injuries can qualify an injured employee for workers' compensation benefits. We work to get you the medical care and workers' compensation benefits you deserve.

We advocate for injured workers from all employment areas:

  • Office Workers
  • Municipal employees - Police and Firefighters
  • Construction Workers
  • Union Members
  • Nurses and Health Care Personnel
  • Warehouse Workers
  • Commercial Drivers
  • Service Workers

    We work on cases involving combined workers' compensation and third-party claims. In some cases, a party not covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance was partially or completely to blame for the injury. We work with personal injury lawyers for claims against non-employer third parties who may have been at fault for your injury. Gelber has extensive experience with lien, credit and Witt v. Jackson issues; including two significant cases, So Cal Edison v. WCAB (Tate) 58 Cal.App.4th 766 and Mares v. WCAB 60 CCC 1045.

    Personal, attentive service.  Each client is unique. We understand that being unable to work because of a workplace injury and fighting to get the compensation you deserve is a difficult situation. Claims adjusters and insurance company's representatives can treat an injured employee in a manner that feels disrespectful. From the initial consultation and throughout your case we treat you with respect and  understanding.

    You need an experienced workers compensation attorney to advocate for you so you get the benefits you deserve.
