David Holzman and John Sprague make up the firm of Hourigan, Holzman & Sprague. With 30 years experience practicing workers? compensation law on the Central Coast, the firm stands ready to maximize the benefits injured workers are entitled to under the workers? compensation system. Injured workers need competent representation in their cases. Our priority is to protect the rights of injured workers in California and obtain the maximum benefits provided by law. Each case we handle is individually tailored to meet the needs of that client with emphasis on their own life situation. We will ensure that your benefits and final settlement are calculated properly, and help you protect your rights to appropriate medical care under the law. Our experience and reputation have enabled our firm to successfully secure medical care and monetary benefits in thousands of workers? compensation cases, as well as awards of 100% permanent disability with future medical care. As skilled workers? compensation attorneys, we understand what it is like to suffer from a work injury, and we have the experience and knowledge to guide you through the process while protecting your legal rights. Hourigan, Holzman & Sprague also handles administrative hearings for individuals previously denied Social Security Disability benefits at the initial determination and reconsideration stages. If you are denied benefits, you have a right to appeal. We can help file your appeal, get you a hearing, and develop the evidence to present at the hearing. Our representation is on a contingency basis, which means that if you do not win your case, you will not have to pay a fee. We are often successful in reversing prior denials of benefits by representing our clients in hearings before Administrative Law Judges of the Social Security Administration?s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). We handle hearings at the Santa Barbara ODAR office. If you are on workers? compensation and are receiving some type of disability benefits, you may also be able to collect Social Security Disability.
