Hodson & Mullin’s Workers’ Compensation

Hodson & Mullin’s Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability practice areas are overseen by founding partner, Samuel C. Mullin III, CWCS.  Mr. Mullin is Certified a Workers Compensation Specialist by the State Bar Board of Legal Specialization and has repeatedly been named a Northern California “Super Lawyer.”  In years past, Mr. Mullin served as Assistant Suisun City Attorney, as a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Air Force, and he is a retired U.S. Air Force Reserve Judge Advocate colonel.

Social Security Disability and California Workers’ Compensation laws are very complex and easily confusing, and frequent changes in the law can make navigating through the claims processes even more difficult.  At Hodson & Mullin, our clients are informed of their legal rights regardless of whether they have suffered an industrial injury in California, are seeking disability benefits through the Social Security Administration, or both.

While adjusters work for insurance companies, Hodson & Mullin works for you! – our injured and disabled clients.  We ensure you know the rights and benefits applicable to your case, such as medical treatment for job-related injuries or illnesses, physical therapy, lifetime medical care options, vocational rehabilitation, temporary and permanent disability payments, death benefits and settlements, depending on the extent of the injury and other factors.

Make no mistake – the Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability processes can be agonizingly slow, as can the course of medical treatment.  Hodson & Mullin’s attorneys and staff advocate zealously on each clients’ behalf with Workers’ Compensation insurance carriers, and if necessary, before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.  In some cases, Hodson & Mullin also pursue personal injury or other third party cases on behalf of injured Workers’ Compensation clients.  We have a track record of integrity in helping our clients get the best settlement they are able to under the law.  Hodson & Mullin is Solano County’s largest and busiest Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability firm.  Our attorneys and staff have the knowledge and expertise to handle even the most severe cases toward successful resolution.

Hodson & Mullin has been a trusted presence in Solano County for more than a quarter century.  Our firm prides itself on its commitment to staying abreast of recent changes and current developments in the law through extensive continuing legal education, to ensure every client has excellent, highly capable representation.  Most of our Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability staff members are Spanish-speaking, and most of our business is the result of referrals from former clients.  Put our experience to work for you.
