The founder of and the managing partner at Hinden & Breslavsky, Barry Harris Hinden devotes the primary portion of his practice to assisting people who have been injured on the job or who have developed an occupational disease. Located in Los Angeles, he represents clients throughout the region, including Orange County and other parts of Southern California. Mr. Hinden has been admitted to practice before all California state courts since 1974.

California workplaces can often be hazardous, and yet even the most seemingly benign job sites such as offices can produce accidents and illnesses. Mr. Hinden has helped countless numbers of clients navigate what can be a confusing workers’ compensation benefits system, and he assists people who have been injured in falls or struck by falling objects as well as those who have developed carpal tunnel syndrome, mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos, bursitis, arthritis, or a loss of eyesight or hearing. At the outset, he works with them to ensure that the required claim contains all necessary information and that it is filed on a timely basis. In the event that it is disputed or denied, Mr. Hinden appears on their behalf at appeals hearings.

It is not unusual for a workplace accident to be the fault of a nonemployer third party, such as the manufacturer of a defective piece of machinery or any other equipment. In such cases, Mr. Hinden has often filed a separate personal injury lawsuit, as it could result in an award of damages that workers’ compensation doesn’t cover, such as pain and suffering. He has handled numerous nonworkplace-related injury claims as well, including those arising out of motor vehicle crashes. A graduate of Southwestern Law School, Mr. Hinden has written and lectured extensively on topics related to his practice areas.
