Mr. Savin’s primary focus is in complex Personal Injury cases with cross-over Workers’ Compensation claims known as 3rd party claims. These are claims where people are injured and have multiple remedies – meaning they can pursue both Workers’ Compensation benefits as well as Personal Injury civil damages against another person or company known as the 3rd party.

Mr. Savin is a street fighter that big businesses and insurance companies should fear. His passion is his love of the court room and arguing for those clients who need a voice against the corporate giants. Mr. Savin fights for every inch, tooth and nail to recover the maximum for his clients who have been wronged by negligent individuals and companies.
In 2017 Mr. Savin had an incredible year fighting and advocating for his clients where he finished out the year with an incredible Los Angeles verdict for his client who suffered chronic back pain after a slip and fall and obtained a $7,200,000 verdict. This result was four times what they were offering his client. Mr. Savin then kicked off 2018 with a trial that started January 2, 2018 on a stairway accident causing multiple surgeries for his client and an insulting $75k offer on the table from the insurance carrier, and just days into the trial and by the end of week one he obtained a $5,000,000.00 settlement for his client. Mr. Savin loves what he does, he loves the fact that he can stand for his clients and not allow a corporate giant to dictate what someone’s pain and suffering is worth.
Mr. Savin is also a part of a small community of attorneys in Los Angeles and surrounding cities who handle Workers’ Compensation claims where the employer is illegally uninsured, typically referred to as UEF or Uninsured Employers Fund Cases. These UEF cases follow special rules and procedures and an inexperienced workers’ compensation attorney can delay your case for years if the proper procedures are not followed at the forefront. In addition, these UEF cases can sometimes open the employer to personal injury civil liability outside of workers’ compensation.
