Brant Bruner, Esq. is the Workers’ Compensation Department Chair and Senior Counsel at Nyman Turkish, PC, and is a California State Bar Certified Legal Specialist in Workers’ Compensation.  Mr. Bruner has spent his entire legal career fighting for the rights of injured workers and employees, and their families. 

Mr. Bruner has also been named to the prestigious Super Lawyers Rising Stars List, by Thomson Reuters, the last four years in a row – from 2020 thru 2023 – a distinction which he is particularly proud of, as the award is based on peer recognition, and is nominated and voted on by other practicing attorneys. 

As a staunch advocate for social justice and protecting the rights of those who need it most, Mr. Bruner zealously represents every single client with the same intensity and passion, and fights to ensure each one of his clients get ALL the benefits they are entitled to under the law, no matter whether an injury is major or minor, because he understands the significant impact and consequences that any sort of injury can have on the lives of injured workers and their families.  

Mr. Bruner has extensive litigation experience and has obtained countless six and seven figure settlements and awards at trial, including numerous 100% Permanent & Total Disability Awards, all of which were successfully upheld through appellate challenges, all the way up to the Supreme Court of California.  

Mr. Bruner represents injured workers from all occupations and walks of life, including, but not limited to: union employees, government employees, city council members, police officers, prison guards, security guards, teachers, airline employees, retail clerks, cashiers, nurses, medical assistants, truckers, drivers, energy sector employers, laborers, construction workers, chefs, cooks, waiters and waitresses, bartenders, service station attendants, warehouse workers, and more – and even represents adjusters and attorneys working for the insurance companies he litigates against on a daily basis!  Due to his extensive litigation experience, considerable knowledge of medicine and proficiency in medical issues, and intricate knowledge of the workers’ compensation law, can achieve maximum results for any kind of employee who is injured on the job in California. 

Mr. Bruner also works to stay educated and current on the state of the law, and the ever-changing legal landscape in California Workers’ Compensation, by regularly attending and participating in continuing legal education programs and staying abreast on the most current issues and recent changes in the law and medicine, through legal and medical research.  There are very few attorneys who truly understand the medical aspect of a claim as well as Mr. Bruner does, which gives him the crucial ability to utilize the medical evidence to maximize a claim’s value on any given injury or case.
