Christina Carrasco is a Senior Associate Attorney in the Southern California Workers’ Compensation office. Ms. Carrasco’s dedication to helping injured workers stems in part from her family history. In the late 1950s, her grandfather, a Los Angeles underground construction laborer, suffered a workplace accident when a trench cave collapsed leaving him buried alive. His sudden death left his thirteen children and wife vulnerable to the unfair negotiating tactics of the insurance carrier.

To this day, the challenges that her relatives overcame from that unfortunate experience continue to inspire Ms. Carrasco in channeling her talents into every workers’ compensation case. She firmly believes that no family should ever have to go through the complex workers’ compensation process alone. 

As a trial attorney, Ms. Carrasco has dedicated over seven years effectively advocating for clients who have suffered injuries on the job before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board in Northern and Southern California. Ms. Carrasco has extensive litigation experience in representing a wide variety of workers, including horse racing professionals, housekeepers, healthcare workers, law enforcement officers, construction workers, city, state, and county employees, and many others.

Two of her notable cases include:

  • RECANO V. J BRAND, INC., 2018 CAL. WRK. COMP. P.D. LEXIS 443 (PANEL DECISION)  Recano v. J Brand, Inc., (2019) Cal. Wrk. Comp. P.D. Lexis 443 (panel decision)
  • PAZ V. STATE OF CA (2021) ADJ4622929 (PANEL DECISION) Paz v. State of CA (2021) ADJ4622929 (panel decision)

After law school, Ms. Carrasco interned at the Human Rights Liaison Unit at United Nations Refugee Agency in Geneva, Switzerland where she drafted policy recommendations aimed at improving the living conditions of immigrants and victims of human trafficking for State delegates.
