Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Seattle, Everett & Bellevue
At The Walthew Law Firm, our workers' comp attorneys understand the complex laws involved in workers' compensation cases. In 75-plus years of representing injured workers, we have helped shape those very laws. Our focus has always been to protect the rights of injured workers in greater Seattle and western Washington from Tacoma to Everett. We fight for our clients' benefits, whether they file a claim for a specific back or neck injury, for occupational exposure causing pulmonary conditions, or overuse injuries involving wrist, knees, or shoulders. We act quickly to maximize their compensation benefits and secure treatment for their injuries or work disabilities.
We review all aspects of an individual's claim to make certain the Department accepted all related conditions. We verify that time loss calculations are correct. For example, if you work more than one job at the time of an injury, the income from both jobs must be included in payment of time loss. Overtime, if worked regularly, must be included. Bonuses must be included. There are many variables to the calculation of wages that most people do not understand. If the Department or self-insured employer incorrectly calculates date of injury wages, time loss compensation could be underpaid for the life of the claim. This is just one reason to have your claim reviewed by a qualified workers' compensation lawyer.
For more than 75 years, our attorneys have provided aggressive and dedicated advocacy for clients who are out of work following an accident. Do you need proper workers' compensation benefits representation that is proactive, effective and focused on the important issues? Far too much is at stake to retain the services of less-experienced workers' compensation lawyers. Contact our Seattle or Everett law offices lawyers at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
Educating You About Your Workers' Compensation Legal Rights
One option available to you is the choice of your own doctor. Workers' compensation claims managers may suggest a physician of their choosing. However, you have the right to medical treatment from your own doctor as long as your doctor is part of the Department's Provider Network. While you attend doctor appointments and therapy sessions, or undergo needed surgery, we make sure you understand your rights and workers compensation coverage.
Providing a Personalized Approach
As seasoned workers's compensation benefits attorneys, we understand that there is no single best approach to a workers' comp claim. Some clients return to their jobs. Others simply cannot handle the duties they once performed and require vocational retraining. Tragically, many workers suffer permanent disability, limiting their ability to work or ending their professional careers. We treat each workers' compensation case with an individual personal approach because every situation is different.
Whether your work injuries entitle you to time loss compensation benefits while you recover or a lifetime pension if you cannot return to work, our lawyers can help.
