Fighting to Secure the Benefits You Deserve
Workers' Compensation benefits provide you with time-loss compensation if your work-related injuries prevent you from performing your job; loss of earning benefits if you return to lighter duty work making less money; a permanent partial disability award based on your injuries or conditions related to your claim; and permanent total disability (pension) if you are never able to return to work.
At The Walthew Law Firm, we remain at the side of hard-working Western Washington residents injured in work-related accidents or disabled from occupational diseases from exposures at work, such as lung conditions related to asbestos exposure or overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel or shoulder or knee conditions. We fight to maximize their compensation and secure treatment for their injuries or work disabilities.
For over 70 years, our attorneys have provided aggressive and dedicated advocacy for our clients who are out of work following an accident. They need representation that is proactive, efficient, and focused on the important issues. Far too much is at stake to retain the services of a lesser-experienced Workers' Compensation lawyer.

Educating You on Your Rights
One of the options 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. While you attend doctor appointments, therapy sessions, and undergo needed surgery, we get to work.
Providing a Personalized Approach
There are no cookie-cutter approaches to a Workers' Compensation claim. Some clients return to their job. 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.
Whether your injuries are such that you are entitled to time-loss benefits while you recover or a lifetime pension if you cannot return to work, we can help.
