If you’ve been injured on the job, we can help.
At The Walthew Law Firm, our attorneys understand the complexity of on-the-job injury claims. In 80-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 90 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 law office lawyers at 206-623-5311.
Your Legal Rights
Claims managers may suggest you see 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 your coverage.
