Understanding Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you experienced on-the-job injuries, you might have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim via the Oregon Workers’ Compensation Division. It’s possible to recover compensation for lost wages, medical costs, rehabilitation, vocational training, and more.

Individuals who choose this option need to have a doctor submit an accident report. There are also strict deadlines that must be adhered to. Even if you do everything right in this process, it is still possible that the workers’ compensation department will deny your claim or not pay you what you deserve.

Everett, WA, work injury attorneys know what a workplace injury is worth. We work for you to recover the full amount of compensation you deserve. We will also ensure that all filing deadlines are met, which means that’s one less thing that you have to worry or stress about.

Proving Negligence in Work Injury Cases

If you choose to sue your employer, it’s necessary to prove that a coworker or employer was the cause of your injuries due to intent or negligence. It’s necessary to prove four elements if you want to prove negligence in your case. These four elements include:

  • An employer or coworker owed the accident victim a duty of care to ensure no injuries occurred. An example would be that an employer must provide protective equipment that fits well and that is in good repair.
  • The coworker or employer failed in this duty. An example would be if an employer did not replace the tattered safety harness that is required to be worn.
  • The victim experienced damage because of the coworker or employer. An example would be if the visibly worn harness strap broke while relying on it for safety.
  • The victim’s injuries were caused by the workplace accident. An example would be if you suffered a TBI that would not have happened if your safety gear had been in good repair.

Our work injury attorneys will review the facts of your case and your medical records to ensure that your case meets these four elements. Usually, workplace injury cases will easily meet the negligence requirements; however, the connection may be tenuous. Even if you don’t know for sure that your employer is responsible or negligent, it’s a good idea to contact our team of workplace injury attorneys. We offer a free initial evaluation to discuss your situation.

Don’t Wait to Take Legal Action

Just like with any other state, Washington has time limits, called the statute of limitations, for you to take legal action against someone else after a personal injury. This includes workplace injuries. To file a workers’ compensation claim, it’s necessary to meet the strict deadlines in place, too. If you decide that you are going to file a lawsuit against your employer, you will have two years from the date of the incident to act.

Injured workers have up to 90 days to file their workers’ compensation notification for injuries and one year to file the claim. Do not hesitate to contact Strong Law after a workplace injury.  Our legal professionals understand the law and will ensure that you get the representation and compensation you deserve.

Common Causes of Workplace Accidents

Each industry has unique hazards. While it may seem unlikely, even those who work in an office can suffer a workplace accident. Some common examples of workplace accidents include:

  • Swinging equipment
  • Trip, slip, and fall incidents
  • Crush accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Accidents resulting from defective PPE
  • Defective handrails, stairs, or elevators
  • Falling from a height
  • Loose flooring
  • Electrical, radiation, cold, thermal, or chemical burns
  • Electrical accidents
  • Chemical spills
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Drop accidents
  • Factory press accidents
  • Light equipment and tool accidents.

This is just a short list of the types of accidents can happen on the job. Regardless of what causes your workplace injuries, it’s a good idea to seek medical attention and the advice of an attorney.

Common Injuries That Occur in Workplace Accidents

There are several types of injuries you may sustain when involved in a workplace accident, which include minor scratches. There are some industries, however, like forest management and construction, that rely on the use of large equipment.  They see more serious and catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Individuals working with chemicals, drivers, and factory workers may also sustain catastrophic injuries.

No matter how severe or minor your injuries may be, it’s a good idea to contact an Everett work injury lawyer for assistance in filing a workers’ compensation claim or a third-party lawsuit to protect your rights and make sure that you get the deserved amount of compensation.

"I would definitely recommend them."

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

Common Questions About Work Accidents in Everett

Will your workplace injury be covered by workers’ compensation benefits?

In most cases, the answer to this is yes; however, not all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Your attorney can let you know more details about this.

Will you be allowed to choose your own doctor?

You can select your own doctor. If you have a claim that is covered by a managed care organization, it’s required that you select a doctor from the organization. However, neither the workers’ compensation department nor your employer has the right to “assign” you to go to a specific doctor.

What are independent medical evaluations?

In some cases, a request will be made for an IME. This is when the insurance company wants a second opinion from a doctor that essentially “works” with them. It’s best to have an attorney to ensure you are treated fairly.

How to Recover Damages After Being Involved in a Workplace Accident

After you are injured in a workplace accident, it’s possible to recover economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the ones with a fixed value, while non-economic damages are intangible and more subjective. However, both are considered compensatory damages.

Examples of economic damages include lost wages, medical costs, loss of future earning capacity, costs related to a person’s death, and more. The medical expenses include any long-term or permanent professional care for a catastrophic injury or rehabilitative care, including psychological therapy, cognitive therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.

You can also receive non-economic damages, which include compensation for loss of consortium, loss of use, excessive scarring, disfigurement, amputation, loss of quality of life, and pain and suffering.

What Are Your Hours?

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
