Reimbursement For Workplace Injuries

It seems there are as many ways to get injured at work as there are jobs. If you have been injured at work, you've likely wondered how long you will be out of work and how you'll pay your bills. Washington law requires all employers to either self insure or participate in the state-run workers' compensation program (L&I) to ensure that eligible employees can receive benefits if they become injured or sick because of work conditions.

Depending upon who caused your workplace injury, you may also be able to recover damages directly from that person or company in addition to receiving your workers' compensation benefits. Our workers' compensation attorneys can advise and represent you in a direct personal injury action against the person or company that caused your workplace injury when allowed by law.

At Putnam Lieb Potvin, our workers' compensation attorneys can help you get all the benefits to which you are entitled under the law. With decades of experience helping workers in Olympia and the surrounding area pursue just compensation, we are dedicated to championing your case throughout the workers' compensation claim process.

Breaking Through Obstacles To Compensation

Going it alone in the workers' compensation process can be confusing and frustrating. Without an experienced legal advocate, it can be challenging to get the following types of benefits:

  • Medical treatment and medical mileage payment
  • Compensation for lost wages
  • Vocational retraining
  • Permanent disability or death benefits
  • Injury compensation

Although the Washington compensation system may appear comprehensive and user-friendly, it often looks for any excuse to lessen or deny benefits to injured workers across the state. At Putnam Lieb Potvin, we understand how to break through these barriers and help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
