Inside The Insurance Companies
Emery | Reddy’s Seattle L&I attorneys are comprised of former insurance defense lawyers. This allows us to use that knowledge, coupled with over two decades of experience, to help our clients get access to the L&I benefits to which they are legally entitled and hold employers accountable when they break the law.

Our approach is unique and it works. We take even the toughest cases, and our litigation team returns exceptional awards for our clients. We are committed to excellence in trial practice and injury representation.
Building A Case
The foundation of any successful injury representation in work injury law is built by gathering the right team of experts. Expert testimony is the cornerstone on which any good personal injury, construction injury, or third-party claim is built. We have assembled the best team of outside experts and injury attorneys in Washington State. It consists of accident reconstructionists, physicians, and economic loss experts. We work closely with this team to build a bulletproof case in anticipation of a trial.
Your L&I Claim Is Worth More If You Also Have An Employment Law Claim
A significant number of L&I workers’ compensation claims often involve additional legal claims such as employment law or third-party claims. Many people file their claims without seeking representation from an L&I attorney and thus never discover that in addition to their L&I claim, they may be missing out on the ability to file an employment law claim or a third-party claim. Pursuing additional legal action has the potential to significantly increase a claim’s overall compensation.
What Is An Employment Law Claim?
Many injured workers find that their employer has taken, or plans to take, adverse action against them because they filed an L&I claim or they are out of work. You can file a lawsuit against your employer for several reasons, including retaliation, wrongful termination, disability discrimination, or unpaid wages. An L&I attorney who is experienced in both L&I workers’ compensation law and employment law can help you with your L&I claim while simultaneously filing a federal or State law claim for the violation of workers’ rights by your employer.
What Is A Third-Party Claim?
A third-party claim is one in which someone other than your employer or co-worker is responsible for your injury. If you have been injured on the job due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be entitled to additional compensation through a third-party claim, which combines your L&I claim with a personal injury claim using the same facts.
Unlike workers’ compensation payments, there is no limit to the amount of compensation an injured worker may seek in third-party damages.
Who Is At Fault For A Workplace Injury?
L&I is a no-fault system, ensuring compensation for any workplace injury. However, if a third party is involved in causing the injury, you may be able to pursue legal action against them for additional compensation under third-party claims.
How Do I Know If I Have A Case?
The bottom line is that anyone who isn’t familiar with L&I claims should seek the input of experienced L&I attorneys who are.
