Seattle is a bustling city in the Pacific Northwest known for its technology industry, coffee culture, and stunning natural beauty. But despite the advantages of living and working in Seattle, workers are not immune to injury. Some of the most common occupations in Seattle include freight, stock, and material movers, maintenance and repair laborers, servers, nurses, wholesale and manufacturing workers, carpenters, and heavy truck drivers—all of which come with a high potential for injury.

In Seattle’s highly competitive and fast-paced work environment, having a knowledgeable and experienced L&I attorney in Seattle like Emery | Reddy, PLLC can make all the difference for workers who have been injured on the job.

Do You Have An L&I Claim?

If you’ve incurred a debilitating injury at work that has interfered with your ability to earn a living, you may be eligible for compensation through the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I). However, the L&I claims process can add unnecessary stress and confusion to your life and make it difficult to focus on your healing. At Emery | Reddy, we specialize in Seattle L&I workers’ compensation, personal injury, and employment law—and we’re here to handle the bureaucratic aspect of the process and advocate on your behalf so you can get the compensation you need to heal without the added stress and headache.

How Do I Know If I Have A Labor & Industries Case?

If you have an L&I claim or wonder if you have an injury case, ask yourself the following:

  • Have you been denied the medical care benefits to which you are legally entitled?
  • Has L&I asked you to undergo an Independent Medical Exam (IME)?
  • Do you have questions about the L&I claim process that you don’t understand?

If any of the above apply to you, you may have a case!

Navigating an L&I claim can be difficult and very time-consuming, especially when you’re ill or injured. You want to focus on healing and make sure your bills are paid, but if you don’t file things properly or on time, your health, home, and job could be in jeopardy. Many individuals miss out on much-needed L&I benefits because they don’t understand what to do or how to get the most compensation for their injuries. If you are experiencing any challenges in your case, a labor and industries attorney can assist you. By contacting Emery | Reddy as soon as possible after you’ve been injured, we can help you avoid the common pitfalls of filing an L&I claim.

L&I In Seattle, Washington

Seattle workers can file a claim for workers’ compensation through the L&I for a work-related illness or injury. Washington State requires employers to provide workers’ compensation coverage for employees either through L&I or self-insurance. L&I provides medical benefits and time-loss for injured workers who qualify. Each year, L&I processes tens of thousands of claims in the Seattle area, resulting in hundreds of millions worth of benefits for employees hurt on the job.

If you’d like to file a claim and want the process to be as smooth as possible, you need to report your injury as soon as possible and get medical treatment. You should also obtain a qualified Seattle L&I attorney who can help you maximize your benefits and navigate the complexities of the claims process.

In addition to L&I benefits, you may also be able to apply for additional benefits through the Seattle Paid Sick and Safe Time (PSST) Ordinance. An Emery | Reddy Seattle L&I lawyer can help you explore each avenue available to you and advise you on the best strategies for maximizing your compensation.


Where To Start With Your Seattle L&I Claim

L&I can be confusing and long for injured workers. If you don’t take the steps to stand up for yourself, they will rush you through their system and downplay your injuries to avoid paying out.

After you’ve notified your employer and seen a doctor, contact an attorney. Our Seattle L&I attorneys can make the difference between a denied claim and a brighter future. We’ve achieved life-changing results for our Seattle clients time and time again, and we’re ready to help you file a claim with L&I so you can get your life back.
