Employment Law + Workers’ Compensation

Finding a law firm that takes both Workers’ Compensation and Employment Law cases is nearly impossible – until now. We are one of the only firms in the country that litigates both Workers’ Comp and Employment Law cases.

Why does this matter? If a law firm cannot do both, there’s a good chance you’re not going to get the total award you deserve for your workplace claim. Other firms pursue only half of your case – they take your Workers’ Compensation claim, but ignore the option to pursue your federal employment claims. Sign up with that firm and you’re missing out on opportunities to bring Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims for missing work or Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) claims when your employer takes adverse action against you for getting injured. Emery Reddy has litigated cases all the way to the Supreme Court of Washington to win for our clients and change the way the courts interpret Washington employment law. This is the firm you want to handle your Workers Compensation / Labor and Industries (L&I) claim.

From the moment we accept a Workers’ Compensation / L&I case, we analyze it to add employment claims. We find that employers often take adverse action against employees who’ve been injured at work. Employees injured at work often require a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or other assistance getting through the injury. Unfortunately, employers often deny even reasonable accommodation and medical leave requests, and they sometimes fire or suspend injured workers after their injuries prevent them from working. Our experienced litigation team is adept at leveraging both your Workers’ Compensation and Employment Law claims to maximize your total award. Give us a call and we’ll tell you how we can help.
