Workers' Compensation Attorney in Seattle
If you get injured on the job in Seattle, Washington’s employment laws allow you to recover some form of compensation, also known as benefits. These “benefits” usually cover your medical expenses and lost wages to a certain extent.

What Is Workers’ Compensation?
This is a form of insurance that provides medical benefits and wage replacement to employees injured or become ill during their employment. It is a no-fault system, meaning employees can receive benefits regardless of who caused the workplace injury.
What Types of Workplace Injuries Are Typically Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Common workplace injuries covered by workers' compensation include:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Injuries from lifting or carrying heavy objects
- Burns and other injuries from workplace accidents
- Occupational diseases
The list above is not conclusive, though. If you believe your injuries or illnesses derive from a work-related incident, we’ll gladly review your case for free.
What Steps Should I Take After a Work-Related Injury?
The steps you take can make or break your case. To avoid jeopardizing your chances of recovering damages, here’s what you should do:
- Seek medical attention immediately.
- Report the injury to your supervisor promptly.
- Document the details of the accident.
- Gather the contact information of anyone who witnessed the incident
- Keep records of all medical treatment and expenses.
What Factors Might Lead to a Denial of a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
The insurance company might deny your claim for any of the following reasons:
- Failure to report the injury promptly
- Disputes over the cause or nature of the injury
- Lack of medical evidence supporting the claim
- Injuries occurring outside the scope of employment
Note that some denials may be unjustified and a sign that the insurance company is acting out of bad faith, something we might be able to help determine and decide the best course of action.
