Do not meet with an insurance company representative without talking to a lawyer  first!

Herschensohn Law pllc understands the complexities of the law and has the experience that helps its clients realize outstanding settlements and courtroom solutions. The firm's aggressive no holds barred approach places the responsibility for accidents of any kind in the hands of those who may have caused them.

Injuries that happen on the job are always covered by Worker's Compensation. This coverage is automatic and required for every legitimately employed citizen. There is no question about getting help. You are always protected when you are on the job.

While you can't sue your employer, with effective legal support from Herschensohn Law pllc, you can sue "third parties" who may have caused your injury.

On the job injuries caused by a defective product, by a defective machine, by someone who is not employed by your boss or by the negligence of someone your boss invited to the work site are called 'third party' injuries. The law requires that this "third party" be asked to pay for the injured worker's medical treatment and other claim expenses. Either the state agency can seek this payment, or the skilled legal team of Herschensohn Law pllc can make sure you get the maximum amount due.

Here are some examples of "third party" circumstances provided by the State of Washington's Department of Labor and Industries:

  • The driver (not an employee of the worker's company) of the car that hit the worker.
  • The manufacturer of a defective product that injured the worker.
  • A property owner who failed to properly maintain a safe workplace.
  • An injury that was not the employer, employee or co-worker's fault. (Example: Another contractor on the job site whose negligence caused the worker's injury.)
  • The owner of an animal that bit a worker.

Herschensohn Law pllc has the knowledge and experience to make sure that people injured on the job - and in many instances their survivors - collect what they are due from third parties. It doesn't matter if third party was unaware of the conditions. It matters that they let them happen. If you are injured on the job, contact Herschensohn Law pllc. We will assess your case and help you evaluate its merits.

The firm's strong defense of client rights is coupled with an unmatched kindness for people who have suffered workplace injuries.
