The Benefits of Partnering With Our Ellensburg Workplace Injury Lawyers

Everyone in Washington State is eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, this program doesn’t account for the full scope of your losses. It doesn’t even cover your lost wages in full; you can only recover two-thirds of your average weekly wage. 

Our team can explore whether you can file a third-party claim or lawsuit to recover all of your damages. Herschensohn Law’s personal injury team

How Our Workplace Injury Lawyers Fight for Compensation

Our full-service legal team in Ellensburg will manage every aspect of your case, including:

Dealing With Insurers 

Although they are for-profit businesses, insurers are an integral part of the claims process. We handle all communications with insurers, including phone calls, emails, and text messages. This ensures that nobody violates your rights, and our team has control over every case-related interaction.

Securing Evidence of Negligence

Negligence is at the heart of your workplace injury claim. That requires us to show that because another party acted without regard for others’ safety, you were hurt, and they should pay for your losses. Yet, we need evidence to validate this aspect of your case. 

These items may include: 

  • Video footage of the accident
  • Eyewitness accounts of the accident (or the circumstances leading up to it) 
  • Expert testimony about the cause of the accident
  • The accident report
  • Your medical records 
  • Photos of the accident scene (if possible) 

We work quickly to gather evidence, as time can allow the disposal or destruction of important details. Don’t wait to hire our team. We can start building your case today.

Calculating and Documenting Your Damages

Our attorneys will document your damages so liable parties cannot contest them. We may document your damages with:

  • Medical bills
  • Doctors’ written testimony
  • Medical images of your injuries (such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs) 
  • Expert testimony about your damages
  • Your own accounts of pain and suffering
  • Invoices for accident-related property damage costs 
  • Past employment records indicating how much income you have lost

Using this documentation and our calculation methods, we will determine exactly how much compensation you deserve.

Leading Settlement Negotiations 

Our firm fights for clients at the negotiating table. If we can’t convince the liable parties to offer a fair settlement, we will take your case to trial in Ellensburg.

We have a committed team of lawyers, paralegals, investigators, and experts ready to serve you. If the liable parties want a fight, we won’t back down. Focus on your health, while Herschensohn Law focuses on your case. 

People we’ve helped

We Uncover Fault and Liability for Your Ellensburg Workplace Accident

You generally can’t sue your employer in Washington State, as they have immunity from lawsuits by offering workers’ compensation. However, you could have options for pursuing damages from a third party. After our investigation, we may conclude that one or more of the following parties caused your accident and injuries: 

  • The manufacturer or operator of a vehicle involved in an on-the-job motor vehicle accident
  • The manufacturer of heavy equipment that caused injuries
  • The manufacturer or seller of safety equipment that failed to protect you
  • The owner of a private property or worksite where you suffered injury
  • A subcontractor or general contractor (in the construction sector) 

If you suffered injuries on the job, our lawyers are ready to advocate for you. We will review your case, explain your options, and do everything in our power to get the compensation you deserve. 

Recoverable Damages We Seek for Workplace Accident Claimants in Ellensburg

Each workplace injury client we represent in Ellensburg has unique damages. No two cases are the same, and the severity of your condition will determine what you can recover. Whether through a claim or lawsuit, compensable losses in your case may comprise: 

Medical Bills

Medical bills can be an immediate, overwhelming consequence of a workplace injury. Our clients injured in Ellensburg workplaces may face bills for:

  • Ambulance transportation
  • Emergency department care
  • Surgery
  • Hospitalization
  • Medications
  • Doctors’ appointments

We seek a financial award that accounts for your past, present, and future healthcare expenses. You shouldn’t have to forsake any aspect of your treatment plan because of concerns about cost. 

Non-Economic Damages 

Non-economic damages include losses that don’t come with bills or other supporting documents. Rather, they’re subjective, and they refer more to the accident’s effect on your quality of life. Examples include: 

  • Pain and suffering 
  • Psychological distress
  • Emotional anguish
  • Lost quality of life
  • Depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Disability 

It can be difficult to determine the cost of these damages. However, our attorneys have extensive experience calculating non-economic damages, and we rely on our resources to arrive at an accurate settlement value. 

Professional Damages

You may have concerns about making ends meet after suffering a workplace injury. So, our lawyers will seek financial recovery for: 

  • Lost income
  • Diminished future earning power (which may occur if you return to work in a limited or altered capacity)
  • Lost opportunities to earn bonuses and promotions 
  • Lost benefits

Property Damage Expenses

In some workplace accidents, such as those involving collisions, the victim suffers property damage. For instance, your car may need repairs or replacement. We’ll assess the cost of repairing or replacing your damaged property, then fight for a settlement. 

Wrongful Death-Related Damages 

If you lost a loved one in an Ellensburg workplace accident, we first offer our condolences. The entire Herschensohn Law team will fight for financial justice, which may include compensation for:

  • Any pain and suffering the decedent experienced before passing away
  • Your pain and suffering 
  • Lost spousal companionship
  • Lost parental guidance
  • Loss of the decedent’s income through retirement age
  • Loss of the decedent’s household services
  • Funeral and burial costs 
  • End-of-life care services, including palliative care 

Whatever your damages are, Herschensohn Law will fight for your complete financial recovery. 

Our Lawyers Have Secured Millions for Workplace Injury Claimants

We could go on and on about our commitment to client success. Yet, nothing speaks better to our dedication than our case results. Here are two of our stories: 

  • Our client was electrocuted while going about his day-to-day tasks. We found that another party’s negligence caused his condition. We secured $1.6 million through settlement talks. 
  • Our client was a maritime construction worker who fell from a substantial height, suffering serious injuries. We protected their rights by negotiating a $375,000 settlement. 

“Zach will always take time and give you quality advice that you can trust. Highly recommended!”
