No matter what work you do for a living, there is always the chance that you could suffer an injury while on the clock. While Washington has a robust workers’ compensation program, this does not offer compensation for every accident-related expense. However, if another party’s negligence caused your workplace injury, you could file a third-party claim and recover additional damages. 

At Herschensohn Law, we can help you understand whether you qualify to file a third-party claim for a job-related injury. A Graham workplace injury lawyer can file your claim, investigate the incident, and negotiate for what you need. Today, you can meet our team and learn about your options. Dial (206) 588-4344 to begin a free case review. 

We Recommend Prompt Action Following a Workplace Injury

Between doctors’ appointments and familial obligations, time can fly in the aftermath of a work injury. In the blink of an eye, days can turn into weeks, and weeks into months. If too much time passes between now and your accident, you could lose the right to seek damages through a personal injury lawsuit. 

RCW 4.16.080 notes that you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Complying with this deadline allows you to file a lawsuit and seek financial recovery. Failing to abide by this deadline jeopardizes your right to seek damages. 

By promptly connecting with our team, we can file your case within the applicable deadline and preserve your right to damages. 

Our Graham Workplace Injury Lawyers Handle Everything

After your injury, you have enough things to worry about. You don’t need to juggle a complex legal case while recovering from a serious condition. Instead, you can entrust your case to Herschensohn Law and breathe a sigh of relief. We manage the entire claims process from start to finish. 

How Our Team Builds Your Case 

Workplace injury claims can be difficult to navigate because there are often so many different parties involved. Without a lawyer, you’ll have to manage communications with claims adjusters, medical professionals, eyewitnesses––the list goes on and on. 

As soon as you hire us, we take over all emails, phone calls, and text messages with the other parties. We also support your case by gathering evidence of negligence, which may include an accident report, eyewitness testimony, and video surveillance footage. 

Our Team Proves That Negligence Led to Your Injuries 

To recover compensation through an injury claim, we must show that: 

  • Another party had an obligation to prevent injuries on the job site.
  • This party failed to keep the premises safe. 
  • You were hurt while doing job-related tasks. 
  • You have damages stemming from an injury. 

As noted, we must investigate what happened to establish negligence. You don’t have to worry about this obligation, however. Herschensohn Law manages your case’s obligations from beginning to end. 

We Are Ready to Fight for You in Court

The goal is always to help our clients receive an optimal settlement. While we usually accomplish this through negotiations, we have no problem going to court if the situation calls for it. If your case makes it to trial, you can feel confident in our abilities to present your case in the best possible light. To reach a fair conclusion, we intend to file your lawsuit, cross-examine witnesses, and advocate for compensation. 

We Offer Free Consultations and Work on Contingency 

Your financial and physical recoveries are of the utmost importance. That is why we offer free consultations to our clients. During our no-obligation review, we can discuss your legal goals, injuries, and plans for the future. You also get the opportunity to meet our Graham workplace injury team and learn how we work on a contingency-fee basis. In this arrangement, you pay nothing out of pocket to retain our help.

Recovering Damages After a Workplace Injury in Graham, WA

As noted, as an injured worker in Washington State, you’re entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Yet, this only accounts for your medical bills and some of your lost income. It does not account for pain, suffering, and the effects of the accident on your life. 

Here’s what to know when our workplace injury lawyers handle your third-party claim: 

Recoverable Damages Include Your Past and Future Injury-Related Losses 

You can recover both economic and non-economic damages following a workplace injury. Economic damages account for your financial losses. Non-economic damages do not have inherent values, but rather, they account for the accident’s effect on your daily life. 

Examples of compensable losses in your workplace injury case may include: 

  • Medical expenses
  • The full cost of your lost wages, tips, and bonuses 
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement

We can also pursue the cost of anything you spent out of pocket on in-home assistance, assistive devices, and childcare services. 

The Value of Your Losses Depends on Your Situation 

How much you can recover through a claim or lawsuit depends on the nature of your injuries and the accident itself. At Herschensohn Law, we have helped our clients recover millions of dollars in damages, including numerous seven-figure settlements. 

We will thoroughly research your situation to ensure that we account for each of your losses. Every claim is different, so without evaluating the facts of your case, we can’t project how much you could recover.  

We’ve Recovered Millions for Injured Claimants 

Herschensohn Law has fostered a reputation based on tireless legal advocacy. We believe that our case results best summarize our commitment to success. Some of these include: 

  • Our client requested our services after he was electrocuted on a construction site. We found that another party’s negligence led to his condition, and we secured $1.6 million through negotiations. 
  • Our client was working on a marine construction site when he fell from a considerable height. We found that the site did not have protections in place to prevent such injuries. We secured $375,000 in damages through a negotiated settlement. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Workplace Injury Cases

It’s reasonable to have questions in the aftermath of an on-the-job injury. We strive to answer them. You may want to know: 

How Long Does It Take to Resolve a Workplace Injury Claim? 

The length of your case depends on many factors, some of which are completely out of our control. Yet, we aim to keep your case on track throughout our partnership. If we sense that the other insurer is purposely delaying your case, we can file a lawsuit against the negligent party and go from there. 

What Injuries Allow Me to File a Workplace Injury Claim? 

Herschensohn Law advocates for people suffering from: 

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma 
  • Soft-tissue injuries 
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Nerve damage 
  • The loss of one or more limbs

If you don’t see your specific condition listed above, that’s okay. We’re still ready to advocate for you. As noted, we also advocate for families who have lost loved ones.

Examples of Workplace Incidents That Our Team Handles

Workplace injuries can be severe, and when they take place, the injured party deserves compensation. While workplace injuries qualify you for workers’ compensation claims, if another party’s actions hurt you, you have additional options. 

These are examples in which an injured worker could benefit from filing a third-party injury claim or lawsuit: 

  • You drive regularly as part of your job. While completing your rounds, a drunk driver crashes into your car and injures you. Here, you could file a third-party claim against the motorist because their negligence resulted in your injuries. 
  • You were working on a construction site when a power tool backfired and caused serious burns. In that instance, you could have a case against the product’s manufacturer. Your case would allege that even though you used the tool as instructed, it malfunctioned and caused your injuries. 
  • You were working at a substantial height when you fell and suffered injuries. Another subcontractor on the site did not properly install nets and scaffolds that would’ve mitigated the fall. In that instance, you could hold that party accountable. 

You also have options if you lost a loved one to a work-related injury. Our wrongful death lawyers can guide you through this process, all while treating your family compassionately.
