You have a legal right to collect worker’s compensation

If you have an accident and get injured on the job, or if you suffer from a job-related illness, you may be entitled to certain benefits.

These include:

  • Medical coverage for surgery, prescription medications, physical therapy, or other rehabilitative services
  • If you have to take an extended leave from work, you may be eligible to have a portion of your salary paid as time-loss compensation
  • If the injury is so severe that you have to change careers or are medically unable to rejoin the workforce, benefits may provide for retraining or even a pension award

We’ll help you navigate your way

The Department of Labor and Industries (L and I) employs doctors, lawyers, and consultants all in an effort to cut costs and close your claim as quickly as possible, many times against the advice of your doctor. As experienced worker’s compensation attorneys, Chris and Rich help you navigate your way through confusing L and I laws and industry jargon. Without support, you can find yourself on the backside of a serious injury with lingering medical bills, unable to return to your job and no way to get the coverage you need, deserve, and have paid for.

They care

“Regarding my L and I claim, Chris and Rich listen to my needs and actually do what needs to be done to meet those needs… They care!”

Don’t have to worry

“The most positive thing about working with Carlisle and Byers would be the communication that I have, the answers to my questions, and the speed in which they get answers. I don’t have to worry about what’s going on with my L and I claim.”

Couldn’t have done it without him

“We went to Richard Byers with a very complicated Labor and Industries issue and he worked very hard on our case. To make things even more complicated for our case, my husband got sick with cancer, and Richard helped us put things in place the right way before my husband died. Richard still worked just as hard for me, and I couldn’t have done it without him. If anyone needs a GREAT Labor and Industries lawyer, call him.”
