Your legal right to collect workers’ compensation

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

Workers’ comp benefits for a job-related injury/illness:

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.

Compassion and empathy

“Rich showed compassion and empathy towards my situation. I truly felt that he cared about my recovery and securing the rightful compensation I deserved.”

Mitra N.

Don’t have to worry

“The most positive thing about working with Carlisle and Byers would be 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&I claim.”

Stephen F.

Moral support

“Chris was so truthful. Anything that happens he’s right on the phone calling me. He’s even gone to a couple of appointments with me just for moral support. They are interested in how I’m doing, how I’m feeling, what I’m doing, and whether or not I’m getting the medications I need. It’s just been a really great experience.”

Lynn H.

“I had no idea I would become a workers’ comp attorney while I was in law school. Through personal experience I became aware that this was a unique area of law – one where people feel confident that if they’re injured, the state or their employer will provide the coverage they were promised (and paid into). Unfortunately, when the injury does happen, it becomes very apparent that those promises are often empty, and what the injured worker really gets is an unexpected fight. It’s not right, simple as that.”
