The law requires an employer to provide safe working conditions for their employees. The law also requires most employers to carry worker's compensation insurance. Worker's compensation benefits through an employment injury lawyer will allow you to be reimbursed for medical expenses as well as recover lost wages. Although this may not be the case, it is often very difficult for you to get the benefits you deserve.
Most states exercise a strict liability form of worker's compensation. This means that an employer is responsible for all injuries occurring at during the course of employment, with very few exceptions. In exchange, an employee may not sue his or her employer for any injuries that occur at work.
The law limits the amount of time you may wait before filing an Employment Injury Claim. Don't deny yourself compensation simply because you took too long. Contact the Nordstrom Law Firm right away at 509-924-8000 or through our contact form.
