Phillips Law Firm Can Handle Your Workers Comp Claim

Worker’s Compensation in Seattle & all of Washington State is one of only four state-run worker’s compensation insurance programs in the country. Washington State Labor and Industries (L&I) is an agreement between employees and employers that, if the employer pays their premiums and provides a safe work environment, the employee will not sue the employer. However, far too often employers don’t hold up their end of the bargain or L&I denies a legitimate claim. Phillips Law Firm has a team of experienced advocates and workers compensation lawyers dedicated to getting you the workers compensation that you deserve.
