Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Dealing with the Department of Labor and Industries is complicated and requires an extensive knowledge of the workers’ compensation laws in the State of Washington. The Department of Labor and Industries may reject the opinion of your own doctor in favor of a doctor they have had you evaluated by just once. Mr. Thompson’s workers’ compensation practice focuses on injured workers seriously injured who have difficulty not only returning to the job of injury but even lighter duty jobs.
Social Security Disability Lawyer
A lawyer who has decades of experience working on denied Social Security disability claims can be of great help. When the Social Security Administration denies your initial claim, you should strongly consider hiring a lawyer for the necessary legal assistance. You may also want to seek advice before filing for Social Security disability and can also file your initial claim for disability through my office.
You will have to file timely appeals in addition to completing other confusing and burdensome paperwork. You will have to make a paper trail or create a record regarding your disability, and obtain medical support including from doctor’s who have treated you. You will likely go before an Administrative Law Judge to determine your eligibility which requires extensive legal knowledge, and the ability to cross-examine medical and vocational witnesses.
