Get a lawyer who knows workers’ comp in depth.

If you’re injured on the job, you need an experienced attorney. Workers’ Comp is a complex area of the law, with its own rules, procedures, courts and judges.

I’m Tim Hamill of Bothwell and Hamill.

For almost 10 years, I was an assistant attorney general representing Labor & Industries. But now I fight for injured workers. Let me help you.

How Do I Know if I Need Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

If you experienced a sudden injury at work, it may be obvious that you should receive workers’ compensation benefits. Still, you might wonder if the circumstances of your injury qualify.

Or maybe you gradually developed a health condition because of repetitive movements in your job or exposure to hazardous chemicals. It can be harder to pinpoint exactly when the problem started.

This much is certain: When you know you’re struggling with your health because of something that happened at work, that’s when you know you should get workers’ comp benefits.

You worked hard. You showed dedication. When you can’t work because you were hurt on the job, you shouldn’t be left with nothing.

Workers’ comp benefits, which in Washington are run by the State Department of Labor & Industries, can cover the medical bills related to your workplace ailment.

Workers’ comp can also pay you a large portion of the lost wages you’re missing while you can’t work.

But workers’ comp sometimes works against you. You need help from someone who knows their way around the system.

If you can’t work, let us go to work to get you benefits.

Your Lawyer Should Care About Your Case

Some law firms — maybe from out of town — might treat you like a number.

Tim Hamill doesn’t believe in working that way. This is what you get when you have him as your lawyer:

  • Someone who focuses on workers’ comp law
  • Someone who handles your case personally
  • Someone who explains your case in plain language and doesn’t try to intimidate you with “legalese”
  • Someone who makes the complicated L&I system less scary
  • Someone who makes sure you’re treated with honesty, dignity and respect

Get a Lawyer Who Protects You From Errors

With workers’ comp, sometimes your case is about more than whether you’re getting benefits or not. It’s about getting the maximum benefits.

A claims manager might make a mistake calculating how much money you should get in time-loss payments. Or L&I might cut off your benefits too soon.

Tim can help you maintain benefits for longer.

He can explain to you — and to L&I — what medical services you should be receiving for free and how much you should be getting in lost wages.

When you’ve been hurt at work, don’t hesitate. Start your claim as soon as you can.
