Anyone Can Get Injured on the Job

You could work in any job — farm laborer, machinist, carpenter, welder, truck driver, health care worker, office worker — and find yourself hurting and needing workers’ comp.

Bothwell & Hamill helps people from all walks of life.

In fact, we’ve helped more than a thousand people throughout Central Washington. We fight to win benefits one person at a time.

Workers’ comp is a complex, specialized area of the law, with its own rules, procedures, and even its own judges.

Tim Hamill spent almost 10 years with the Washington Attorney General’s Office, representing the Department of Labor & Industries at every level of the court system. Since then, he’s been fighting for individual workers even longer.

He knows what to expect and how to respond.

Claims managers are not there to make sure you get all the benefits you deserve. That’s our job.

Yakima woman smiles after Bothwell & Hamill helps her win Social Security Disability benefits

I called on several occasions highly concerned about my pain level and anxious from waiting on my claim. The staff always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner, and the ladies listened to me while crying several times, and never once did I feel as though I was bothering them. I am very happy I chose Bothwell to represent me. I won!!!!”
