For people living in Pasco, or anywhere across the Tri-Cities, if you were hurt at work—or you have health problems that stop you from working—the Central Washington lawyers at Bothwell & Hamill can help you get back on firmer ground.
Here you can find help with Security Disability benefits or Labor & Industries (L&I) claims.
If your medical or mental health condition rules out working, you might be eligible for financial assistance from Social Security Disability. But getting approved for benefits isn’t easy. It involves filling out long forms and compiling medical evidence. It can be a real challenge navigating the maze of rules.
According to Social Security numbers, your chances of winning are tough. A wide majority of initial applications are denied.
Bothwell & Hamill works with the Social Security Disability system every day. Tom Bothwell is one of the most experienced disability lawyers in Washington.
We know its requirements. And we’re familiar with the people in the local Social Security office. Our Kennewick office is just minutes away from the Social Security Administration, making it easy for you to get representation for your disability claim.
If a workplace injury has you assigned to light duty or is keeping you from working at all, you’ve got bills coming in but not enough income to cover them. Workers’ compensation benefits through the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries can take care of your medical expenses and partially replace your wages.
The workers’ comp system has its own laws, doctors, courts and judges. You can’t be expected to know that system in depth. But L&I attorney Tim Hamill, who used to work for the government on workers’ comp cases, knows it inside and out.
If you work in construction or food processing, on the railroad, or in any other industry in the Pasco area, and you need help getting L&I benefits, let us help.
We’re located in downtown Kennewick on North Center Parkway, only a short drive away no matter where you live in the Tri-Cities area.Call Us Now! »
If Social Security denied your claim for benefits, you may get the chance to appeal their decision in front of a Social Security administrative law judge. Pasco residents typically talk to a judge based in Spokane.
It’s a lot of work preparing for a hearing, and Spokane judges can be tough. Don’t take any chances with your case. Get an experienced lawyer.
If you were injured on the job, and workers’ comp is denying or skimping on your benefits, you also have avenues to appeal for your full benefits.
You can take your case to the Washington Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals. And experienced L&I attorney can help you.
