    Work Injuries

    In addition to representing victims of offshore injuries, we handle all other types of work-related injury cases as well. While Washington law provides no-fault benefits to all eligible workers, many companies and the Dept. of L&I make it exceedingly difficult for their employees to receive the benefits they deserve. At Lehmbecker Law, we evaluate your claim and pursue third-party claims against any other parties (besides your employer) that may be responsible for your losses. Our consultations usually take one hour during which we’ll give you an up-front analysis about whether you need legal representation. More information about Washington State Department of Labor and Industry laws can be found on their website.

    Pedestrian Accidents

    More than 4,700 pedestrians were killed in motor accidents in 2013, and an additional 150,000 were admitted to the emergency room, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Pedestrians can be seriously injured by turning drivers, who fail to check to make sure that a crosswalk is clear before proceeding. This danger is increased at night or during inclement weather. Accidents can occur due to faulty intersection design or poorly controlled construction zones. Unfortunately, all of the contributing factors in a pedestrian accident can be hard to pinpoint, but should be explored in every case nonetheless.
