The Statute of Limitations (SOL) is a law that sets a strict limit on the amount of time that an accident victim has to file a legal claim or action in order to recover financial compensation for their injuries, lost wages, medical bills, etc.
We all deserve a safe place to work, and we all deserve to work for people who take our individual safety seriously. Unfortunately, Washington State law dictates that many workers who are injured on the job as a result of their employer’s negligence are typically prohibited from bringing any type of legal claim against their employer or a co-employee. There are exceptions to this rule, however, and it is important for victims of workplace injuries to have a clear understanding of their legal options moving forward.
*Davis Law Group does not handle workers’ compensation claims. We are only able to represent those who have been injured on the job due to negligence of a third-party contractor. Anyone who wishes to make a claim solely against their employer should consult with a workers’ compensation attorney.
An on-the-job injury can ultimately be due to a number of different factors. Injuries from a motor vehicle collision that occurred on the job may result in a claim against the at-fault driver, as well as any other party who may be responsible. Defective machinery or equipment could lead to a product liability claim against the manufacturer or the party responsible for maintaining such equipment.
When it comes to construction accidents, general contractors in Washington State are required to comply with the Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act (WISHA) of 1973, which sets strict safety regulations for employees and employers alike. Third-party companies who are hired by general contractors may have the right to bring a legal claim against the general contractor should these safety regulations be violated.
Davis Law Group works on a contingency-fee basis, meaning you pay nothing up front and we don’t charge attorneys’ fees unless we are successful in making a fair and just financial recovery for you and your family.
We also offer free legal consultations for anyone interested in pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim related to an on-the-job accident that involved a third-party contractor or other entity. If you would like to discuss your case with our office, please contact us online here or call our downtown Seattle office at 206-727-4000.
