Workers’ Compensation

A Law Firm That Stands Up For Injured Workers

A work injury can leave you with significant hardships, including lost wages, medical bills and short- or long-term disability. If you were injured on the job, you deserve workers’ compensation benefits. Bill Hochberg and Rachel Hamar, the attorneys at Hochberg & Hamar, PLLC, in Edmonds can help you fight for them.

A Broad Perspective On Workers’ Compensation Law

Before devoting his career to helping injured workers, Bill Hochberg worked as an assistant attorney general for the Washington State Labor and Industries and Social and Health Service Divisions. This past experience gave him a comprehensive perspective of workers’ compensation law. Today, he draws upon this industry experience to help clients with their workers’ compensation claims and appeals in Washington.

We are familiar with all of the strategies employers use to limit, delay and even deny workers’ comp benefits. We are strong allies for injured workers and will provide you with the aggressive representation you need to obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

We serve people from all walks of life and in all types of occupations, including:

  • Construction
  • Factories and manufacturing
  • Warehousing
  • Restaurants and hotels
  • Health care
  • Agriculture
  • Office, administrative and technology

Whether you were injured in an on-the-job accident or developed an occupational illness or repetitive stress injury over years of work, we have the experience and knowledge to help you.

Third-Party Liability Claims

If your work injury was caused by a negligent third party (a contractor or equipment manufacturer, for instance), you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. This additional claim could significantly increase the total amount of compensation you receive for your on-the-job injury. We have significant experience in both of these legal areas, allowing us to pursue all avenues of compensation for the people we serve.
