Video Transcript: L&I Settlement Outcomes
ATTORNEY SPENCER PARR: Injured workers often call and ask us: “How can I obtain a settlement in my Labor & Industries claim?” There are various ways to obtain money at the end of the claim. One is by receipt of permanent partial disability settlement. One is through a sidebar settlement agreement, which is essentially an agreement whereby you agree not to litigate whether or not your claim should close and in trade for a certain sum of money.
A third way that you can settle your claim at the end of the case is to engage in something called a Compromise and Release Structured Settlement Agreement. It’s got this big long name, because, not only is it a traditional settlement where there’s a compromise of both parties’ positions and a release of liability, but also there’s a structured settlement aspect. In this sense, you’re entitled to obtain up to $30,000 in the first month and up to $7,000 in every subsequent month. Your payment is structured over a total number of months required in order to pay out the entire settlement amount.

Am I Eligible for L&I Pension?
Not all L&I pensions are worth the same and not all injured workers who feel entitled to an injury pension will receive one. Age, skills, labor market, medical restrictions, even the quality of legal representation all play an important role in determining how much you can collect in Labor & Industries (L&I) benefits.
Video Transcript: L&I Pension
ATTORNEY SPENCER PARR: Many people don’t know, and the Department of Labor & Industries does not advertise, that if an injured worker is injured so badly that they can’t return to work for the rest of their lives, they may be entitled to what’s known as an injury pension. They can effectively get their time loss rate, every day, for the rest of their life, no matter how long they live -even if they live beyond 100. The benefits are inflation-adjusted and keep pace over time. Those benefits can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Washington Law Center has pensioners who have pensions worth more than 2 million dollars. Those benefits may be available to you, but the self-insured employers and the Department of Labor & Industries don’t give them away. Generally, there’s a fight. If you believe that you may be entitled to an injury pension, you should hire one of the experienced and successful attorneys of Washington Law Center today.
A Case for Experts
The state of Washington and self-insured employers fight injury pension cases harder than they fight against any other type of claim, so these cases are often litigated intensively.
The amount of money awarded in an L&I pension is based on the worker’s actual earnings at the time of injury or occupational disease manifestation.
An experienced L&I attorney will help you increase the odds of your recovery. If you believe you should be entitled to an injury or occupational disease pension award, please call Washington Law Center to speak with an attorney today.
