If your state industrial insurance claim stemming from your workplace injury or disability case has been denied by the Department of Labor and Industries, you have 60 days from receipt of the order denying the claim to file an appeal with the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals. In these scenarios, it is vitally important to consult with an experienced state industrial injury and disability appeals attorney as soon as possible.

Our dedicated attorneys and staff at Harpold Thomas, PC, have decades of experience handling workers' compensation claims, appeals and denials, for clients in Kent, Washington, and throughout the surrounding areas.

Please note, if you do not prevail in your workers' compensation or state industrial insurance appeal before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, you still have the opportunity to take your case to the Pierce County or King County Superior Court. However, what many injured or disabled workers fail to realize is that the Superior Court will only consider evidence provided during the initial appeal. This is exactly why it is so important to construct a strong initial appeal before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals.
