Are you attempting to re-open a Workers Compensation claim? Re-opening a closed claim is no easy task and having an experienced injury attorney will help the process.  An injured worker must show 1) a causal relationship between the injury and subsequent disability; 2) an objective finding that an aggravation of the injury resulted in increased disability; 3) the aggravation occurred between the terminal date and aggravation; and 4) the disability on the order under appeal must be greater than the Department’s finding. If you or someone you know has a workplace injury, contact Peter Abbarno​ for a free injury consultation by calling (360) 736-1301.  Althauser Rayan Abbarno has offices in Centralia and Olympia and represent clients throughout SW Washington, including Thurston, Lewis, Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, and Pacific counties.
