Twenty-year-old sopbilar driver Robert Biddix knew something or two about work compensation after suffering a back injury at work that left him permanently impaired.
And he will learn even more when he starts his new job as a paralegal working for Reck Law PLLC, a Compensation Law Firm that represents injured workers in Washington after undergoing a retraining course at Tacoma Community College, for which his work compensation claims payment.
The Seattle-based company announced Biddix's new job on Tuesday, praising the state's system of returning injured workers to the job, either in its chosen area or a new one that can take care of a handicap.
"It is a privilege to bring Biddix aboard," Tara Reck, a lawyer at Reck Law PLLC, said in a statement. "For over a decade, I have helped injured workers with so many aspects of their claims, but this is the first time I become the person who gives a new job to a injured worker. I am proud to have Mr Biddix on my team. have experienced first hand what is happening after a serious injury at work, and I know he is eager to put everything he learned to help other injured workers.
