BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Twenty-year garbage truck driver Robert Biddix knew a thing or two about workers compensation after suffering a back injury at work that left him permanently impaired.
And he’ll learn even more as he starts his new job as a paralegal working for Reck Law PLLC, a workers compensation law firm that represents injured workers in Washington, after taking a retraining course at Tacoma Community College, for which his workers compensation claim paid.
The Seattle-based firm announced Mr. Biddix’s new job on Tuesday, praising the state’s system for returning injured workers to work, either in their chosen field or a new one that can accommodate a disability.
"It is a privilege to bring Mr. Biddix on board,” Tara Reck, managing attorney 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 get to be the person providing an injured worker with a new job. I'm thrilled to have Mr. Biddix on my team. He has experienced first-hand what happens after a severe injury at work, and I know he's eager to put all he's learned to work helping other injured workers."
