Injured at Work? What You Need To Know:
If you suffer an injury at work and your claim is approved, L&I (or your self insured employer) will cover the cost of related medical care and services. If the injury renders you incapable of returning to work, you may also qualify for a percentage of your lost wages.
Those who work for self insured employers are entitled to the same rights and benefits as those who file L&I claims, but employers themselves, rather than L&I, will process the paperwork and pay for the claim. About thirty percent of Washington employees work for self insured employers. Click Here to find out if the company you work for is self-insured.
