Does L&I Compensation Cover Property Damage?

One of the benefits available to injured workers with an open workers’ compensation claim is L&I property damage reimbursement benefits.

You may be reimbursed for personal property lost or damaged during a workplace accident. To get reimbursed, complete and submit the Statement for Miscellaneous Services.

Limitations to Compensation for Damage to Property

Property damage coverage is limited to the following:

  • Prescription eyeglasses or contacts
  • Clothing
  • Shoes or boots
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE): Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs), hard hats, respirators, and full-body suits.

Why Doesn’t L&I Cover All Property Damage?

When L&I denies requests for these benefits, the best move is often to pay for the clothing or gear outright and seek reimbursement later in the process after the proof has been developed and the claim has been approved. In this case, be sure to keep the receipt or proof of purchase for the items so you can give them to L&I later on.

How Do I Know If I Have A Strong L&I Claim?

If you have an L&I claim or wonder if you have an injury case, ask yourself the following:

  • Have you been denied the medical care benefits to which you are legally entitled?
  • Has L&I asked you to undergo an Independent Medical Exam (IME)?
  • Do you have questions about the L&I claim process that you don’t understand?

If any of the above apply to you, you may have a case!

Navigating an L&I claim can be difficult and very time-consuming, especially when you’re ill or injured. You want to focus on healing and make sure your bills are paid, but if you don’t file things properly or on time, your health, home, and job could be in jeopardy. Many individuals miss out on much-needed L&I benefits because they don’t understand what to do or how to get the most compensation for their injuries. If you are experiencing any challenges in your case, a labor and industries attorney can assist you.
