Injured at Work? What you Need to Know:
Labor & Industries (L&I Claims)
If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. After your claim is approved, the cost of your medical care and rehabilitation services will be covered by either Washington State Labor & Industries (L&I) or by your employer’s insurance. If permanent disability resulting from the injury prevents you from returning to work, you may even qualify for those lost wages.
Injured employees of self-insured businesses are entitled to the same workers’ rights and compensation benefits as those who file claims with L&I. However, in this case it is the employer, rather than Labor & Industries, who will process the claim and compensate the injured worker for losses and damages. Before you file your claim, find out if your company is among the thirty percent of employers who are self-insured in Washington State.
It is important for workers’ to fully understand their right to compensation in the event of an occupational injury. It is illegal for employers to fire, layoff, or refuse to hire a person as punishment for seeking Workers’ Compensation. These are known as retaliatory practices, and any form of such practice is illegal under state and federal law.
Victims of this sort of retaliation following an L&I suit are eligible for compensation from their employer. If you have been the victim of retaliatory practices, act now; there is no limit to the amount of compensation that you may be awarded.
