More About What You’ll Learn:

This informative event will provide you with the information regarding your Worker’s Compensation Rights in the state of Washington.  For example, Did You Know?

  • Your first visit to a doctor for a specific workplace injury is covered, even if your claim is not approved.
  • You have the right to apply to reopen a claim? If objective medical evidence shows the condition caused by your injury or disease has worsened and requires additional health-care attention, your claim may be reopened.
  • You have a right to privacy as a patient? Employers are not allowed to share information regarding your physical or mental health to unauthorized parties.
  • You have the right to decline to have the company nurse or any employer representative accompany you to the hospital, doctor, or any other medical visit.
  • You have the right to choose your doctor and to decide who, if anyone, you want to accompany you to the doctor.
  • You may be eligible for a variety of benefits, including medical care, if it’s directly related to your injury.
  • If your workers’ compensation claim is approved, L&I or your self-insured employer will cover medical bills directly related to your injury until your doctor certifies your injury has stabilized and reached a point where further recovery isn’t expected.

If you didn’t know even one of these things, this Informational Event is for you. Don’t miss it!
