Your claims manager is not there to make sure you get all the benefits you deserve. That’s my job.
You’ve always been proud of working hard. You showed dedication to your job. If you got hurt or developed an illness while working, you deserve support to recover, pay your bills and move forward with your life.
This is why workers’ compensation exists. In Washington State, it’s called industrial insurance. The Department of Labor & Industries oversees it. Under the program, your work earned you the right to benefits.
When you’re hurt at work, this is what you should do:
Workers’ comp provides several forms of financial and career assistance:
When you’re hurt at work, you’ll need to file an accident report to start your workers’ comp claim. You can do this a few ways:
Most employers in Washington State get workers’ comp through L&I. About one-third are self-insured. If your employer is self-insured, they handle your paperwork and pay your claim.

If your doctor can’t confirm that your medical condition comes from a work-specific injury, L&I may deny your claim.
But this isn’t the end. You can appeal.
When you appeal, we strongly encourage getting an attorney to handle the process.
Our attorneys work closely with you, your doctors and your L&I claim manager to collect the information you’ll need on your injury, medical history and work history.
But move quickly. As Tim Hamill says, “Every decision has a deadline to appeal that decision — or it becomes final!Get Help Now! »
I appreciate that Mr. Hamill took my case when the other attorneys in the area would not. He has helped me obtain the funds due me from L&I.”
