What You Need to Know About Worker’s Compensation
Worker’s compensation laws in Washington exist to provide coverage regardless of who’s at fault for the injury. If you’ve suffered a workplace injury or work-related illness, you may be entitled to receive medical coverage for surgery, prescription medications, physical therapy or other rehabilitative services.
If your injury or illness results in you having to take an extended leave from work, you may be eligible to have a portion of your salary paid as ‘time loss’ compensation. And if the injury is so severe that you have to change careers or are medically unable to rejoin the workforce, benefits may provide for retraining or even a pension award.
While these benefits can be helpful for anyone unfortunate enough to be injured on the job or suffer a job-related illness in Washington, accessing the benefits can be difficult and frustrating. That’s why you need Carlisle & Byers!
