While L&I is deciding your eligibility, a medical provider may send you a bill. Keep 1 copy. Send 1 to L&I. The bill will be paid if L&I approves your claim.
Continue to contact coworkers or other people who may have witnessed your injury, and collect their names and phone numbers.
If your employer offers you light duty and you believe the work is making your injury worse, immediately contact your doctor. If the doctor agrees, you may go back to time-loss benefits. To do so, notify your claim manager you are no longer able to perform light duty work.
If only part-time light duty work is available, you may still get additional time-loss benefits.
*Make sure you know your protest or appeal deadline. If L&I denies your claim, you can protest or appeal, but only for a limited time.
