Workers' Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that’s paid for by your employer and covers your medical and hospital expenses if you’re injured on the job. If you need to take time off from work due to your injury or work-related illness, workers’ compensation also pays a percentage of your wages.

In the state of Washington, you are obligated to notify your employer about your injury as soon as possible. Then they give you the information you need to know about getting workers’ compensation.

However, you have a time limit for filing a workers’ compensation claim. You must file a claim within one year after the day your injury occurred.

If you develop a work-related illness or medical condition, called an occupational disease, you have two years from the date a doctor or registered nurse notifies you in writing that you have an occupational disease.

What types of injuries does workers’ compensation cover?

The team at Lynx Healthcare treats many different types of work-related injuries, but the most common are:

  • Soft tissue injuries like muscle strains
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Being struck by an object
  • Accidents involving tools
  • Car or truck accidents
  • Crush injuries 

Though your risk of an injury is higher in some occupations, you can sustain these injuries on any job and in every work environment. You could work in a quiet office but still slip on a wet floor, fall, and fracture a bone.
