Work Injury and Negligence in Workers’ Compensation and L&I Claims

Negligence in personal injury

Negligence in a work injury

Injury and negligence — fact versus fiction

  1. Employers not providing workers with proper safety equipment.
  2. Seriously hurt workers told to go back to work.
  3. After a serious injury, telling the worker to drive themselves to the hospital.
  4. Providing employees with old, faulty or broken tools.
  5. Coworkers engaging in horseplay at work causing injury to others, and
  6. Employers not taking safety hazard complaints seriously.

Frustration mounts

What’s the takeaway?

  1. Medical treatment;
  2. Time loss compensation benefits;
  3. Loss of earning power benefits;
  4. Vocational services and retraining
  5. PPD awards;
  6. L&I pension; and
  7. Structured settlement or CRSA.
