Washington's Workers Compensation System: An Overview
If you're hurt on the job in Washington, your workers' compensation is a bundle of five benefits. The first is medical treatment for your injury-related conditions. The second is time loss compensation for those who can't go back to work. The third is a vocational assessment and maybe retraining if you are permanently unable to go back to your former line of work. The fourth is a permanent partial disability award for those with permanent injuries but can go back to work. The fifth is a workers compensation pension if you are permanently unable to work.
