What is Workers' Compensation?
Workers' compensation is a type of insurance administered to employees to cover for lost income and medical expenses due to work-related injuries while also providing employers with legal protection. In Washington state, the Labor and Industries (L & I) Department establishes the legal process for handling workers' compensation claims. Coastal Health can help employers understand their obligations under the law and can assist employees with a variety of workers' comp-related needs, including physical therapy, rehabilitation, support with documentation for claims, and help to understand the complex world of workers' compensation. For more information on how Coastal Health can help with your workers' compensation needs, contact Dr. Alisha Detorres and Dr. Jessica West in Port Angeles, WA today.
