If you've been injured on the job, dealing with the Department of Labor and Industries or the self-insured employer can be an intimidating, frustrating experience. You may have questions that are not being answered.
At Prediletto, Halpin, Scharnikow and Nelson, P.S., we can assist you in answering these questions, and help you to get all the benefits to which you're entitled, including total temporary disability benefits if you are unable to work for a time after your injury; loss of earning power benefits if you are unable to return to the same job at the same rate of pay for a time after your injury; vocational retraining benefits if you are unable to return to any type of work at all after your injury; a "settlement" or permanent partial disability award if your doctors certify that you have suffered some permanent impairment; and total permanent disability or "pension" benefits if your doctors certify that as a result of your industrial injury or occupational disease you are permanently unable to return to any kind of work.
