Work Related Injuries
If you have recently been injured at work, you’re not alone. Work-related injuries are alarmingly common and can significantly impact a person’s productivity and their quality of life. Workplace injuries can include injuries from accidents at work, like slipping or falling, and strain from repetitive actions like lifting or typing.
A work-related injury is one that happened while you were doing something on behalf of your employer or otherwise in the course of employment. Most injuries that can be classified as work-related are those that occur at the workplace, but also may occur in company-owned trucks and other locations as long as the employee was doing something connected to their job.

• Work related injury chiropractor
• Works with both WA State L&I and self-insured plans for treating an injury on the job
• Washington State Labor & Industry credentialed practitioner
If you are injured at work or develop an occupational disease and your claim is accepted, workers' compensation (Labor & Industries or your self insured employer) pays for medical care directly related to your accident or illness. If you are unable to work following your injury, you may be eligible for a portion of your lost wages. Most important, L&I or your self insured employer may help coordinate a safe and timely return to work.
In state of Washington, a chiropractor is able to open a Labor & Industries claim so we can be your first stop post-injury. That being said, if you have seen another physician or went to the hospital, we can still assist you in your care and help manage your claim.
