Here are the basics: If you are injured at work, you should get medical help, file a claim and tell your employer ASAP. Tell the first medical provider you see that you were injured on the job and they will file the L&I paperwork. Make sure your L&I claim form has the date, description of injury and your status (single, married, # of kids) accurately reported. You can also file online at FastFile. Tell your provider how you were injured in detail. Report your injury or injuries (including aggravation of previous injuries). If it hurts or feels different, report it to your medical provider. Getting conditions added for coverage under the claim is more difficult when they are not reported early to your medical provider. You have the right to choose your doctor and to decide who, if anyone, you want to accompany you to the doctor.
