Oregon Workers' Compensation Law

In Oregon, workers are entitled to workers’ compensation insurance benefits for injuries arising out of and in the course of their employment.

Examples of expenses covered by Oregon workers’ compensation laws are: doctor bills, chiropractic care, physical therapy treatment, surgical bills, emergency services, ambulance expenses, limited mileage reimbursement, prescription costs, lost wages compensation, temporary disability payments, partial disability payments, and permanent disability payments.   

Oregon law prohibits employers from discriminating against injured workers.  It is a common misconception among injured workers that workers’ compensation insurance only covers those who have health insurance benefits.Any worker who has been injured on-the-job can file a workers’ compensation claim.  Help with your claim is only a phone call away!

If your claim for benefits has been denied, I can help you with your appeal.  If you are unsure about what to do with your denial, or just have questions about your rights as an injured worker, call today to set up a legal consultation.

DO NOT DELAY!

It is important to not delay!  Your rights could be lost if you fail to act promptly!
