If you miss work because of your injury and your doctor certifies you are unable to work, L&I or your self-insured employer may pay for a portion of your lost wages, called “time‑loss compensation.” However, the first 3 days immediately following your injury are considered a waiting period. You will only receive benefits for those days if you are still off work on the 14th day after your injury.

Generally, wage replacement or time loss is a benefit available to an injured worker when they miss work. If you would like to learn more about your workers’ compensation claim or benefits available through the Department of Labor and Industries, call the workers’ compensation attorneys at Althauser Rayan Abbarno.
