If I am Unable to Work After an Industrial Injury, how long do I Have to Wait to Receive my Time Loss Compensation

The law provides that the Department of Labor & Industries or the self-insured employer shall pay time loss within 14 days of the date the Department or self-insured employer receives the report of accident. The report of accident must include certification by your treating physician that you are unable to work as a direct result of the industrial injury. Time loss for the day of the injury and the three days following are only payable if you remain unable to work for at least 14 days after the date of the industrial injury and your treating physician certifies your inability to work.
