    Default I Can Work, but I Can't Get to Work

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Washington

    I can do some of my job and my employer is open to light duty, but I have two casts on my legs, so I can't get to work. My employer says it's my responsibility to get to my job. There are no bus lines near my home and taxi fare is 3/4 of my daily wage. I have family and friends, but they would have to take time off their jobs to drive me to and from work.

    Am I safe, since this is part of my injury keeping me from driving, or can they fire me for not showing up?

    If you don't have a lawyer, contact your claims adjuster or case manger and see if you qualify for travel reimbursements for the cost of getting to work.
    If you have a lawyer, see what he can do to help.
