Seeking workers' compensation in Oregon: Medically stationary

When you're hurt in an accident at work, you can typically apply for workers' compensation to cover the costs of your medical care, lost wages, and other needs. There are some responsibilities you have when you receive this assistance, and if you don't meet them, you could lose your coverage. For instance, you need to keep your appointments and attend an independent medical exam if one is scheduled for you. If you don't keep up with your appointments, it's possible to lose access to your workers' compensation coverage, since it may appear you do not need the medical care.
