Question Details: I was injured 7 years ago at and accident at work which was caused due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment. I was covered by Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. I was diagnosed with a post concussive disorder that most likely arose from the accident; I am now getting help with that. The company that manufactured the equipment had accepted responsibility and their insurance company called me looking for medical bills about 3 years after the accident. I didn't understand that I needed to pursue them, aside from dealing with L&I because I wasn't thinking clearly. I still have issues today with higher thought processes and processing speed. I also, recently had 2 discs in my neck replaced, as well as a repair on a vertebra that was related to the accident. Am I out of luck with pursuing the company that manufactured the equipment that I was working with?
