Injured Workers' Alliance (IWA) was formed in 1998. We're injured workers, their families and friends, and other concerned Oregonians. We're unpaid volunteers. We were not organized by, and are not influenced or operated by, any law firm or other business entity, nor by government. We advocate solely for you and strive to improve the lives of every Oregon worker since anyone can be injured at work in a moment's time.
We were forced to mobilize in response to the mistreatment of thousands of hard-working people like you. Moderately to severely injured workers, in large numbers, do not receive needed medical treatment, such as surgery and physical therapy, in a timely manner. Many receive no treatment whatsoever. This situation has caused a worsening of injuries and created permanent, lifelong pain and misery. Families are literately being destroyed.
By law, IWA cannot provide legal advice. Due to a shortage of volunteers, we're unable to assist Oregon workers one-on-one.
Instead, we focus on efforts to help thousands at one time. We also provide an "enormous" amount of information here to help workers get through the workers comp system as best as possible. We empower workers with knowledge. [ read more
