Need someone who speaks your language at your appointments?

If you have an open claim with L&I or the Crime Victims’ Compensation program, you can find and have an interpreter at your appointments with a doctor or vocational provider. There is no charge for this service. L&I does not pay for interpretation for making appointments or for legal purposes.

Face-to-face interpreting

Over-the-phone interpretation

  • Your medical or vocational provider will use the telephone to contact a trained interpreter.
  • The interpreter will listen to both sides of your conversation, restating the provider’s questions in your own language and then restating your answers in English.
  • Over-the-phone interpretation is faster and easier to arrange than an in-person interpreter.


If you have questions, please contact Megan Lemon,, or call 360-902-5161.
