CANYON CITY - Area workers with on-the-job injuries can get their questions about workers' compensation answered at no cost in a one-on-one meeting in July.

The session is one of a series scheduled by an advocate from the Office of the Ombudsman for Injured Workers. The other meetings will be in Pendleton, La Grande, Baker City, Ontario, and The Dalles.

The advocate will talk with those who want assistance or information about benefits, claim denials, claim closures, appeal rights, litigation process, or other aspects of the workers' compensation claim process.

The advocate will be at 120 S. Washington St. on Thursday, July 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Walk-ins are welcome; however, to guarantee a meeting time, schedule appointments by calling toll-free (800) 927-1271, ext. 7770.

Interpreter services will be available by teleconference, if needed.
