Hope this post is not too late.
What you described is business as usual in WA state.
L&I is pretty corrupt. At one time there was a groups in
Tacoma that was working for fair treatment from L&I.
To understand your power in this situation - Boeing,
Weyerhauser and others do not want to have to pay the workers
they have poisoned.
I know a person who also was required to repay all
compensation - they attached her house and furniture.
She sought exception (something allowed in the law) but
Weyerhauser fought it because she was an activist. They said
they did not want to reward an activist and the judge agreed
Get a lawyer to see if you can get out of repayment but know
that they system is corrupt.
