Hurt in a Virginia work accident? Your injury lawyer can help you get compensated when you’re hurt on the job.
No matter where you work, you can be injured at any time. When that happens, you may have trouble getting compensated for your injuries. You’re certain you have Workers’ Comp benefits, but you may be unsure how to take advantage of these benefits in Virginia.
That’s where Pathfinder Injury Law can help. Talk to a Virginia work injury lawyer about your injuries and your potential benefits after your accident.
One of your first concerns may be about whether you’re eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits. Here’s the good news—almost all workers in Virginia can be eligible for Workers’ Compensation. Any employer with three or more employees must provide Workers’ Comp benefits.
But things are more complicated for those listed as independent contractors. If you believe you should be counted as an employee, your work injury lawyer can help you build a case to prove you were acting as an employee in order to seek the coverage you need.
Before you get your Workers’ Comp benefits, you need to know what benefits you’re eligible for. Below are some of the workers comp benefits you may receive after a work injury:
If your Virginia worker injury claim is denied, don’t panic—you’re not out of options for your Workers’ Comp claim. You have a chance to appeal that denial with a work injury lawyer.

Once they have the needed evidence, your lawyer can represent you in a hearing with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. During your hearing, they’ll present your evidence, which can be key to getting your claim approved.
So you’ve been injured at work. Now what? First, don’t panic. There are several steps you can take in order to make things a little easier:
After a work injury, you need Workers’ Comp benefits that cover your needs. From your initial medical care to your disability benefits, you should receive the help you need for your injuries. But what if you have some trouble getting your benefits in Virginia?
