When you’ve suffered a work injury, you may need financial aid that covers your losses. The problem is, you don’t know how to calculate a Virginia Workers’ Comp settlement. You may have no experience, and your injuries may be sapping any time and energy you had for learning about Workers’ Comp law.
That’s where Pathfinder Injury Law can help. If you’re hurt because of a work accident, reach out to a dedicated lawyer from our firm for help when calculating your Virginia Workers’ Comp settlement.
First, you need those medical bills covered, fast. They add up when you’re hurt, and you may need treatment for months or even years after your work accident. For injuries like spinal cord damage, you may face lifelong consequences for the work accident.
Luckily, Virginia workers can get their medical bills covered by their Workers’ Comp settlement. Your Workers’ Compensation should cover the costs of your initial medical care, plus any later needed care, specialist treatment, and travel costs if you need out-of-town treatment. If you’re worried about paying out of pocket for your treatment, talk to your Workers’ Comp lawyer about your settlement.
Your Virginia Workers’ Comp covers more than your hospital bills. Your Workers’ Comp settlement should also cover your wages when you’re unable to work.
These benefits cover a portion of your weekly income. The amount and duration of the benefits you receive will depend on the type of injury you suffered and whether you’re able to return to work in any capacity. If you’re not sure what disability benefits you’re due, talk to your Workers’ Comp lawyer in Virginia about what your settlement may be worth.
