Virginia Workers’ Compensation Guide

Hurt in an on-the-job accident in Virginia? You may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation. Reach out to a lawyer who can help you seek the Workers’ Comp benefits you need.

One moment, you’re doing your job, just like always. The next, something went wrong, and you were seriously injured. Now, you’re dealing with the pain, the bills, and the inability to work. Worse, you may not have the funds to deal with your injuries.

Luckily, you have a chance to get Virginia Workers’ Compensation. Pathfinder Injury Law is here to help you get compensated fairly when you’re hurt on the job.

Benefits for Injured Virginia Workers

When you’ve suffered a severe work injury, you need your Workers’ Compensation to cover all your needs following the accident. But you may be unsure what benefits you should expect or ask for. Here are a few benefits your Workers’ Compensation lawyer in Virginia can help you seek.

Medical Benefits

When you’re hurt in a Virginia work accident, you may need help paying for the medical bills you’ve accrued. Your Workers’ Compensation should cover these losses.

Even better, they should cover many of your other recovery-related expenses. For example, if you need to see a specialist in another town, your medical care costs should be covered.

Disability Benefits

Being unable to work can put a financial strain on you and your family. Your lawyer can help you seek disability benefits to ease that strain.

These benefits replace some of the wages you’ve lost while unable to work. These benefits typically cover two-thirds of your former wages.

Death Benefits

If you’ve lost a loved one in a work accident, you may be due workers’ comp benefits, as well. Their Workers’ Compensation may cover up to $10,000 in burial expenses, as well as some weekly compensation for any dependent family members.

What if My Workers’ Comp Is Denied?

If you’ve been hurt on the job in Virginia, you may be relieved to know that Workers’ Compensation is available for you. But you may have received a denial letter, not a Workers’ Compensation check.

Luckily, that’s not the end of your claim. Your Workers’ Comp lawyer can help you gather evidence in your favor to appeal the denial. For example, the insurance company may claim you weren’t that seriously injured. More tests from your doctor may prove you were hurt badly enough that you need Workers’ Compensation. Your lawyer can also represent you in a hearing for your Workers’ Compensation.
