Workers’ Compensation

Even if your medical bills have been paid and the insurance company seems to be treating you fairly, it’s wise to seek free legal advice from an attorney regarding your injury. You may not be fully aware of what the law requires your employer to do when you’re hurt on the job, or what benefits you may be entitled to.

Quite often the insurance company does not tell you that you have a limited time to file a claim in order to protect your rights under the law. DO NOT rely on the adjuster or the insurance carrier to “do the right thing.” I can assist in successfully maneuvering through the complex bureaucratic process of filing a claim with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. If you are injured or become ill at your workplace or a work-related activity, call me for a consultation at no cost to you. That’s right, FREE.

You may be entitled to benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence. As an experienced workers’ compensation attorney, I assist workers in receiving fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace. I help workers obtain coverage for their workers’ compensation claims, including:

  • Lifetime Medical Awards
  • Compensation for permanent disability
  • Dependents’ recovery for worker’s death
  • Lost wages or salary
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Retraining costs

For additional information, visit the Virginia Workers’ Comp Commission. Benefits to which you may be entitled, include:

  • Total wages while out of work
  • Partial wages while out of work
  • Payment for permanent or partial disability
  • Payment for total or partial loss of use of certain body parts
  • Settlement of claims
  • Medical benefits and payment for treatment
  • Help to regain employment
  • Payment for mileage to and from medical providers

Don’t Be Fooled By the Insurance Company

They do not work for you. They are not on your side, they are not like a good neighbor…..you get the picture. Employees injured on the job often believe that if they are denied benefits by their employer’s insurance carrier, there is nothing they can do and often “give up”. Did I mention I give FREE CONSULTATIONS? I can assist you in successfully maneuvering through the complex bureaucratic process of forcing the workers’ comp insurance company to make sure your bills are paid and you are treated fairly.
