Workers’ compensation gives injured workers a lifeline when they get injured on the job and can’t earn the paychecks they and their loved ones depend on. And while the requirements for getting workers’ compensation seem simple—suffer an on-the-job injury or illness that results in medical bills and/or lost wages—many injured workers see their claims denied.
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission (VWCC) has strict requirements when reviewing and approving claims, and it’s common for first-time applicants to be denied. Reasons for claim denials can range from missing forms and incomplete paperwork to a lack of evidence and missed deadlines. It can be hard to keep up with all of the requirements for filing a successful claim, especially when you’re stressed and in pain after getting hurt at work.
