As Virginia workers’ compensation lawyers, we can tell you firsthand that getting approved for benefits after a work-related injury is rarely easy. The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission (VWCC) intentionally makes it difficult for workers to get approved to help reduce the risk of fraudulent claims, but in doing so, it causes many valid applications to fall through the cracks.
Why is it difficult? The biggest reason is because of how many forms need to be filled out and how closely the VWCC scrutinizes them. When it finds a single missing piece of information or questionable answer, it can put the brakes on your application. The best-case scenario at this point is that your application—and benefits—are halted for weeks or months, and the worst-case scenario is the VWCC denying your claim altogether.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we help injured workers build their applications from the ground up from day one. It’s our goal to help our clients avoid delays and denials as much as possible. Because we know exactly what the VWCC looks for when it reviews claims, we can significantly reduce the chances that it finds anything that might raise the alarm on your claim and result in more scrutiny and a longer time of your family not receiving benefits.
