Your job is your livelihood. You take pride in what you do, but will your employer protect you if you get hurt on shift? Unfortunately, many employers will do just about anything to avoid dealing with workers’ compensation claims after their workers get hurt on the job, and that includes denying that their injuries ever happened.
Even if your employer cooperates with you after you suffer an injury, you need to face yet another hurdle: the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. It reviews all workers’ compensation claims, and it has strict criteria for approving them. Countless injured workers see their applications get reduced or denied due to minor oversights or for seemingly no reason at all.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we know how important workers’ compensation benefits are. Like all states, Virginia requires almost all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, as it’s the only income injured and sick workers receive when they suffer health problems from their job that leave them unable to work. But having insurance doesn’t mean much if the affected workers themselves don’t have access to those benefits.
It’s important to get an experienced Virginia workers’ compensation lawyer on your side immediately after your workplace injury. The sooner you contact us, the better, as we’ll have access to more evidence and have more time to build your claim and complete your application. Trust our experience and track record of success—we’ve helped many people just like you get the benefits they deserve. Call today for a free consultation.
