Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Workplace Injury?

by admin@gotechark.com | December 25th, 2017

Getting hurt at work can change your life in an instant. In addition to causing severe pain and even disability, it can also leave you unable to do your job for weeks, months, or even the rest of your life. Almost all workplaces in Virginia are required to have workers’ compensation insurance in case their employees get hurt or sick on the job and are unable to return to work. But sometimes, those employees don’t get the benefits they deserve.

Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers knows how complex the Virginia workers’ compensation system can be and how often innocent employees are rejected from getting the benefits they need. Applying on your own can put your family’s future at risk, as a denial can mean months of waiting and no guarantee of approval even upon appeal.
