Benefits of Workers’ Compensation
Virginia Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Although no one hopes to need workers’ compensation, it is comforting to know that you are covered in case you are seriously injured at work. Nearly every employer in Virginia is required to carry some form of workers’ compensation insurance, which means that you can file a claim as long as your injury occurred on the job. The benefits involved can be extremely helpful during your recovery and can include:
- Medical benefits – Injuries require medical attention that can rack up overwhelming bills in a short amount of time. By filing for workers’ compensation, you can obtain some or full compensation for your medical bills.
- Rehabilitation benefits – Some of the more serious work-related injuries may require rehabilitation in order for you to recover quickly and get back to work. Workers’ compensation can help pay for your rehabilitation and physical therapy.
- Disability benefits – Perhaps your occupational illness or injuries are so severe that you will be unable to return to work for at least 12 months, if at all. You may be eligible to receive temporary partial disability, temporary total disability, permanent total disability, or permanent partial disability benefits to cover your medical bills and lost wages.
- Death benefits – In the unfortunate event of a fatal work accident, the surviving family members may be able to obtain compensation for their loss and the damages that result, such as burial expenses and loss of income.
Filing a claim can be difficult and requires accurate and timely paperwork. If you don’t provide all of the correct information, or you file past the deadline, you can face a denial of workers’ compensation benefits. Don’t let this happen to you.
