Virginia Beach Workers’ Comp Lawyers

Being injured is never easy, but being injured on the job can be even more challenging. Not only do you have medical bills to contend with, but you may also be off the job during your recovery, which can lead to lost earnings. If this is the situation you find yourself in, don’t wait to reach out to an experienced Virginia Beach workers’ comp lawyer for the help you need. 

Your Employer’s Obligation

Virginia law dictates that every employer with more than three employees covers them with workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation claims are unique because they do not address the matter of negligence, and in the process, both parties give up something in exchange for the benefits offered. Consider the following:

  • Employees are covered for illnesses and injuries that are work-related, but their compensation is less comprehensive than it would be in a personal injury claim. 
  • Employers are required to cover their employees, but the threat of facing negligence-based lawsuits is removed. 

Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

In order to bring a workers’ compensation claim, you will need to prove that your injury is job-related – meaning that you were injured either while you were at work or in the course of performing your job. In such instances, you can seek compensation that covers the following losses:

  • Your reasonable and necessary medical costs
  • Any losses in terms of income, which can extend to either temporary or permanent disability

Obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled can play a pivotal role in your ability to reach your fullest recovery. 

How a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Can Help

Even though your employer is required to carry workers’ comp insurance for all employees, this does not guarantee that you will receive the compensation to which you are entitled. The insurance company is a for-profit business that does what it can to keep settlements low, which makes standing up for your legal rights paramount. A knowledgeable workers’ comp attorney can help in all of the following ways:

  • Gathering the evidence necessary to demonstrate the extent of your losses and to demonstrate that your injury or illness is work-related, which is not always a straightforward matter 
  • Creating your strongest claim 
  • Communicating with the insurance company on your behalf (you can count on the insurance rep who is handling your claim to be skilled at obtaining damaging statements from vulnerable claimants like you) 
  • Skillfully negotiating with the insurance company for your just compensation.
  • Helping you make the best decisions for you in your unique situation – in regard to moving your case forward toward a beneficial resolution
