Please contact Hampton Workers’ Comp to schedule a free consultation about your claim right away.

You may also find it useful to review some answers to common questions about construction accidents in Virginia.

What Should I do After Being Injured in a Construction Accident?

You should seek medical care immediately after the incident. If your injuries require emergency care, head straight to the ER. However, you are required to visit a physician approved by your employer for non-emergency situations. When you are able, report the construction accident on forms provided by your employer. Include as much detail as possible.

How do I Know if I am Eligible for Workers’ Comp Benefits in Virginia?

You must meet certain requirements to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, such as:

  • You must work for an employer with two or more employees, which triggers the requirement to carry workers’ comp insurance;
  • You must be a covered worker, as opposed to an independent contractor or exempt employee;
  • Your injuries must result from a construction accident that occurred while you were performing on-the-job tasks.

What Types of Benefits can I Receive After a Construction Accident?

You may be entitled to such benefits as medical costs, lost wages, and temporary or permanent disability. You may also qualify for Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) and vocational rehabilitation if you must change jobs because of your injuries. If you lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be able to receive death benefits under workers’ compensation laws.

Why Would the Workers’ Comp Insurance Company Deny My Claim?

In some cases, the insurer may reject your claim for good reason, such as not qualifying under the strict eligibility rules. However, there may be questionable grounds to deny payment of benefits, such as when the workers’ compensation insurance company claims that:

  • You were not actually at work or performing job-related tasks;
  • Your injuries are not as severe as you claim; or,
  • You do not truly suffer from physical limitations that make you unable to work.

Do I Need to Hire an Attorney to Represent Me?

You are not legally required to retain representation, but a lawyer can be tremendously helpful. Especially when dealing with denials, an attorney will fight for your rights to the benefits you deserve by law. If it becomes necessary to take your claim to the next level, your lawyer will pursue all available legal remedies to protect your interests.
