For many Virginia workers, the onset of winter means increased traffic hassles and delays during the daily commute. The stakes are much higher for employees whose job sites are the Great Outdoors. The weather can be hazardous and unpredictable, making workplace accidents a common occurrence. Though the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established safety recommendations and preparedness tips for employers, weather-related factors can still lead to severe injuries for workers.
If you were hurt in a workplace accident, a Virginia workers’ compensation attorney can explain your rights under state law. Plus, while it is not possible to forecast the weather with complete accuracy, it may help to know some of the top threats that may affect your job.
Employees who are injured in on-the-job accidents have rights under Virginia workers’ compensation laws, whether the cause is weather or some other safety threat. If you are eligible, you can file a claim to obtain amounts for your medical bills, lost wages, and other monetary benefits. To learn more, please call Hampton Injury Law PLC to set up a complimentary case evaluation. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can review your circumstances and assist with the claims process.
