Workers’ Compensation Laws Explained
The basic principle behind workers’ compensation across the United States is that employers are protected from being sued by their employees in exchange for providing employees that have sustained job-related injuries payments according to a schedule set by a statute.
If your place of work has three or more employees, then your employer is required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance in Virginia. The payments the injured employee receives depends on what part of the body is injured and whether it is classified as a temporary partial, temporary total, permanent partial or permanent total injury.
Theoretically, the workers’ compensation offered in Virginia should be a no-fault form of insurance. However, since the 1980s, payouts for workers’ compensation have been declining. Employees now face a ton of scrutiny, with employers hoping to find a way to deny you the money you deserve.
The reason you need an attorney to represent you after a job-related injury is to make sure that your settlement is fair. Depending on your injury, you may deserve all your lost wages and receive coverage for your medical bills. Depending on your employer, they may outright deny any claims, leaving you to pay everything out of pocket without a steady source of income.
