WORKERS' COMPENSATION WAS STARTED TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AS A WORKER
The Workers' Compensation program was designed to protect the rights of injured workers. If you are injured or made sick while on the job, your employer’s workman’s compensation insurance may have to compensate you for your injury. By law you are entitled to two-thirds of your pre-injury average weekly wage for the time you are out of work, and medical treatment for the injury for life. If you injury is permanent, meaning that it will never fully heal, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL TRY WHATEVER THEY CAN TO NOT PAY YOUR FOR YOUR INJURIES
In theory, under the Workers' Compensation program an injured worker doesn’t have to worry about anything except recuperating. In reality, you may be faced with many obstacles, which is why you need the help of an experienced Virginia workers' compensation attorney, like the ones at Rutter Mills. Our Norfolk and Roanoke based Workers' Compensation Lawyers are standing by to offer you a free consultation to help you begin your fight to get the compensation you deserve.
THE WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROCESS IS A COMPLICATED ONE
The workers' compensation program requires many different forms and deadline requirements before you can get the money you need to support your family. It is in your employer’s and your employer’s insurance company’s best interest for your claim to be filed incorrectly or denied. They are under no obligation to tell you about the different forms you have to file or deadlines you have to meet. They can challenge your claim, even by saying that you were intoxicated when the accident happened. They can also challenge the judge’s decision, forcing you to go through an extremely complicated appeals process. The best way to avoid these complications is to have the help and guidance of a skilled workers’ comp lawyer in Hampton Roads or across Virginia looking out for your best interests.
