Workers Comp Lawyers

An injury occurring while on the job is handled very differently than one that happens in your free time. In Virginia, almost every employer must carry workers’ compensation coverage for its employees. Even if your job is only part-time, you are still covered.

If you were hurt while on the job, the Courtland workers’ comp law firm at Rutter Mills can help. We have a proud 60-year history of defending workers whose claims were initially denied by the employer’s insurance company.

0 / 0

Workers’ compensation was designed so injured workers did not have to prove that an employer was negligent, as may occur in standard personal injury cases, or that any party was at fault. When the system works correctly, the injured employee has their medical expenses covered by their employer’s insurance company and receives either temporary or permanent disability payments.

001

Unfortunately, the system often does not work correctly. The large insurance companies providing employer coverage want to protect their bottom line and may deny rightful claims or allege that a work-related illness or injury is less severe than it is. An employer may try to intimidate a worker into not filing a workers’ compensation claim, perhaps by threatening to fire the individual or by cutting work hours and demotions.

002

What to do after an injury

If you are injured while on the job, you must follow proper procedures. First, tell your supervisor about the injury immediately. While workers’ comp regulations require using an insurance company-approved healthcare provider, that is not true in an emergency.

Make sure you formally report the injury to your employer in writing within 30 days. Provide all relevant details, including the nature of the injury or illness, and the date and place in which it happened. Failure to do so can jeopardize your workers’ comp claim. If your employer does not receive your written report within the time limit, they do not have to pay for your medical bills.

There is a two-year statute of limitations on filing the claim with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.

every case is a serious case-because it's your case.

Victor B.

What I loved about my Rutter Mills experience was the team approach they provided from start to finish. The paralegal Selena D. was always keeping me updated and accurately collecting information to make sure my case was on a strong foundation. My attorney, Adam Lotkin raises the bar to the highest standard. Adam's knowledge, experience, and grit afforded me the strongest settlement in my case. Top 1% settlement is the best way to describe it. Your attorney matters and I am so glad I choose Rutter Mills, Adam Lotkin, and team to represent my case. I will use Rutter Mills again for my future needs.

Chris I.

I can't praise Rutter Mills law firm enough Catherine Foster is not only a great paralegal handling my lawsuit with my lawyer Dan Dallia I truly consider her like family.So many times I was depressed and in pain and she would talk me through it encouraging me to be strong.She is also going through a lot like myself and completely understands and is able to show compassion a fully healthy healthy person couldn't.The discovery she provided me amazed me,and was so thorough very professional.I consider her my friend for life!

Christine M

Shelley was with us from start to finish with our case. She explained everything to us that we did not understand. Very patient if we had a question. If she did not know it, found out the answer and got back with us. She went above and beyond to help us with everything.

Daniel M

Adam Lotkin, Max Baker, and the team behind them are amazing people. They did a great job with communicating and explaining each step of the process and they do the absolute best in ensuring their clients are taken care of. For my case in specific, we expected to wait 2 year to settle l, but through the team’s hard work and a little luck, it was settled in less than a year. I would not hesitate to come back to them if I ever needed to.
