After an injury, report the incident to your supervisor as soon as possible. Unless the situation is an emergency, an injured worker must visit a doctor approved by the employer’s insurance company.

001

Within 30 days, you must notify the employer, in writing, about the accident. The notification must include details such as the time, place, and nature of the injury.  The injured employee must file a claim with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission within two years. Failure to follow this process can result in the claim being barred.

Reasons for Denial

While failing to follow the correct procedure results in denial, there are other reasons as well. Sometimes, an inadvertent statement on the claim is given as a reason for denial, even though the worker has a good case. An injured person may state they did not feel pain right after the accident, which is not uncommon.

Many musculoskeletal injuries may not become apparent for 24 hours or more, but some insurance companies may consider the lack of “instant” pain a reason for denial. Workers’ compensation regulations are complicated, and insurers count on many injured employees becoming too intimidated to fight a claim denial.

Deltaville Workers’ comp lawyers can ensure that your documentation is filed properly and on time and will protect your rights against the insurance company.

 

Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act Benefits

Each state has its own rules regarding workers’ compensation benefits. In Virginia, such benefits may include:

  • Replacement of wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Permanent and total disability payments

Workplace injuries or illnesses may result in death. Eligible family members may receive death benefits from workers’ compensation.

At Rutter Mills,
every case is a serious case-because it's your case.
