Glen Allen Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Hampton Workers' Comp Lawyers

Dealing with a workplace injury may seem straightforward at first. Your employer responds with paperwork, and insurance adjusters call you for a recorded statement. While your employer’s workers’ compensation program was established to help employees pay for medical treatment, lost wages, and other expenses after an on-the-job injury– all too often it is difficult to get full compensation value. That’s why you need an aggressive workers’ comp law firm to fight for your rights. Our Glen Allen workers’ compensation lawyers have won thousands of cases for our clients over 60 years.

Worker’s compensation benefit amounts can increase each year with a cost of living adjustments (COLA).

Don’t Leave Money On The Table

With severe injuries and complex cases, there may be more than one party to hold responsible. Sometimes a third-party claim can be filed on top of the usual workers’ compensation claim to provide additional benefits for “pain and suffering.” You may have a valid personal injury lawsuit against another worker, another motorist who hit your vehicle, or equipment manufacturers. Rutter Mills can help you identify the scope of liability to determine how you should be compensated.

Tips for Navigating a Glen Allen Workers’ Compensation Claim

Fill out all paperwork right away, but don’t record a statement without an attorney. You must report a workplace injury in writing within 30 days (or within two years that a workplace incident caused you harm).

Barring an emergency, you may be required to see a particular health care provider who is authorized by the employer. However, if you feel you are not given an appropriate level of care and concern, you can request a second opinion. Many times, we have to be our own best advocates. Working with our focused Glen Allen workers’ comp lawyers, gives you another advocate to assess the medical attention you are receiving.

Get a school notebook and divided folder to keep all the records related to your claim organized. If you’re corresponding by email, print the emails and keep them in this folder as well. You can also include recent pay stubs verifying your pay rate, summaries of all medical appointments, medication scripts, work notes, and out-of-pocket receipts. A pocket calendar is a handy way to track all medical appointments. Be sure to include the mileage driven to and from your appointments, as this can be reimbursed at 55 cents per mile.

If your illness or injury results from the use of a defective product, piece of machinery, or toxic substance. Manufacturers, drivers, landowners, subcontractors, or others may be liable for what happened to you. It is important to assess the full scope of potential liability.

VET -David S.

I knew it would be a long hard road to get an award from the VA for my multiple disabilities. However, the process was made so much easier with Rutter Mills. I was kept informed and able to follow the decision making process with my claim at the VA. They were always available if I had any questions and responded promptly. I was able to obtain a 100% rating, and couldn’t be more pleased with how they handled things from start to finish. I would gladly recommend them to any vet facing a situation like mine.

Ridge W.

Gina Montgomery and Morgan Phipps did a phenomenal job with my case! I was involved in a car accident and they helped me get the proper care while I was waiting on my case to conclude and also worked very hard to win my case in the court room.

James A

I was hurt, lost, and defeated. RutterMills found doctors to relieve the pain, found a path that I could walk, and like a Phoenix, RutterMills rose me from the grave and restored my life with over $150,000 win. Thank you for being my guiding light.

Sarice G.

Mr. Young and Ms. Kathy Saunders went above and beyond for me. The day I walked into Mr. Young's office I thought there was no hope for my case and I would never be made whole. I can say two and a half weeks ago my case was settled above and beyond my expectations. After 4 long years I have finally been made whole. Thank you Mr. Young and Ms Kathy. You saved my life.

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.
