If not, you should visit the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission and read what rights you have. This can help you understand who and what you are up against when you file your claim.
If you don’t know what your rights are, you may accept anything the insurance carrier or their attorney tells you without knowing what is going on and the fact that you are being taken advantage of. Remember, knowledge is power! If you have read some of the details of the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, you can avoid signing documents that you shouldn’t or accepting whatever the comp insurance carrier may offer to you.
If you or someone you know is having trouble receiving workers’ compensation, please call Rutter Mills for a free review of your case.
