Isle of Wight Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers Compensation Lawyers

Workplace injuries happen every day. Under Virginia law, most Isle of Wight County employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, just because your employer carries it does not mean your claim is guaranteed to be successful. Most insurance companies care about their bottom line, and denying claims is an important part of their business model.

Getting Help Is Your Right

After a workplace injury, it is understandable if you have questions. You hear conflicting advice; while loved ones could pressure you to seek additional care, your employer might be pushing you to return to work before you are ready. To protect your legal rights, it is in your best interest to discuss your case with seasoned workers’ compensation attorneys. At Rutter Mills, we know that you have questions, and we look forward to answering them. At the end of your consultation, there is no obligation to go any further with our firm.

Contact our team of Isle of Wight County workers’ compensation lawyers today.

Attempting to handle your own workers’ compensation claim is risky. Rutter Mills has more than 60 years of experience taking on the insurance companies and winning benefits for our clients. To discuss how we can help you, call to schedule your free consultation right away.

Compensatable Injuries

Workers’ compensation insurance policies only cover certain injuries for obvious reasons. The system was designed to provide benefits for workers injured on the job, meaning benefits are only available for injuries that occur within the scope of your employment. These injuries must have occurred while working or have their origin traced back to the workplace regardless of when the symptoms appear.

The law offers some flexibility in this area given the nature of workplace injuries. For example, injuries that do not occur at the workplace are covered as long as you were performing work duties. For example, a traveling salesperson on the way to an appointment could have a viable claim if they are injured in a vehicle accident on the way.

Alternatively, not every injury that occurs on company property will be covered. Injuries that occur due to horseplay do not qualify for compensation benefits. Neither do injuries that occur during a lunch break, even if you are at your place of business. These rules are complex and are best explained during a consultation with experienced Isle of Wight workers’ comp lawyers.

Dont make it harder than it needs to be. Choose Rutter Mills! I had never needed to contact an attorney, it was all new to me and I was in pain from being rear ended while at a stop light. I did like most and checked reviews. I called Rutter Mills and not for one second did I ever doubt my decision. I had the pleasure of working with attorney Andrew Boran and his paralegal Kathy Saunders. They were there for me every step of the way. Extremely understanding and knowledgeable. They stayed in touch with me and went to bat for me. I highly recommend them to anyone. Don't make it harder than it needs to be on yourself, CALL RUTTER MILLS NOW!

I was injured in a accident & was rejected by 2 law offices that said it was my fault even though I was hit from behind. Rutter Mills got the job done. They had police testify and a witness. I was impressed with how thoroughly they got results. If you want a true dedicated firm that get you results this is it - hands down - Rutter Mills!

Linda D.

I would like to think everyone at Rutter Mills for their wonderful service. Everyone from Christine to Melanie, Catherine and of course Dan. Catherine and Dan worked very hard on my case and looked out for my best interest. I never called an update as I was kept current. They’re truly an asset to the law firm. If I could give addition stars I would.
