On-the-job injuries affect hundreds of workers every year. While some workers will get medical treatment and then be able to quickly return to work, others will be left with serious disabilities that may be permanent. Regardless of the severity of injury, if you are hurt while performing a work-related task and need medical care or have to miss work, you are probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
If you are an employee in the state of Virginia, then you are probably covered under workers’ compensation insurance. In fact, state law mandates that most employers carry workers’ compensation insurance; exceptions to this mandate are for businesses with fewer than two employees.
The great thing about workers’ compensation insurance is that it is a no-fault system. This means that regardless of why your accident occurred, you do not need to prove that anyone acted with fault or negligence. It also means that you can recover benefits even if you contributed to or caused the accident resulting in your injuries.
If you are injured on the job, there are a number of types of benefits that workers’ compensation insurance provides. These include:
While most employers are required under law to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and most employees in Virginia are entitled to benefits when they are injured on the job, the truth is, employees are not always paid the compensation they deserve. Employers or insurance companies may deny claims to save money, or may even retaliate against an employee who files a claim.
