3 reasons why you deserve compensation for your injury
Some workers who have been injured on the job are reluctant to file for workers’ compensation
out of a perceived loyalty to their company. But it’s really your company’s responsibility to provide you with safe working conditions. Here are some reasons why you should file for workers’ compensation:
- Workers compensation provides for lifetime medical benefits. You’ll avoid rising medical costs. You simply can’t afford not to file for workers’ compensation after your on-the-job injury. If you're disabled from work you'll need wage loss benefits quickly
- You’ll have an affordable attorney. Attorney fees for workers’ compensation cases in Virginia are regulated by the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission.
- You may have a ratable permanent injury for which you would be entitled to additional cash benefits.
