As a hardworking, honest employee, you may be surprised to learn that insurance companies are not really on your side. But rest assured, workplace injury attorneys know full well that adjusters have an arsenal of tricky strategies to use against those who suffer workplace injuries. 

An attorney in the field of Virginia Workers’ Comp will be able to let you in on the “secrets” that insurance companies try to keep from you and inform you of all the Workers’ Comp laws you need to be aware of. 

There are 3 things that insurance companies often “forget” to tell injured workers: 

  • Benefits – adjusters won’t necessarily tell you about all the benefits you’re entitled to, hoping you’ll be ignorant of Workers’ Comp laws;
  • Time Limits – they may also fail to mention the statute of limitations and try to appease you in the short-term; they’ll run down the clock so you miss your opportunity to file a claim and collect compensation; and
  • Legal Counsel – adjusters also won’t tell you that if you were to hire a workplace injury attorney, you greatly increase your chances of obtaining a higher compensation package. 

It’s crucial not to remain in the dark about your rights if you’ve suffered an injury at work. If you were earning a good living in one of Richmond’s largest employers like Capital One Financial or VCU Health System and are now unable to return to work and earn a living for your family, it’s all the more important to make use of your available benefits. 

Fortunately, workplace injury attorneys are keen to Virginia Workers’ Comp insurance company tactics and will prevent you from being duped into reduced or dismissed claims.
