Benefits after a Workplace Injury in Virginia

If you’ve been hurt in a workplace injury, you’re entitled to certain benefits through a Workers’ Compensation claim. If you’ve been hurt, whatever the circumstances, a Virginia work comp attorney can help you determine the best course of action that’ll provide for your medical expenses and day-to-day needs while you’re in recovery.

Benefits after a Workplace Injury 

There are benefits for which you’ll be eligible after a workplace injury: 

  • Lost wages/temporary total disability benefit are paid to injured employees who are taken out of work by their attending physician. These are equivalent to two-thirds of your average weekly wage for a period of no greater than 500 weeks (about 9 and a half years).
  • Medical expenses pertaining to your injury.
  • Permanent partial disability benefits, such as if you lose the use or a portion of the use of a part of your body.
  • Vocational rehabilitation if you’re able to return to light work.
  • Death benefits for your family if you should die as a result of your job, including funeral expenses and 500 weeks of two-thirds your weekly wage.
  • If you’re injured and become permanently and totally incapacitated, you’re eligible for lifetime compensation benefits.  

If you suffer a workplace injury, contact a Virginia work comp attorney who can get you on track with your workers’ compensation claim.
