I get several calls a week from injured workers wanting to know who makes these harsh workers compensation laws and who they can contact about this. The workers compensation laws of Virginia are made by your elected officials at the General Assembly. To find out who your elected official is, visit the General Assembly website here and click on the link “Who is my Legislature?”
Working as an attorney in Virginia, I am bound by the laws of the State – meaning that I have to work within the laws set forth by the state of Virginia. I do not have the power to change the laws– but YOU DO! Write to your State Representatives! Let them know how this system has impacted your life and the hardships you have faced because of it! Make some noise!
Virginians need to stand together and be heard. It will not be an easy fight and nothing will happen overnight but the more people who stand up and let the State of Virginia know that the workers compensation system is flawed, the closer we may get to correcting this broken system!
If you would like more information on the Virginia workers compensation system, order my book, “The Ultimate Guide to Workers’ Compensation in Virginia” by clicking this link, or call our office today (804) 755-7755.
