Serious injuries may be entitled to total disability benefits

Lifetime benefits.  In some very serious situations, an injured worker may be able to get permanent total disability benefits.  The employee must have permanently lost the use of both hands, both arms, both feet, both legs, both eyes, or a combination thereof, or suffered any injury that results in total paralysis or a brain injury which is so severe that it leaves the employee permanently unable to find gainful employment. Workers’ Compensation laws in Virginia will protect those who have these serious injuries.
