Workers Comp Law
When a worker is injured while on the job, he or she should immediately report the injury to their employer and file a claim with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. The claim must be filed within two years after the accident occurs or the diagnosis of a work-related illness or disease (unless otherwise stated in the statute of limitations).
In many cases, you can also receive benefits for mental stress. You may be able to receive benefits for a pre-existing condition that worsened through work activities. You are also eligible to receive benefits for injuries that occur during company events and gathering.
