Virginia Workers’ Compensation Benefits: Shoulder Injuries
Shoulder pain can make it extremely difficult to perform otherwise routine activities. In some cases, that shoulder pain is the sign of a deeper structural problem that requires immediate medical attention. Without the proper care, a shoulder injury may become all the more severe. At Injured Workers’ Law Firm, our Fairfax workers’ compensation team helps employees in Northern Virginia with the full range of shoulder claims, including:
- A sprained shoulder;
- A strained shoulder;
- Shoulder separation or dislocations;
- Rotator cuff tears;
- Labral tears;
- Bicep tears;
- Shoulder cartilage problems; and
- Structural shoulder damage.
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act requires you to report your shoulder injury to your employer within 30 days. Failure to report an injury in time could undermine your ability to receive workers’ comp benefits. Make sure you notify your supervisor right away and get the proper medical attention and follow-up care for your shoulder injury. Under Virginia’s workers’ comp laws, an injured worker is entitled to a wide range of benefits, potentially including medical benefits, payment for lost wages, financial compensation for permanent loss of body members, vocational rehabilitation, and lifetime disability. The specific benefits available to you will depend on the nature and severity of your shoulder problems.
