Virginia Workers’ Compensation Benefits: Hand and Arm Injuries
An injury to your arm, hand, or finger can be completely debilitating. Whether you are working in an office, on a construction site, or anywhere in between, a hand/arm injury can make it extremely difficult, if not impossible to do your job. Arm, hand, and finger injuries come in a wide range of different forms. Some common examples include:
- Arm Injuries: Broken upper arm, broken lower arm, fractured wrist, ulnar nerve damage, significant muscle strains, elbow injuries, and shoulder injuries.
- Hand Injuries: Severe bruising, broken or fractured hand, crushed hand, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Finger Injuries: Broken finger, dislocated fingers, and finger amputation.
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act provides fault-free work injury benefits to employees in the Commonwealth. If you suffered an arm, hand, or finger injury while on the job in Virginia Beach, you can file for workers’ comp—you are not required to prove that your employer was negligent to get your claim approved. As a baseline, workers’ comp benefits cover appropriate medical treatment and time loss compensation. With a more serious (permanent) hand or arm injury, more compensation may be offered.
