Neck Injuries, Back Injuries, and Workers’ Comp Benefits in Virginia
A serious neck or back injury can be wholly debilitating. You may be required to miss work for weeks, months, or even longer. It is crucial that injured workers receive the immediate emergency care and ongoing rehabilitative treatment that they need to make a full recovery. Among other types of neck and back injuries, our Virginia Beach workers’ comp lawyers can help you with:
- Neck Injuries: Cervical vertebrae fractures, neck sprains, neck strains, pinched nerve injuries, spondylosis and other forms of arthritis, and whiplash injuries.
- Back Injuries: Herniated disc, bulging disc, compression fracture, sciatica nerve injuries, lumbar spine damage, spinal stenosis, spinal degeneration, and muscle strains.
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act is the primary state law governing on-the-job injuries. The statute requires virtually all employers in the Commonwealth to provide no-fault insurance coverage to their employees. In practice, this means that you do not have to prove an employer’s wrongdoing to recover workers’ comp benefits for a neck or back injury. Though, workers do have important responsibilities. You should notify your supervisor of your injury right away and seek immediate medical treatment.
