Virginia Workers’ Comp: Total Disability Pension
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act provides much needed financial protection to people who were hurt on the job. As a starting point, benefits are available for all necessary medical care and lost wages for days missed at work. Unfortunately, in some cases, workers suffer severe injuries or impairments that make it impossible or unreasonable for them to return to work in any capacity.
Under Virginia Code § 65.2-503C, an injured employee may be entitled to permanent total disability benefits if their injuries or impairment are severe to the point that they cannot return to gainful employment. Similar to other forms of time loss compensation, permanent total disability benefits are calculated at two-thirds of a worker’s average weekly wage—subject to a maximum weekly benefit. These benefits are for your lifetime and are not capped at 500 weeks like temporary total disability benefits are.
For injured workers and their families, navigating the claims process after a catastrophic accident can be difficult. There are often complex questions that need to be resolved regarding medical evidence, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, and other issues. An experienced Richmond, VA workers’ comp lawyer can help you and your family maximize financial support.
