Workers’ Comp Benefits for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) in Virginia
The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that 65,000 American workers are forced to miss time because of job-related TBIs every year. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be devastating. In many cases, these injuries have long-term physical and/or physiological effects. All brain injuries require immediate medical attention. In many cases, brain injuries develop with a delayed onset. A head injury may be more severe than it initially appears.
It is imperative that injured workers and their families get the care and support that they need. Under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, a brain-injured worker may be entitled to medical benefits, payment for lost wages, and possibly a weekly check for his lifetime. This is called permanent total disability benefits. It is available if you will not be able to be gainfully employed due to your brain injury. Virginia’s workers’ comp insurance system pays no-fault benefits. Injured workers are not required to prove that their employer was to blame for their accident to recover benefits.
