A: Yes. The injured worker is always responsible for filing the claim for benefits with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. Even if your employer completes their own accident report and sends it to their insurance carrier, they are only required to notify the Commission that you were injured which is not the same as filing a claim for benefits. Remember, it is your responsibility to pursue your claim.
