Getting The Decision Right
Many people with legitimate work injuries have difficulty getting the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. Following all the right steps — such as reporting the injury promptly and providing medical evidence that it prevents you from working — is sometimes not enough.
If you have run into a problem with a workers’ compensation claim, you should seek qualified legal counsel as soon as possible. Workers’ compensation insurance companies do not have the final say on claim denials or terminations of benefits. Many such decisions can be successfully overturned by taking the matter before the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.
