Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney Representing Virginia Employees
When you get hurt on the job, you need the assistance of an effective workers’ compensation lawyer to guide you through the process of claiming your benefits. Armentrout Accident & Injury Law represents injured workers in workers’ compensation claims. We will help you get the benefits to which you are entitled.
Whether or not your workers’ compensation claim was denied, it is always wise to consult with an experienced workplace injury lawyer. When it comes to workers’ compensation matters, your employer is under no obligation to advise you of your rights or to watch out for your interests. That is precisely why we are here to ensure that you get paid the proper amount and receive all other suitable benefits under existing compensation laws.
Understanding Your Benefits
An injury that occurs in the workplace imposes several duties upon the employer, including:
- Payment of medical expenses
- Payment of wage loss benefits
- Payment of partial/permanent disability benefits
- Provision of vocational rehabilitation
Time is of the Essence
In the event of a work-related injury, it is usually in your best interest to file a claim as soon as possible. The law provides a time limit of only 30 days from the date of your accident during which you can file a claim. For a medical condition that has resulted over time, you must report it as soon as you become aware of it or have seen a doctor who diagnosed it.
We will advise you about all applicable limitations and help you navigate through the process from beginning to end. We will also represent you in the hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Commission, as well as the appeal to the Virginia Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, if necessary.
