Virginia Workers' Compensation Attorney Fighting for Injured Workers for 30 Years

With three decades of legal experience to our name, we have an in-depth knowledge of this area of the law. We have experience in dealing with insurance companies and will fight to receive the compensation you need to move forward after a work accident. It is not worth the risk to go at it alone knowing that the insurance company has lawyers advising it behind the scenes.

Our law firm has handled workers' compensation cases involving amputations, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, herniated discs, loss of vision and hearing, arm and shoulder injuries, fractures, knee derangements, and ankle injuries. We have also assisted surviving family members in filing a wrongful death claim when their loved one died tragically while working.

With our help, you may be eligible to receive the following benefits:

  • Temporary wage replacement - You are entitled to two-thirds of your gross average weekly wages (to a set maximum limit) once you've been unable to work for seven days. If able to return to work at a lower wage, you are entitled to two-thirds of the difference between current and previous wages.
  • Lifetime medical benefits - You are entitled to medical care to treat your injury or illness as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Your employer gets some power in determining your physician.
  • Permanent partial impairment - You may be eligible for separate compensation if you have suffered the loss of the use of a specific body part / sense, such as the use of a foot or hand, or the loss of vision or hearing.
  • Permanent total disability - Lifetime wage replacement benefits may be available if you suffered tremendous physical loss (the loss of both eyes, the loss of a hand and a foot) in a single work accident. The benefits also may be available if you suffered traumatic brain injury.
  • Death benefits - You may be eligible for wage benefits and funeral expenses (up to $11,000) if you lost a spouse in a workplace accident. Dependent children also may file for death benefits.
  • Cost of living increase - If you are receiving temporary total, permanent total, or death benefits, you must request a cost of living increase - it is not automatically available.
