Workers' compensation overview
Our firm provides comprehensive help to people who have been injured in work-related accidents. In the workers' compensation system, it does not matter who was at fault for your injuries. If the accident occurred while you were on the job, you may apply for workers' compensation benefits. It is important to note that in Virginia, repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome are not covered by workers' compensation.
Unlike in personal injury and wrongful death cases, in a workers' compensation claim you cannot sue your employer or collect monetary damages for pain and suffering. Unless your on-the-job injury was caused by a third party, the workers' compensation process is your only means to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses.
Filing a workers' compensation claim may seem like a daunting process. Our lawyers provide the precise legal help injured workers need during this time. When you are unable to work and have lost your income, we can help you fight for the workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled. We will help you with all the initial paperwork and represent you at all hearings, as well as at any appeals that may be necessary.
In workers' compensation cases, we only collect attorneys' fees if we are successful in obtaining benefits for you. The amount we will receive is regulated by Virginia workers' compensation law and it will not substantially impact what you collect.
Freeman, Dunn, Alexander, Gay Lucy & Coates, PC 's success in helping clients obtain workers' compensation benefits is based on our knowledge of the law and our experience. We work side by side with our clients to gather evidence about the accident, document the medical treatment needed, and file all the paperwork needed to prepare or appeal your claim.
