Personal Injury Claims: What You Need to Know
If you do decide to file a permanent injury claim in Virginia, you donâ€™t have to prove that anyone was at fault, or even that your employer was negligent.
But injury lawsuit settlements arenâ€™t won by simply saying, â€śI was injured.â€ť
In order to be covered under the Act, you must have been injured under its terms, that is, you must have suffered the injury at work or during a work-related function.
Your permanent injury claim also must have been as a result of a specific work activity and it must have happened at a specific time, not over time. (So if youâ€™re hoping to file work injury claims due to repetitive stress or traumas, youâ€™ll have a very hard time winning.)
As an example, letâ€™s say you wrench your back lifting a heavy object. That claim likely will be covered. But if you lift heavy objects for weeks at a time and slowly develop back pain, your injury probably wonâ€™t be covered.
Protecting Your Rights
If youâ€™ve been injured on the job, you have rights under the Virginia Workerâ€™s Compensation Act. The process of applying for temporary or permanent injury compensation under the Act is a complicated one and you should be sure that you choose an attorney who has extensive experience in permanent injury claims like yours.
Your employer will work hard to limit your recovery or even get your claim dismissed entirely.
Arm yourself with a personal injury lawyer who will defend your rights so that you can get the justice and compensation you deserve.
