How Does Workers’ Compensation Help Injured Workers in Virginia?
Workers’ Compensation protects employees if they are injured at work, regardless of the circumstances.
In Virginia, an employee who sustains an injury at work is eligible to collect Workers’ Compensation benefits if the injury they sustained on the job was work related.
Workers’ Compensation insurance can cover medical bills, ongoing care, missed wages, disability, and more.
Even if the employee reported the accident to their employer and is receiving benefits, they must report the accident to the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission within two years of the accident.
