The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act provides protection and compensation for individuals injured on the job. It is administered by the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.
The law covers workers for accidental injuries and for occupational diseases. If an injury is covered under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, the employee may recover benefits including wage benefits and payment of related medical expenses. Permanent injury is also compensable.
An experienced attorney is necessary to protect your interests and to make sure you properly preserve your claim.

These cases often include severe head injuries and death cases.
