The Workers’ Compensation Process in Virginia

Gammon & Grange, P.C., has a strong record of successful outcomes in workplace injury cases in northern Virginia. Our attorneys are prepared to assist you through all stages and phases of a workers' compensation claim for benefits after an injury in an office, warehouse, construction site or work-related motor vehicle accident. Initial consultations are free, and we will represent you on a contingency basis.

Our attorneys' fees will come as a percentage of back workers' compensation benefits. It is no more costly to enlist our law firm in your workplace accident case than it would be to work with less experienced lawyers. Our 30 years of experience can smooth the way for you as you proceed through the processes of a successful workers' compensation claim:

  • Reporting your injury to your employer
  • Filing a claim with the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission (VWCC) — even if the employer has paid medical bills or replaced lost wages
  • Filing medical records with the VWCC
  • Appealing denied claims

In the case of an occupational disease, the statute of limitations clock starts ticking as soon as you have been diagnosed. Prompt action is always preferable over procrastination that could prove to be very costly in terms of potentially lost benefits.

Even if your employer and/or the employer's workers' compensation insurer initially accept your claim, be aware that you may face challenges at any future time. If you suffered a serious injury, your lifetime medical benefits could be at stake if you do not meet the state's requirements for filing your claim and medical records. For this reason, proper filing of your claim, including medical records per requirements of the state, with the VWCC, is essential.

For these reasons, you are wise to seek legal counsel after a serious work injury, even if your employer and/or the workers' compensation insurer attempts to reassure you that your work injury claims will be paid. Call Gammon & Grange, P.C., if you have been injured at work and want help protecting your right to all applicable workers' compensation benefits, including:

  • Lifetime medical benefits related to that injury
  • Wage loss replacement for temporary, total or partial disability
  • Permanent partial or total disability
  • Mileage reimbursement and cost-of-living increases as applicable
