Your paycheck is your livelihood, and there’s nothing more frustrating than having it taken away from you because of an injury you suffered at work.
Most employers in Virginia are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to help their employees if they become injured or develop illnesses while they’re on the job. But some employers are reluctant to approve workers’ compensation claims, and it can be difficult to get approval from the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission when you apply for benefits on your own.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk workers’ compensation lawyers are dedicated to fighting for the rights of people like you who can’t work for the foreseeable future because of on-the-job incidents. Your employer was supposed to provide adequate protection and safety measures for you, and their workers’ compensation coverage is supposed to give you the money you need to pay for your living expenses.
Don’t take no for an answer from either your employer or the workers’ compensation commission. You have rights, and we can uphold them for you. The longer you wait to get legal representation, the more difficult it may be for your claim to be approved. That’s because evidence can disappear and your claim may be viewed with more suspicion.
