Getting Approved for Workers’ Compensation Benefits Can Be Difficult

by actuate | November 19th, 2018

The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission is the state regulatory body in charge of approving and administering benefits to people who get hurt or sick on the job and can’t go back to work. Employees whose health prevents them from working often need these benefits to pay for their living expenses, yet the approval process can be difficult.

In addition to the commission’s strict standards for approving claims, many workers dealing with injuries or illnesses also find that their employers are either unhelpful or even actively working against them in their pursuit of benefits. That’s because almost all employers in Virginia are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and every claim they receive can cause their fees to increase.
