What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation insurance covers medical expenses related to the injury. These include bills for hospitalization, medication, medical tests, physical therapy, purchasing prosthetics, and other medical expenses. Workers are also compensated for the mileage covered when traveling to and from the healthcare provider. Workers’ compensation benefits also cover a portion (2/3) of your wages if you have had to miss work for at least seven days.
If your loved one died as a result of the injuries suffered in a workplace accident, you can recover death benefits.
Workers’ compensation does not cover all damages suffered as a result of the injuries suffered in a workplace accident. You can seek additional compensation by filing a third-party claim against any party that may have been responsible for the accident outside of your employer. For example, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of defective equipment that caused your injuries.
Unlike workers’ compensation claims, third-party claims are fault-based claims. You will therefore have to prove fault and demonstrate negligence on the part of the third party. Attorney Drew Page can help with this. He is an experienced Virginia workplace injury lawyer with a skilled and experienced team. Our team will investigate your claim to identify any third parties that may have caused the accident. We will develop evidence and build a strong claim on your behalf. You can rely on us for the best outcome in your case.

Frequently Asked Questions about Work Accidents in Virginia
If you are an employee and were injured at work or while carrying out work-related tasks your employer is obligated by law to pay workers’ compensation to cover damages resulting from the accident. However, many employers and insurance companies that represent them resist paying compensation and suffer losses. It is, therefore, important to protect your right to compensation. You can do this by:
1. Getting medical attention as soon as possible after the accident
2. Reporting the incident to your employer as soon as possible. Virginia law requires workers to report accidents to their employers within 30 days of the incident to qualify for workers’ compensation.
3. Gather evidence from the scene of the accident, including names and contact information of witnesses; photos of the scene; and your injuries, including torn pieces of clothing or damaged safety gear.
4. Consult with an experienced Virginia workplace injury lawyer to understand your rights and options.
All employers in Virginia are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If your employer does not have a workers’ compensation policy, they violate the law. They can be charged for this and be penalized by the state. However, these penalties will not pay for your medical bills and other damages suffered as a result of your injuries.
If you find yourself in this situation, contact Attorney Drew Page to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable work accident attorney in Suffolk, VA. We will review your case and identify alternative options to recover the compensation you deserve. We will work to ensure justice is served.
