Workers' Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Fairfax, VA

Serving Workers in Fairfax, Woodbridge & the Counties of Fairfax & Prince William

When you have been injured at work, legal representation is highly recommended. You can bet that your employer and its insurance company have plenty of lawyers to give them legal advice. You are also entitled to legal counsel and guidance, which can significantly affect your claim's outcome.

At Law Office Of Andrew S. Kasmer, we have learned there is no such thing as a simple work accident. That is because you will be dealing with an insurance company that is in business to protect its interests and the interests of your employer. Insurers are not in the business of helping injured workers. 

Putting one of our attorneys on your side gives you the advantage of our decades of experience in this field, leading to record-setting outcomes. We know the ins and outs of workers’ compensation claims, how the system works, and how to help our clients get the compensation they deserve.

Your Journey to Justice Starts Here Our Workers' Compensation Services

Who Is Eligible for Workers’ Compensation in Virginia? 

The range of workers eligible is extensive, ensuring coverage for most individuals employed within the state. Specifically, Virginia law mandates that any business with three or more employees must provide workers' compensation insurance, encompassing various workers from diverse sectors. 

This includes full-time and part-time workers and, in certain situations, contractors and subcontractors who are injured or fall ill as a direct result of their employment. Eligibility for workers' comp benefits is not dependent on your fault or negligence, meaning that benefits are available regardless of who caused the job-related accident. However, injuries sustained outside employment or due to willful misconduct may not qualify for compensation.

Virginia Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Virginia's workers' compensation benefits offer crucial financial and medical assistance to employees who sustain injuries or illnesses as a direct result of their employment. 

These benefits encompass several key areas:

  • Medical benefits: Workers are entitled to full coverage for medical treatments related to their work injury or illness. This includes hospital visits, medical procedures, medications, rehabilitation services, and necessary medical devices. The goal is to ensure the injured worker receives the care required to achieve maximum medical recovery without incurring out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Income replacement and/or permanency benefits: Depending on the severity and duration of the work-related injury or illness, workers may be eligible for temporary total disability (TTD), temporary partial disability (TPD), permanent total disability (PTD), or permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits. These benefits are designed to compensate for lost wages resulting from the inability to work either temporarily or permanently due to the injury.
  • Death benefits: In the unfortunate event that an employee dies as a result of a job-related injury, Virginia's workers' compensation system provides death benefits to the surviving dependents. These benefits include a portion of the deceased worker's wages and coverage for funeral expenses, offering financial support during a challenging time.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: For workers unable to return to their former employment due to injuries, vocational rehabilitation benefits are available to help them re-enter the workforce. This can include job training, resume assistance, job search help, and sometimes education to qualify for a new occupation.

Injured workers and their families must be aware of these benefits to fully access the support offered by Virginia's workers' compensation system. The system aims to alleviate the immediate financial burden following a work-related injury or illness and provide the means for recovery and a return to gainful employment when possible.
