YOU MAY HAVE FAITH THAT YOUR EMPLOYER IS THERE TO HELP YOU, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, YOU COULD BE SADLY MISTAKEN.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LINGO: DEFINED
TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT?
This refers to physical and mental disability that can prevent you from working for a short period of time. In the state of Virginia, the defined period of time is disability for no longer than 125 days. If it’s longer, you’ll likely receive permanent disability.
If you’ve been partially injured on the job, this means you can still perform a portion of your daily tasks or all of your daily tasks, but for only a certain amount of time. Injuries for partial disability can be both permanently or temporarily impairing.
With an injury that results from total disability, you are not able to perform any of your job's tasks. Some injuries can be "partial" for some jobs and "total" for others. For example, a construction worker is likely to be more impacted by a broken leg than an office worker.

TYPES OF BENEFITS YOU MAY RECEIVE
VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION BENEFITS
These are available for people that require assistance in returning to their former job or a similar position with a different employer. Speak to an attorney to see if you qualify for vocational rehabilitation benefits.
Your employer and their insurer have the responsibility to pay reasonable and necessary medical care and any relevant prescriptions or physical therapy expenses for injuries that occurred on their watch or on their property. If not, call us today.
WAGE REPLACEMENT BENEFITS
Healing takes time, and you shouldn’t have to worry about keeping a roof over your head while you recover. Wage replacement benefits depend on how badly your injury is and how long you’ll be away from work.
