How You May Still Recover Even if Your Virginia Workers’ Compensation Claim Is Denied

You’ve received the letter that made your difficult situation even worse. The insurance company is not going to provide you with fair compensation for your Virginia workers’ compensation claim. The letter says that the insurance company is going to pay you an amount lower than you deserve or, worse, that the insurance company does not need to pay you at all for the injuries that you sustained at work. Now you are left with physical pain, without fair financial compensation, and you are likely scared and frustrated.

Your Story Is Not Over; You May Still Have Options to Recover for Your Work Injury

Our Warrenton workers’ compensation lawyers understand that you have suffered a significant setback, but we want you to know that you still have options. Your fair financial recovery is still possible, but you will have to advocate for the recovery that you deserve. To that end, you might be able to:

  • File an appeal or your workers’ comp denial. The first review need not be the final review. You may file an appeal and request a hearing. You should expect that the insurance company will be represented by a lawyer at this hearing. You also have the right to be represented by counsel.
  • File a claim against a third party. Not all work-related injuries are resolved through workers’ compensation insurance. For example, if a defective product caused your injury, you could have a claim against the product manufacturer. 

You don’t have to do this alone.
