You’ve never been in this situation before. You have never been hurt on a construction site, and you have never wondered how you are going to pay your bills and afford the medical care that you need to recover. Your friends and relatives are telling you that you should be able to get a financial recovery for your accident injuries, but you aren’t sure how to go about it or what that recovery may look like.
What You Need to Know about Your Possible Recovery
While you are sure that your friends and relatives are telling you the truth and that you can recover for your injuries, it is important to know some details about your possible recovery. For example, it is important to know that:
- You may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Virginia workers’ compensation may allow you to recover for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost income.
- You may be able to recover even if you were at fault. Workers’ comp is a no-fault insurance, which means that you may be able to recover even if you caused the accident that resulted in your injuries.
- Different rules, and recovery amounts, may apply if your injury was caused by the negligent or deliberate actions of a different employer. You may be able to recover additional damages, such as compensation for pain and suffering and the full amount of your lost income if another employer caused your injuries.
A Virginia construction accident attorney can help you understand how these, and other, rules apply to your recovery.
