You didn’t suffer a life-threatening or lifelong injury, and for that, you are grateful. However, if you have broken an arm, leg, rib, hip, or other bone while working in Virginia, then you know that your life has changed, at least in the short term. Now, instead of getting up and going to work each morning, you may be recovering from surgery, living in a cast, and/or on your way to a physical therapy appointment.
You May Need Financial Help
While you intend to go back to work when your doctor gives you clearance to do so, you are out of work right now. Without your paycheck, your medical bills are overwhelming, and your monthly living expenses are difficult to meet.
Filing a Virginia workers’ compensation claim may help you recover from the financial consequences of your workplace accident. Every workers’ comp claim is unique and depends on things such as your income prior to injury and the extent of your injury. Generally, you may be able to recover for a temporary partial injury, such as a broken bone, and your recovery may include compensation for a portion of your income and your medical expenses.
