We are sorry to hear that you have been hurt in a Virginia workplace accident and that your workers’ compensation claim has been denied. In theory, workers’ compensation is supposed to be a no-fault insurance program. That means that the insurance company should pay you for the injuries you sustained on the job, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Yet, some insurers seek to maximize their profits by denying valid claims.
If your claim has been denied, then you have certainly suffered a setback, but it is not too late to contact a Gainesville workers’ compensation lawyer. Your lawyer will advise you of your rights and can discuss your legal options with you. Those options could include filing a workers’ compensation appeal or a personal injury claim against a third party.
You can be confident that if you choose to file an appeal or a claim against a third party, such as a machine manufacturer, that an attorney will be representing the insurance company or third party. You deserve the same advantage.
Accordingly, we invite you to call an experienced Gainesville workers’ compensation attorney today for more information. Our lawyers welcome your call at 540-341-0007 or 888-907-2631, and we would be pleased to provide you with a FREE consultation about your legal rights and possible financial recovery.
