BL on Workers' Compensation
The first thing that you need to know about workers' compensation is that your employer and its insurance company are represented. You should know that both the employee and the employer and its insurance carrier have rights and responsibilities under the law. The employer and carrier know their rights and responsibilities. They will protect their rights, but may or may not accept their responsibilities. They are not required to advise you of your rights and responsibilities, and most often, they do not. Moreover, they have developed a game plan for handling workers' compensation claims that is in their interest, and oftentimes, detrimental or bad for yours. For all these reasons, you should obtain competent legal advice to protect your rights as soon as possible after your claim arises. This is what we provide at Conway Law Firm, P.L.L.C.
These claims can be difficult. Sometimes it will feel as if everyone is conspiring against you. You are cut back to 2/3 of your working wage. You are having trouble making ends meet. The employer and its representatives are hounding and pushing on you and your doctor as well. It does not have to be that way. You have rights in Virginia. We are here to help protect those rights and to present your claim.
