Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Fairfax

Recover Fair & Full Benefits for Your Workplace Accident

If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to medical care and benefits for lost earnings, without having to prove fault or negligence. This is possible through workers’ compensation, which provides no-fault coverage for all work-related injuries and illnesses. Filing a claim and actually recovering the benefits you deserve, however, is not always a straightforward matter. You may face unfair delays or an unreasonable denial of your claim.

As experienced Fairfax workers’ compensation lawyers, we at Ashcraft & Gerel can offer the skilled legal representation you need if you have a complex claim, have been denied, or are having any problems recovering workers’ comp benefits. We know the system and how to negotiate with our clients’ employers and their insurance carriers to pursue full compensation.

Why Was My Workers’ Comp Claim Denied?

There are different reasons that a workers’ compensation claim may be denied. While some are unfairly denied by profit-driven employers and insurers, others are denied for potentially legitimate reasons, such as:

  • The injury was not reported in time. In Virginia, you must report a workplace injury to your employer within 30 days of its occurrence or when you find out that your injury is work-related.
  • The claim was not filed in time. Even after reporting an injury to your employer, you must report it to the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. This must be done within two years.
  • The injury was not work-related. Workers’ compensation only covers injuries or illnesses that are sustained in the course of one’s employment. If your injury was not work-related, it will not be covered.

A denied claim is an obstacle that can be overcome. If you were unreasonably denied benefits, our Fairfax workers’ compensation attorneys may be able to file an appeal, along with supporting documentation, to show that you are entitled to medical care and financial support for lost earnings. As always, we will pursue the full compensation allowed.
