Are You temporarily Disabled From an injury at work or Occupational Disease?
The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act covers accidental injuries and occupational diseases that allow you to return to work, but at a lighter duty level. Temporary Partial Disability benefits are payable when you return to light work duties, but do not earn as much as you were prior to your injury. Because you are able to work and earn income at a reduced capacity, your disability is considered only partial under Virginia Law.
Powell Law Group has significant knowledge of Virginia’s workers’ compensation laws, with attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants working diligently to develop strategies to move your claim forward to make sure you are receiving the maximum benefits available in your unique situation.
What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?
Under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, a worker who sustains temporary partial disability (TPD) due to a work injury may be awarded compensation at two-thirds (2/3) of the difference between what they earned before their injury or occupational disease and what they earn while under light duty restrictions as dictated by their treating physician.
Undocumented workers in Virginia are not eligible to receive this type of compensation under the current Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act. However, they are eligible for compensation in the categories of Temporary Total Disability (TPP), Permanent Partial Disability (PPD), and Permanent Total Disability (PTD).
How Much Will This Cost Me?
It will cost you nothing to call our office and learn if we can help you with your case. After we review your case and begin working together, attorneys’ fees for work injury claims are regulated by the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act. As an injured worker, you will pay attorney fees when your case comes to a resolution, never up front. We also work with you to see that you receive compensation for other expenses you incurred pursuing your Workers’ Compensation claim.
Our attorneys persistently pursue maximum compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. Call today to arrange your free initial consultation. We can be reached at 804-794-4030 or contact us online.
