Frequently Asked Questions about Workers Compensation Claims in Virginia 

Can I file a personal injury lawsuit against my employer for a workplace injury?

Workers’ compensation is designed to provide workers with a financial cushion in the event of a work-related injury. It is also designed to protect employers from liability. In most instances, employees cannot sue their employer for personal injury because of workers’ compensation benefits. There are exceptions, however. For example, if the employer acted in a dangerous or reckless way such as by denying the employees’ safety equipment, a personal injury claim can be brought against the employer. Consult with an experienced Virginia workers’ compensation lawyer to find out about your options.

Can I file a personal injury claim if my injuries were caused by a third party?

Yes. If your injuries were the result of a third party’s negligence or recklessness, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the third party. For example, if your injuries were the result of a defective piece of machinery that you were using at work, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer or distributor of the machinery. A workers’ compensation lawyer will review your case and identify those that can be held liable and how best to maximize your compensation.
