Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Workers Compensation LawyerIt does not matter what time of the day or night it was or at what point in your shift or workday it was, if you’ve been injured while you were working, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a workers compensation law firm Virginia workers who have been injured, recommend. Some employers in Virginia and many of the surrounding states are required to maintain workers compensation insurance. If an employer who is supposed to carry this insurance for their employees fails to do this, an injured employee may be able to file a civil suit against the employer to recover for damages. If you or someone you love was injured while on the job or became unwell because of their job, or if someone close to you died because of this, the workplace injury victim and/or their family may be entitled to compensation.

Workers compensation laws and requirements differ from state to state. This is one reason why many victims of workplace injuries find it beneficial to enlist the help of an experienced law firm that has lawyers who are licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where their injury occurred. Cohen & Cohen has been serving workplace injury victims and their families, in Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and the surrounding areas for over 30 years. If you think you may need the help of a reputable workers compensation law firm Virginia residents can trust, contact Cohen & Cohen, today. We are available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A member of our legal team can discuss your situation with you and give you a free case evaluation.

Compensation

Most on-the-job injuries that occur in Virginia are covered under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act. This may also cover injuries if a worker who is contracted for employment in Virginia is injured while on the job even though the injury occurred outside the state. In general, an employee may be eligible for workers’ compensation if they are injured or unwell because of an accident, occupational disease and for some kinds of employment, ordinary diseases of life.

Accidents In an actual risk state (such as Virginia) for an employee to be eligible for
compensation from their employer, an injury on the job must have a causal connection between
the injury and the workplace conditions. Not every injury is covered in an at risk state.

Occupational Disease An occupational disease is any chronic ailment that occurs as a result of work or occupational activity. Some occupational diseases are compensable. These may include but are not limited to, skin diseases and disorders, respiratory conditions, poisoning, hearing loss, decompression sickness, radiation exposure, blood-borne pathogenic diseases, and some forms of cancer.

Ordinary Diseases of Life In some states, workers’ compensation also covers non-occupational diseases that are the result of an occupational disease, or are contracted during employment as a medical worker at a hospital, sanitarium, or as an emergency medical rescue personnel.

If you are unsure of whether or not your injury or ailment is covered by workers’ compensation, a good place to start exploring this is with the help of a reputable law firm. A workers’ compensation law firm may be able to help you get the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
