The stakes are high in Virginia workers compensation claims. If you win, you and your family get financial security and you will receive the medical treatment you need to try to get back to work. If you lose, you and your family may face financial devastation and an uncertain future. When everything is on the line, you deserve a Virginia workers compensation lawyer who will fight back against the employer and its insurance company. And win


Are you an injured worker or the loved one of an injured worker who was hurt in a work accident or who is sick because of an occupational disease? Then you probably have a lot of questions:


  • Who will pay wage loss benefits and income replacement to you and your family if you’re unable to work for weeks, months, or even years after your workplace injury?


  • Who will pay the medical bills that you keep receiving for treatment and diagnostic tests related to your work accident?


  • Who will cover any future medical treatment you need because of your work injury, such as surgeries, prescription medication, and therapy?


  • What happens if you have permanent partial disability related to your work accident and can only do light duty work that doesn’t pay as well?


  • How can you negotiate a top-dollar lump sum workers’ compensation settlement?


  • Who can you count on to make sure that you get all of the workers’ compensation benefits available?


These are tough questions. But you’re in the right place to get answers. When you are hurt on the job, you need help right away. Unfortunately getting the compensation, medical care, and settlement you deserve can be difficult because the insurance company has an army of claims adjusters, attorneys, nurse case managers, and vocational rehabilitation counselors trying to delay, deny, and dispute your legal rights under Virginia workers’ compensation. But we can help.


I’m Corey Pollard – a Virginia workers compensation lawyer with Jenkins, Block & Associates who has helped more than 1,000 injured workers in Virginia get the compensation, benefits, and medical treatment they deserve. I’ll work hard to get you every penny you’re owed. And with office locations in Richmond, VA and Newport News, VA I can hep Virginia’s injured workers statewide.
