The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act provides many types of workers’ compensation benefits. requires employers to provide all necessary medical attention to an employee who suffers an injury by accident arising out of and in the course of their employment. These lifetime medical benefits are provided to the employee at no charge.
Medical attention includes office visits, surgery, medical and surgical supplies, hospitalizations, physical therapy, ambulatory devices, inpatient admissions, and whatever else the injured worker may need to recover from his or her work-related injuries. Because medical care is so expensive, insurance companies often dispute that the employee had a compensable injury by accident. If that happens to you, contact a Virginia workers compensation lawyer right away.
