What is Workers’ Compensation? Help for Hurt UPS Employees

 

In Virginia all employers of a certain size must carry workers compensation insurance for their employees. This insurance coverage is available to employees who sustain an injury by accident arising out of and in the course of the employment that either causes a new injury or aggravates a pre-existing condition. Yes – you can receive Virginia workers compensation benefits for the aggravation, acceleration, or exacerbation of a preexisting condition. This is good news for UPS employees with physically demanding jobs who may have been hurt in the past.

 

Virginia workers compensation also covers occupational illnesses, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and hearing loss. UPS employees who use their arms and hands to move and deliver packages, or who are exposed to loud noises in the plane or warehouse, may receive benefits for their work-related disease.

 

If you prove that your injury or illness is covered under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, then you may receive the following benefits:

 

 

 

 

  • Vocational rehab if you’re unable to return to your UPS job because of your work accident or occupational illness. Vocational rehabilitation may include payment of school-related expenses if you enroll in classes to switch careers.

 

Though the workers compensation system is supposed to be efficient and less litigious than civil courts, it is often not. Don’t be surprised if UPS or Liberty Mutual, which manages UPS’s workers compensation claims in Virginia, refuses to accept your claim right away. That’s why you should contact an experienced UPS workers comp lawyer like Corey Pollard right away. With Mr. Pollard’s help conducting discovery in your workers’ comp claim, developing the medical evidence, and presenting your case at a workers comp hearing, you have a better chance of getting the workers comp benefits you need after your UPS work accident.

 

Common UPS Workers Compensation Claims

 

UPS has several subsidiaries, including: The UPS Store; UPS Supply Chain Solutions; UPS Capital; UPS Airlines; UPS Express Critical; UPS Freight; UPS Logistics; UPS Mail Innovations; UPS Professional Solutions; and, UPS I-parcel. This is a long way of saying that UPS has many types of employees with different occupations and job responsibilities.

 

If you are a package handler or driver, then you probably do a lot of heavy lifting, walking, and climbing. This can lead to injuries such as:

 

  • Herniated disks
  • Cervical strains and sprains
  • Lumbar strains and sprains
  • Shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tears
  • Knee injuries, including ligament tears

 

Those of you who are UPS truck drivers face additional workplace dangers. You may be involved in a motor vehicle accident while completing your route. Common truck accident injuries include:

 

  • Amputation injuries and crushed bones
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Burns
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries, which can lead to depression, anxiety, and memory loss
  • Deep cuts requiring stitches
  • Neck injuries and whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries

 

No matter your job at UPS or your job responsibilities, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits as an employee of UPS. These benefits can pay for medical expenses and lost income.
