Chesapeake, part of Hampton Roads, is the third-most populous city in Virginia. It has a diverse economy to match its diverse landscape, which contains miles of farmland, forests, and wetlands. Its largest employers include Chesapeake City Public Schools, Sentara Healthcare, Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, Cox Communications, Dollar Tree, LTD Hospitality Group, and QVC. Chesapeake workers compensation lawyer Corey Pollard represents employees who sustain work-related injuries in Chesapeake.
By law, most businesses in Chesapeake are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance so that they can provide workers’ compensation benefits to employees who are injured on the job. These benefits – which may include lifetime medical care, temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, permanent partial disability, and vocational rehabilitation training – are available to employees who satisfy the requirements of the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.
