Flight attendants have a job unlike any other. Though work injuries can happen in any occupation, flight attendants have a high rate of workplace accidents because they spend so much time working thousands of feet in the air. An otherwise minor injury can become severe when there is no way to get medical treatment quickly. If you are injured on the job, contact flight attendant workers’ compensation lawyer Corey Pollard for a free consultation and evaluation of your legal rights. He has helped many injured flight attendants like you get Virginia workers compensation and Social Security disability benefits.
Many flight attendant injury claims become complicated. This happens for a number of reasons. Your employer may deny your workers’ comp claim. Or it may accept your claim but then delay payment of your wage loss benefits or authorization of your medical treatment. Your employer may pressure you to accept a lump sum settlement that is inadequate or that negatively impacts your rights under a collective bargaining agreement. Your employer may also try to force you to file a workers compensation claim in a jurisdiction that is unfriendly to injured workers and that limits available benefits when you can pursue your injury claim in Virginia.
