Richmond, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2015 -- Every year over 80,000 Virginia workers experience some type of occupational injury or illness. These injured employees are generally entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits. However, many injured Virginians soon learn that the process required to receive benefits, can sometimes add "insult to injury."
Once an employee is injured there are several issues and responsibilities that must be addressed for an employee to preserve and receive benefits including medical care and lost wages. This creates an often overwhelming and confusing burden on an employee who is already distressed by the underlying injury or illness. It is also challenging to make the best decisions when dealing with a myriad of rules, regulations, employer representatives, insurance companies and the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission. Often these other parties have their own interests to protect.
Virginia Attorney, Corey Pollard, who focuses on helping injured workers to protect and secure their Workers' Compensation benefits has prepared a new reference guide to help the injured navigate the challenges. This free resource: "Virginia Employees -Workers' Compensation - INJURED - What You Need To Know" is a comprehensive instruction guide to help the injured know what they must do and when, to protect their rights and benefits.
Attorney Corey Pollard explains, "Getting workers' compensation benefits is difficult because your employers' insurance company is looking out for its own interest, not yours. So you need to know your rights, options, and how to protect your claim."
