The length of time that you receive worker's compensation benefits will depend on the severity of your injury, and whether or not you can return to work in some capacity.

Virginia state law allows workers to receive compensation for the following:

  • lost wages
  • medical bills
  • loss of earning power

Wage loss benefits can last for a little over a decade, however, compensation for medical bills and loss of earning capacity can last for your entire life if you have a permanent disability. The bottom line is that your benefits will most likely last as long as your injury does.
