We consistently receive calls from people who need help with work-related injuries. In many cases, Injured workers face significant challenges when they pursue wage loss and medical benefits after a workplace injury in Virginia. Given the diversity of employment in the Northern Virginia Area, the injured worker must determine whether they should file a claim or lawsuit under the Virginia Workers Compensation Act, Jones Act, FELA, Longshore Act or some other law. Many, if not most, claims will arise under the Virginia Workers Compensation Act. Virginia Workers Compensation law was originally set up to allow quick resolution of claims so that injured workers can receive relief quickly. While some cases move through the system without a problem, many cases get stuck in the process because the claim is denied by the insurance company or employer. Determining which law to file a claim under can be a complex undertaking.
That is where we come in. Don't hesitate to contact us. B. Patrick Agnew and Eric Johnson both handle work injury cases. While he is no longer in the active practice of law with our firm, Gorman Rosenberger assists Eric and Patrick with day to day and complex issues to come up in cases. We have a strong history representing injured workers, a wealth of helpful relationships and a strong desire to advocate for our injured workers.
Over the years, Eric Johnson has handled hundreds of auto accident cases. B. Patrick Agnew very often assists Eric with these cases. Our process is different than other firms. Eric and Patrick are involved directly with our clients about important developments from the time of the first call for help until the trial or settlement is concluded. Auto Accidents are a common occurrence, particularly with the increase in population and increasing roadway distractions (cell phones!). Some accidents cause little or no injury and are fairly simple to resolve. Your case may be different. If you were involved in an accident and have received medical treatment because of the accident we recommend discussing the accident, the treatment and the cost of your medical care with a skilled attorney as soon as possible.
Working until the typical age of retirement age (65) is simply not possible for many people. Sometimes, that is because of a work-related or auto of an accident that has left the worker with permanent work disability. Other times, workers, because of their hard work are simply worn out physically and have pain and symptoms that cause them not to be able to do the work that they once performed. Whatever the cause, many workers are entitled to receive disability payments through Social Security Disability. Some of those claims are approved quickly. Other times, the Social Security Administration denies what are in reality valid claims. When a case is denied, the appeal and hearing process can be complex.
If a hearing is necessary, disabled claimants must wait until the assigned "ODAR" office schedules the hearing.
It is common practice for our firm to walk through the complex appeal and hearing process with clients. We have a strong record of success. If you need help with a denied Social Security Disability case, call us. We are happy to help.
