Virginia Workers' Compensation Act

The Virginia Workers' Compensation Act aims to provide a structure for injured employees who are pursuing compensation benefits. In order for a worker to receive workers' compensation benefits, he or she must establish that the compensation conditions spelled out in this act holds true in his or her case. To pursue benefits under workers' compensation, you must be able to prove that:

  • The accident occurred at work or during a work-related function
  • The accident was caused by a work-related activity
  • The accident occurred suddenly at a specific time

If you have been injured on the job and are pursuing benefits through workers' compensation, you must file within two years from the date of the accident.
