Do Not Hesitate to File a Claim for Benefits in West Virginia
If you have been injured at work or been made ill as a result of your work responsibilities, be sure to file a claim with your employer immediately. Any delay in reporting may lead to a delay or denial of benefits. If your claim for West Virginia workers’ compensation is denied, be sure to file an appeal—called a “protest” in West Virginia—immediately. Like most states, West Virginia has very strict deadlines that must be met.
While there is no requirement to have a West Virginia workers’ compensation law firm on your side while you apply for compensation, having legal assistance from experienced attorneys can increase your chances of having your claim for benefits approved. If your claim has been denied there is also no requirement to have an attorney on your side. However, the appeals process can be extremely complex.
