No one files an insurance claim because they are having a great day. You filed (or are planning to file) because something has gone wrong, and having your claim denied just kicks you while you’re down. We can help.
Benefit claims are denied all the time, most often for one of these two reasons:
- You do not meet the conditions defined in the policy. Insurance companies will argue that this is the ONLY reason claims are denied, but our vast experience tells us that’s not true. Very often…
- Your claim has been denied for a false or made-up reason, which is explained in official-sounding insurance language designed to make you give up and go away. This is a frivolous claim denial.
While there’s not much we can do in the first instance (except explain your policy in terms you can understand), in the second instance, we can fight to overturn a frivolous, unprincipled, erroneous denial. Insurance companies don’t make it easy, though.

Let’s take a fresh look, map out a plan and win your benefits.
Workers compensation is a no-fault sytem in Virginia. It helps relieve the hardship for an injured worker but it does not provide "full compensation." Injured workers have questions and often make mistakes in dealing with their claims. This site, and Michele's free book, The Ultimate Guide to Worker's Compensation in Virginia, answer your questions.
