After an On-the-job injury, the claims and benefits process can be quite complicated and not everyone is necessarily looking out in your best interest.
Should you ever get injured on the job, the first thing you need to do is report this injury to your direct supervisor as well as the safety officer.
Next you should visit this site (VA Worker's Compensation), and then print and fill out this form.
Once all filled out you can either mail it or hand deliver it to 1000 DMV Drive, Richmond, VA. 23220.
An injured worker must file a claim with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission in order to protect their right to benefits under Virginia law, even if there have been payments by the employer or claim administrator for time missed from work because of the injury or for medical treatment for the injury.
