  • Worker Comp Denial Virginia

    My carrier has denied a claim because the employee did not report the claim within 30 days. This doesn't seem right to me. Any Virginia WC experts?

    Thanks,

    A failure to report a claim in a timely manner can cause a claim to be denied. If an employee feels they have a legitimate claim and there is a good reason for not reporting the claim sooner, then they may file issues with the state WC Commission within 2 years of the accident. http://www.vwc.state.va.us/employees_guide.htm
