Are you compensated for mileage you incur in Virginia if you are an injured worker?

In Virginia if you are an injured worker and have a valid workers' compensation claim you are entitled to 55.5 cents a mile for any trips you need to make to doctors, therapists and hospitals. Also, if you are required to do a light duty job search, you also can claim mileage reimbursement for any mileage you have to incur in your job search. The only caveat in all of this is that you are not allowed mileage reimbursement for trips to the drug store.
