Virginia Head Injury and Concussion at Work Results in $500,000 Award

Ms. Jones injured her head at work in Petersburg, Virginia. This caused headaches which were disputed by the employer. We represented her at a hearing and the headaches were awarded. She then received compensation for about 10 years or 500 weeks. In Virginia compensation for a work injury usually ends in 500 weeks. However, one exception is a brain injury. We sought to extend Ms. Jones benefits to lifetime based on our claim she could not work due to her brain injury. The Commission agreed and she received a compensation extension which is worth more than $500,000.00 on April 15, 2014.
