Workers injured on the job, such as power company linesmen who are exposed to dangers at work, can access the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission online through its new website.

On August 11, 2014, the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission (VWC) launched a new website.  The URL is: https://www.workcomp.virginia.gov/.

The VWC website is a critical resource for anyone involved with a workers’ compensation case, not only because of the vast amount of information covered on the site, but also because of the WebFile system.

Through the VWC WebFile portal, claimants, attorneys, claim administrators, professional employer organizations (PEOs), and group self-insured associations (GSIAs) can manage records and take care of key transactions online.

The Abrams Landau workers’ compensation team always recommends claimants track their cases using WebFile.  Herndon workplace disability lawyer Doug Landau notes that, “injured workers and their families can see the status of their claim, check to see if documents have been correctly filed, look at the “official accident reports, and see the terms of their Awards 24/7.  You do not have to wait over the weekend to find out what’s what with your case.  You do not have to incur long distance call charges or wait on hold with the VWC clerical staff.  You can do it anytime, anywhere, and for any reason.  Our clients’ peace of mind is a terrific thing.”

With the release of the new website and new URL, if you are a frequent visitor to the site and had bookmarked your most-used pages, please be sure to return to the site and update all of your bookmarks.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an on-the-job accident and there are questions as to what laws apply, email or call Abrams Landau, Ltd. at once (703-796-9555).
