An experienced workers compensation lawyer in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia will help you calculate your correct comp rate, get the benefits allowed by law and protect your rights under the Act. The establishment of the “average weekly wage” and the weekly compensation rate are important foundational elements of the case that are difficult to correct or change later in the case. While the maximum weekly comp rate may keep a high earner from getting 66 & 2/3 of their salary, a workers comp attorney who regularly goes to court to try workplace injury cases will know how to help lessen the impact of the wage loss limits when they are released to light duty or part time work.
