How long will my construction accident case take?
I’m often asked, how long will it take to resolve my construction accident case in Virginia? Construction accident cases under Virginia law are usually handled by workers’ compensation. In those types of cases, it can take up to a year to resolve the case fully.You’re entitled to a hearing on any contested claim that may be defended by your employer whether it be because of intentional misuse of equipment on the job, drinking, using drugs on the job, or that the accident didn’t arise out of the performance of your job duties at the time of the accident. In any of those cases, your hearing will probably happen within six months to a year after the accident. Shortly after that, we can probably wrap it up depending on what the extent of your ongoing medical care is.
