If you can have a doctor connect the work conditions with your illness/injury, you can file a worker's compensation claim to have the cost of those illnesses/injuries covered.


Unfortunately, Virginia is a "sole recourse" state, meaning that worker's compensation is your only available method of suing the employer for what you believe to be work related injuries.
