Virginia Court Sides With Injured Worker, Ruling Temporary Total Disability Claim Was Timely Filed

“Applying the statute here, the Commission may review the wages the Department of Corrections paid to Walker following her ankle injury, and ‘may make an award ending, diminishing or increasing [this] compensation previously awarded’ because those wages are a statutory award of compensation,” the court concluded, holding that the commission erred in finding Walker’s claim for temporary total disability benefits was barred by the statute of limitations under Code Section 65.2-601.
