A: You indicate you have been on workers compensation since 2002. In Virginia the usual limit for workers compensation payments is 500 weeks or about 10 years. However, you indicate you have been receiving workers compensation for about 15 years. You would need to provide more details. Is this a Virginia workers compensation claim?
