The West Virginia workers’ compensation system has come a long way since its creation in 1913. Historically, employees relinquished some of their common-law rights to sue employers for injuries they sustained in a work-related accident, and instead received benefits by the employer-funded system. Soon after, West Virginia maintained monopoly control over workers’ compensation. But now that is all about to change. We are rapidly approaching the final stage in the privatization process and West Virginia is on its way to becoming a competitive market.
