WHY USE A WORKERS' COMP ATTORNEY?

Workers’ Compensation

A personal injury attorney with extensive experience in Workers’ Compensation claims knows the law intimately and knows how to negotiate on your behalf.

Often people come to us not really knowing whether or not they have a legitimate Workers' Comp claim. They’ve suffered some kind of work-related accident or have a disease or condition their physician has linked to their employment, but they’re not sure how to proceed or what their rights are.
For this, and many other reasons, it's important to engage a qualified and experienced Workers' Compensation Attorney as soon as possible following a workplace accident or injury.

Provided only as a general rule of thumb, here are a few scenarios that should prompt you to consult with a Workers' Compensation Attorney ASAP:

1 - You are currently receiving some form of medical benefit and/or disability payments but you believe the amount to be insufficient given your personal circumstances.

2 - You've applied for and have been denied benefits following an accident or injury sustained in the workplace.

3 - You've suffered an injury in the workplace and it required hospitalization and/or surgery.

4 - You've suffered an accident in the workplace or had exposure to some type of working condition which has detrimentally affected your health (occupational disease).

5 - An adverse decision has been made by your employer or their insurance company and you would like to dispute the decision.

6 - The North Carolina Industrial Commission has made an adverse decision, or has ordered payment of benefits which you believe are less than fair given your case.

7 - You're considering or have a WC Claim but need help from a Workers' Comp Lawyer in navigating through the various stages of a claim.

8 - You feel you no longer have the capacity to perform the job for which you were employed due to an accident at work or occupational disease.

9 - You've received medical treatment following a workplace injury and have been told by your Doctor that you will no longer be able to function at the level you were before your injury.

10 – You’ve received a settlement offer from an insurance company, but do not feel that the amount of compensation is fair.

If there is any potential for negligence on the part of a third party, such as involving a defective product or actions taken by a person not employed with your company, we will also fully explore that issue.

It should also be noted that in many cases, people receive medical treatment following an accident at work and it will have no lasting impact on their health after the injury has healed. There are systems in place for these types of injuries where medical expenses are met through your Workers' Comp insurance and there may be no real need to employ an attorney. But if you have any doubt whatsoever, we recommend that you make a call to our offices and schedule a free consultation. You can schedule a visit to one of our office locations around North Carolina and discuss your case with an experienced workplace injury lawyer. If you have a case to pursue, we can act on your behalf and work to get the payments due to you under the law.

HOW LONG BEFORE I GET PAID?

Where liability issues are clear, and there's no reason to take a case to trial, a personal injury lawsuit can often be settled quite quickly.

Tougher cases can average 2 to 3 years, but keep in mind that each case is unique, therefore one cannot predict the amount of time needed to deliver a settlement.

What's key is that you work with a reputable attorney with expertise in the field of auto accidents and injuries. A lot rides on the reputation of your attorney, particularly when negotiating on your behalf with insurance companies.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A WORKERS' COMP CASE?

We can help you evaluate the extent of any injury and can quickly advise you on your available options.

It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a workers' comp or other type of personal injury lawsuit.

Some workers' compensation claims could be based on a variety of nonphysical losses and harms.

The place to start is to contact a reputable Law Firm and request a consultation to review the details of your case.

HOW SOON AFTER I'M INJURED MUST I FILE A CLAIM?

Every state has certain time limits, called "statutes of limitations," which govern the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit and there are procedures to follow for making a claim via Workers' Compensation insurance.

If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may lose your legal right to damages for your injury.
