Workers Compensation Attorney

North Carolina state law requires all employers with three or more employees to provide benefits for employees who are injured or killed as a result of an accident that arises out of and within the course and scope of their employment.

If you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, your employer (or your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance) will pay for the cost of treating your injury. If you are out of work for an extended period of time as a result of your injury, you are entitled to wage compensation (2/3 of your average weekly wage). In cases where a worker suffers the loss of a body part or permanent impairment to a body part, the worker is entitled to additional compensation. In cases where a worker is totally disabled as a result of an injury, the worker is entitled to wage compensation for so long as that total disability continues. If a worker is killed as a result of an on-the-job accident, benefits are paid to the worker’s family.

I have more than ten years of experience representing workers injured on the job. Let me help you. You will pay no upfront costs for my representation. I only get paid if I am able to recover compensation for you.

Workers’ Compensation Law is regulated in North Carolina by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. The preceding link leads to a very helpful website that can answer many of your questions. Please take the time to know your rights.
