North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Assisting Clients with All Aspects of Their Workers’ Comp Claims

Workers' compensation is a state-run program designed to provide compensation to employees who suffer on-the-job injuries or work-related illnesses. If you have been injured at work, you should speak with an attorney at Lanier Law Group about filing for benefits through the North Carolina workers' compensation system.

To recover workers' compensation benefits, you must establish two things:

  • You were employed when the injury took place.
  • The injury was a direct result of your employment. This means your injuries must have been caused by the tasks you were required to perform as part of your job.

Note that an “injury” can be physical trauma or a bodily wound or exposure to a harmful substance, leading to illness.

If you need help with your workers’ compensation claim, contact Lanier Law Group online or call us at (855) 757-4204 for a free, confidential consultation. Se habla español.

Common Work-Related Accidents

Construction accidents are responsible many workers' comp claims each year in North Carolina. Ladder and scaffolding falls, as well as falling debris, are especially dangerous for construction workers. These types of accidents can cause severe head/brain and back injuries.

Workers also can suffer injuries due to building collapses, radiation exposure, asbestos exposure, and fires or explosions. Such accidents are capable of causing life-changing injuries that may prevent victims from returning to work temporarily or permanently.

Other common work-related accidents include repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or shoulder injuries, slip and falls, burns, commercial vehicle/truck accidents, and injuries caused by defective products/equipment.

Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits

Workers' compensation benefits pay for current and future medical costs resulting from your injuries, as well as lost wages. Additionally, the surviving spouses and family members of workers who were killed on the job may be able to recover death benefits.

Many people who suffer an injury are no longer able to work, at least for a while. With the help of workers' compensation benefits, however, injured workers can continue to receive an income even though they are no longer able to work. You should be aware that if you apply for workers' compensation benefits, you can’t sue your employer for additional damages in a civil lawsuit.

Depending on the extent and nature of your injuries, you may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits, temporary partial disability benefits, and/or permanent partial disability benefits. A North Carolina workers’ compensation attorney at our firm can help you examine your various legal options based on your unique situation.
