Workers’ Compensation
 

Workers' Compensation Attorney in North Carolina

Committed to getting you the benefits you deserve

Workers' compensation is a state-run program designed to provide compensation to employees who suffer injury or illness on the job. If you have been injured at work, you should speak with an attorney about filing for benefits through the North Carolina workers' compensation system. To recover Workers' compensation benefits, you must establish two things:

  1. You were employed when the injury took place.
  2. 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.

Examples of workers' comp accidents

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

Workers also can suffer injury because of building collapses, radiation exposure, asbestos exposure and fires or explosions. Such accidents are capable of causing life-changing injuries, so victims should always talk to an experienced lawyer before filing for workers' compensation.

Types of workers' compensation benefits

Workers' compensation benefits pay for current and future medical costs resulting from your injuries as well as lost wages. 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.
