Burlington Workers' Compensation Lawyers Go the Extra Mile for You

Working to get you the benefits you need in North Carolina

A workers' compensation claim can be resolved in several ways, including settlement and litigation. An experienced workers' compensation lawyer can help you determine which avenue is appropriate for your situation.

At Lanier Law Group, P.A., our lawyers are known in Burlington and throughout North Carolina for delivering high-quality legal services. Whether you need a skilled negotiator or a passionate litigator, we are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you get workers' compensation in Durham and throughout the state.

Types of settlements

If you are pursuing a workers' compensation claim in Greensboro or elsewhere in North Carolina, there’s more than one way to settle your case. The possibilities for resolving a North Carolina workers' compensation claim include:

  • Compromise settlement agreement: This type of settlement is also known as a “clincher” agreement. When you sign a clincher agreement, you give up any rights you might have to future workers' comp benefits in exchange for a lump-sum payment.
  • North Carolina Industrial Commission Form 26A: This is a form filled out by your employer in which the employer admits that you received a permanent partial disability as a result of your job. If your claim is resolved through a Form 26A, your right to future medical compensation will end two years after your employer last pays you any compensation. If you believe you will need future medical compensation, you must apply to the Industrial Commission within two years, or your right to these benefits may be lost.
