If you suffer an injury on the job and are unable to return to work, you should file for workers' compensation with the help of an experienced law firm. Since 1995, Lanier Law Group, P.A. has helped injury victims obtain workers' compensation benefits in Winston-Salem and throughout North Carolina.

Our lawyers know the benefits you may be entitled to in North Carolina, and we are prepared to fight to help you receive them.

Lost wages: How much are you entitled to receive?

Whether you are seeking workers' compensation in Greensboro or any other town in North Carolina, you may be able to recover a percentage of your lost wages in addition to your medical expenses. The amount of lost wages you can recover is based primarily on the severity of your injuries. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., our North Carolina workers' compensation attorneys frequently help clients with the following conditions:

  • Temporary total disability: A temporary total disability is a condition that causes you to be totally disabled but for a limited time. In Winston-Salem and elsewhere in North Carolina, you can receive 66 percent of your average weekly wage until you return to work or until your medical condition improves to the point where you could work again.
  • Temporary partial disability: People who have been injured but still can work may collect as much as 66 percent of the difference between their average weekly wage before the disability and their average weekly wage after the disability.
  • Permanent total disability: If you become permanently and totally disabled as a result of a work-related injury or illness, you can receive 66 percent of your average weekly wage for the rest of your life.

After being injured on the job, the last thing you need to worry about are the confusing workers comp laws and procedures. Our goal is to help you quickly obtain workers' compensation so you can get the benefits you need to begin rebuilding your life in Burlington or wherever you happen to live in North Carolina.
