North Carolina Work-Related Injury Attorney

Compensation for Work-Related Injuries

Have you been injured at work? You are entitled to workers' compensation if you have suffered a job-related injury or illness, including compensation for your medical care and treatment as well as lost wages. Benefits are paid for an accident, or an injury or illness that developed over a period of time due to the performance of repetitive tasks, exposure to toxic substances and other job-related factors. If you are considering applying for workers' compensation, speak with a North Carolina personal injury lawyer at Lanier Law Group, P.A. to learn more about the claims process and the documentation that will be needed when pursuing benefits. Our firm has over 25 years of experience representing clients in workers' compensation cases and can explain your legal rights regarding work injuries and how to secure the benefits that you deserve.

  • Falling debris
