We are no longer practicing Workers’ Compensation. However, feel free to contact us and we can provide you with names to several workers’ compensation attorneys. We have left in place our website content regarding workers’ compensation for educational content only. The information provider on workers’ compensation is not meant to provide legal advice on your particular matter, as every case is different.
To protect an injured worker from loss of income if injured at work and for payment of medical bills, the State Legislature adopted the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. Sometimes referred to as worker’s comp insurance, this Act provides workers with full compensation for medical bills and partial compensation for lost wages if they have been injured on the job. While the rules and regulations governing claims under the Workers’ Compensation Act are complex, we believe it is important that you have a basic understanding of what the term “Workers’ Compensation” means.
Workers’ Compensation is a “no fault” system.
Which means you usually do not have to show that your employer did anything wrong to have caused your injury. You simply have to prove you were injured while working. We can offer you names of other attorneys who practice workers’ compensation if needed.
