Pursuing Full Workers' Compensation Benefits for Injured Ambulance Workers
In North Carolina, employers are responsible to provide workers with workers' compensation insurance. This is designed to cover the medical expenses and lost wages for any work-related accident, regardless of fault. Employers are then protected from civil lawsuits.
This sounds straightforward, but employers and insurance companies are known to challenge the extent of workers' injuries in an effort to limit their financial recovery. At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., our legal team can consult your doctor and any medical specialists to understand the extent of your temporary or permanent work-related injuries, such as:
- Back injuries or repetitive motion injuries from lifting patients
- Burns from smoke inhalation
- Broken bones and other serious injuries from belligerent patients
- Whiplash, broken bones, spinal cord injuries or brain injuries from motor vehicle accidents
It is not uncommon for injured ambulance workers to suffer from several compounding injuries. We will consult your doctor to identify the extent of medical treatment you will need well into the future, including any surgeries or physical therapy.
Our top priority is to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible. But, in some cases, serious injuries may ultimately threaten your ability to continue working. If this is the case, we will seek to help you secure permanent total disability benefits for the remainder of your life. Every workers' compensation claim is fact specific. We will take every measure possible to help you recover the benefits you are entitled to for any medical expenses and lost wages.
