Garbage collectors, mail carriers and other city employees are constantly on their feet. Pressure to perform more efficiently, slippery road conditions and other factors can lead to serious work-related injuries. If you or your loved one was injured while working as a city, state or county employee, obtain experienced legal help.
In North Carolina, the level of benefits injured workers can obtain depends on the language used in their disability plan. At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we understand the complex interplay between disability benefits and workers' compensation benefits. Sometimes, injured city workers can obtain both types of benefits, other times they cannot.
Our Raleigh city employee work injury attorneys are highly knowledgeable on how long-term disability claims can affect workers' compensation cases. Contact our law firm to schedule a free initial consultation and learn how we can help you preserve and maintain the benefits you are entitled to receive.
Helping Injured City Workers Secure Workers' Compensation Benefits
With 40 years of combined experience, our legal team has provided strong advocacy and legal counsel to injured city, county and state workers. We are committed to helping workers get back on their feet after suffering work-related injuries such as:
- Back injuries from heavy lifting and other straining work
- Broken bones, sprained ankles and fractures from slip-and-fall accidents
- Repetitive stress injuries from office work and other manual work
- Brain damage, lung disease and skin disorder through exposure to toxic chemicals and other hazardous substances in the workplace
In North Carolina, injured city workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, regardless of who caused the work-related accident. This no-fault system is designed to provide injured workers with benefits for their medical expenses and lost wages. In return, injured workers cannot pursue a civil lawsuit against their employer for additional compensation.
This is a complicated area of the law. We are committed to helping you navigate through North Carolina's workers' compensation system in pursuit of the benefits you are entitled to. We have access to industry-leading experts, including medical specialists who can help us understand the extent of your work-related injuries.
