Seeking a Full Financial Recovery for Injured Workers in North Carolina
In North Carolina, employers are responsible to provide workers' compensation insurance. This is designed to cover injured workers' lost wages and medical expenses, regardless of who caused the work-related accident. This sounds straightforward, but employers and insurance companies are known to deny and delay legitimate claims. Our legal team is committed to helping injured workers secure the benefits they are entitled for any work-related accidents, such as:
- Work-related motor vehicle accidents involving police cars and fire trucks
- Assaults or shootings police officers encounter on-the-job
- Slip-and-fall accidents from dangers conditions including slippery floors, broken stairways and chemical exposure
- Floor and roof collapses causing firefighters to suffer from temporary and permanent injuries
- Heavy lifting can cause firefighters to experience serious back injuries
- Smoke inhalation requiring extensive medical treatment
Our law firm understands the complex interplay between personal injury and workers' compensation claims. If a third party's negligent actions caused your accident at work, we can help you recover compensation above and beyond a workers' compensation claim through a civil lawsuit. For example, if you were in a work-related car accident, we will determine if a third party, such as another driver or manufacturer ultimately caused the accident. This would allow you to recover compensation for any medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages through a personal injury claim.
