Workers' Comp vs. Personal Injury Claims

Any on-the-job injury serious enough to disable you from work probably merits a conversation with an experienced lawyer to ensure you are aware of all legal options for obtaining compensation.

Do You Need a Lawyer to Pursue Your Workers' Compensation Claim?

Most people throughout North Carolina are entitled to workers' compensation benefits after injury-causing on-the-job accidents. However, the process required to file your claim, win approval and start receiving paid medical treatment and checks can be overwhelming and extremely frustrating on your own. Work comp insurers frequently deny claims, delay or stop paying benefits and raise other barriers for injured workers and families in need of support.

Should Someone Other Than Your Employer Be Held Accountable?

Upon investigation, some work accidents prove to have been caused by the negligence of someone other than the injured person's employer, such as a subcontractor on the work site or the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment. Depending on the circumstances of your case, filing a "third-party" personal injury lawsuit against the person or company responsible for causing your injuries may be far more financially beneficial than a work comp claim alone.
