Many of our law firm’s clients are injured employees who were reluctant to report workplace injuries, fearing for their job security. That fear is understandable.
After all, if an injury interferes with an employee’s functioning, the employee may question his or her utility. Fortunately, the area of workers’ compensation law should put such fears to rest.
In North Carolina, state law requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which awards full benefits regardless of fault. The law also protects workers against employer retaliation in any form, such as withheld promotions, bonuses or even job termination. Yet many employees are unaware of these protections. That’s where our law firm can get to work. We will help protect you after an on-the-job injury.
