NC’s governor is taking away workers’ rights

It's been happening under the radar screen (unless you've been following our warnings about Gov. Pat McCrory's unchecked power grab). The governor, his political allies and big business and insurance industry lobbyists are trying to to dismantle the N.C. workers' compensation system. They want to make it harder for injured workers to get the benefits and medical treatment they need and deserve -- because doing so will make insurance companies and big businesses richer. The INDY newspaper in Durham has a frankly frightening article about how ...

N.C. Budget Bill Threatens Rights of Injured Workers

The N.C. General Assembly has until June 30, the end of the fiscal year, to pass a state budget. As the budget vote comes down to the wire, we need you to contact your state legislators TODAY to make sure they don't approve a budget that would jeopardize the rights of injured workers by allowing the governor to fire every workers' compensation judge for no reason! That's exactly what will happen if the state budget passes with a particular provision intact. Section 15.1.6(b) of the budget bill would dramatically change the terms of deputy co ...

In fact, the scandal may not have come to light but for whistleblowers. The N.C. Division of Veterans Affairs has established  a hotline where v ...

Tribute to Todd Martinez

I wanted to take a moment today to pay tribute to High Point Firefighter Todd Martinez who died last weekend after a hit-and-run bicycle crash. Anytime I hear of a death like this, I am saddened because accidents like these don't have to happen if only drivers would share the road and give cyclists the respect they deserve. But Martinez was more than a name on the news for us here at Deuterman Law Group. He was one of the first responders who joined us a few years ago in our fight against the bad workers' comp reform bills. He was even featur ...
