Workers’ compensation law
Workers’ compensation is a legal system set up to help if you are injured at work or develop a health problem as a result of your job. In North Carolina, all employers with three or more employees are required by law to have a workers’ compensation policy. The system provides for weekly payments to cover loss of earning, medical expenses and rehabilitation of anyone injured at work.
We understand that every workers’ compensation claim is different, and we use an individualized approach that’s
right for you and your case as we handle every aspect of your workers’ compensation claim.
When it comes to justice for our workers’ compensation clients, money isn’t our only goal. There’s a lot more to a workers’ compensation claim than receiving a fair financial settlement. We’re also concerned with our clients’ health and their overall well-being.
