Workers' Compensation Lawyer in North Carolina
Almost every employer in North Carolina is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case an employee is injured on the job or suffers from a work-related illness. Workers’ comp provides benefits to eligible workers’ to help cover their medical expenses and lost wages as they recuperate.
The workers’ compensation system represents a compromise between employers and workers’. Health and wage replacement benefits are automatically provided regardless of who is at fault for the accident. In return, injured employees cannot file a lawsuit against their employers for compensation.
Here’s the problem: the North Carolina workers’ comp system doesn’t always work as it should.
In many cases, insurance companies deny or limit the benefits that workers’ deserve for their injuries or illnesses. Understandably, the breakdown of the system can cause immense confusion and financial hardships for injured workers’ and their families.
If your North Carolina workers’ compensation claim is denied, the state only gives you a limited amount of time to file an appeal. In addition, workers’ comp claims are often very technical and fact-sensitive, so handling these issues on your own may not be the best course of action.
