We have experience pursing both South Carolina workers compensation and North Carolina workers compensation on behalf of our clients.
Victims of on the job injuries may have the right to receive workers comp benefits. Workers compensation laws are designed to give employees financial stability and pay for medical expenses while they recover from their injuries. These benefits pay for your medical expenses, disability payments and other needs such as rehabilitation.
However, the workmans comp process is not always simple: bureaucratic red tape and an incorrectly filled-out form can prevent you from receiving the payments you need and deserve. Before filing for workers comp, talk to a lawyer for an on the job injury. Our workers compensation attorneys accommodate you throughout the process: we can visit you in your home or hospital, and we invite you to call us at any time for questions about your case.
Do You Need a Workers Compensation Attorney?
To determine if you need the assistance of an attorney for an on the job injury claim, consider the following questions:
- Were you injured at work?
- Do you need medical treatment because of on the job injuries?
- Did you get hurt while driving for work?
- Are you out of work because of your injury and need weekly compensation from the insurance carrier?
If the answer to any of the above questions is “yes,” you may need the assistance of an experienced workers compensation lawyer. A personal injury lawyer can help make sure you file your workers compensation claim correctly so that you receive any benefits you are entitled to as quickly as possible. We can also tell you when you may have the right to compensation that goes beyond workers comp. For example, if a contractor, non-employee or a defective product hurts you at work, you could file a third party claim that may grant you more compensation than workman’s comp typically allows.
What Happens if My Workers Compensation Claim is Denied?
Often, insurance providers want to minimize payouts to injured employees, so any mistake in the workers compensation claim process may cause the insurance company to deny a claim. When this happens, you can fight a denial of workers comp coverage. When an insurer denies your claim, you must receive notification of the denial, information about deadlines and instructions on how to appeal. To fight a denial, you should retain workers compensation lawyers who understand workers compensation laws.
