Why you need a BOARD CERTIFIED SPECIALIST workers' compensation attorney

Every Workers’ Compensation claim is different. Every injury is different. Every employee is different. It is very important to be careful when you are trying to get workers’ compensation benefits. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to deny claims, or underpay a lump sum payment, as well as try to shorten your medical treatment. You need a dedicated Workers’ Compensation attorney on your side to fight the insurance companies and get you the compensation you deserve.

The injury must occur while the employee is carrying out activities for the benefit of their employer. In addition, the injury must be an “accident” or be the result of a “specific traumatic incident”.

Do not sign anything about your Workers’ Compensation claim unless you speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney in North Carolina first. Do not sign any paperwork regarding a settlement or a permanent partial disability rating unless you have consulted with an attorney regarding
your rights.

An experienced work injury lawyer will fight to protect your rights to a full recovery. That’s why to ensure the best possible outcome for your claim, you should be mindful of these do’s and don’ts.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Do speak with an attorney who is also a North Carolina Board Certified
    Workers’ Compensation Specialist at your earliest opportunity.
  • Do take down your social media pages during your treatment.

WHAT YOU SHOULDN't DO

  • Don’t speak with anyone, including friends, relatives or co-workers about your case, except your lawyer, doctors, and other medical care providers.
  • Don’t talk with case managers or vocational experts about your case.
  • Don't talk to anyone about your feelings concerning your case, or discuss your job or your return to work with anyone other than your attorney.
  • Don’t sign anything about your Workers’ Compensation claim until you consult an experienced North Carolina Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist attorney.
  • Don’t sign any paperwork regarding a settlement without an attorney’s
    advice.
  • Don’t sign anything relating to a permanent partial disability rating without an attorney’s advice.
  • Don’t post on ANY social media pages during your treatment. This is one of the most common ways to ruin your claim.
