COMPENSATION CLAIMS

North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

We Will Fight to Recover the Maximum Workers’ Compensation Benefits for You.

Have you been injured at work in North Carolina? Did you suffer an accident while on the job?

Employees are typically eligible to receive “Workers’ Comp” for total disability equal to two-thirds or 66% of their gross average weekly pay, if they suffer an injury that “arises out of and in the course and scope of their employment”. 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.

 

Workers’ compensation claims as a result of workplace injuries involve a complicated and frustrating process. There are many tricky laws and rules. At Daggett Shuler our North Carolina Workers’ Compensation attorneys work closely with you. We’ll guide you through all the steps of your work-related injury case as we vigorously pursue your maximum benefits. We can help you decide whether a lump sum settlement may be in your best interests.

Every Workers’ Compensation claim is different, every injury is different, and every employee is different.

Don’t speak with anyone except your lawyer, doctors, and other medical care providers regarding your claim.

Be Careful

It is very important to be careful when you are trying to get workers’ compensation benefits, a lump sum payment or disability benefits. After a serious work injury, insurance companies are notourius for trying to underpay a lump sum payment, as well as try to shorten the treatment cycle. An experienced work injury lawyer will fight to protect your rights to a full recovery.

Please avoid the following:

  • Do not talk with case managers or vocational experts about your case
  • Do not talk to anyone about your feelings concerning your case
  • Do not discuss your job or your return to work with anyone other than your attorney
  • Do not sign anything about your Workers’ Compensation claim until you consult an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney
  • Do not sign any paperwork regarding a settlement without an attorneys advise
  • Do not sign anything relating to a permanent partial disability rating
  • Take down your social media pages during your treatment
  • No Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram or SanpChat

Every Workers’ Compensation claim is different. Every injury is different. Every employee is different. Don’t speak with anyone except your lawyer, doctors, and other medical care providers regarding your claim.
