Types of Injuries You Can Claim in Workers’ Compensation

October 24th, 2013 Uncategorized

Workers compensation in North Carolina covers injuries by accident, or in some limited cases like back injuries, injuries that come from what’s called a specific traumatic event. The problem is injury by accident and specific traumatic event are very precise legal terms that can get very complicated. To the person who’s not educated as to these terms, they can make critical mistakes in dealing with the insurance company or the employer right from the beginning, if they don’t have an understanding of what they’re talking about.

That’s why consulting with an experienced attorney is so important in workers compensation cases. In addition, there’s things such as repetitive trauma injuries; that’d be like carpal tunnel syndrome, or exposure to hazardous chemicals. Those are really specialty areas of workers compensation that takes a lot of experience and expertise to truly handle.

I’m extremely satisfied. I could call or email and I would always get a quick reply. My attorney was always ready to answer any questions I had. Attorney Hummel was there for me at a time when I didn’t know where to turn. He and his assistant always listened and gave me comfort through my difficult time. I highly recommend Daggett Shuler.
