Types of Injuries You Can Claim in Workers’ Compensation

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 couldn’t have selected a better or more competent law firm to handle my SSD claim. The associate with the firm, John, was right on top of everything. He guided me through the whole complicated and confusing process. When I contacted him, whether via phone, text, email, or through their company portal, the response was very quick. I don’t think I could have had better representation than the firm of Daggett Shuler.
