Do’s and Dont’s
Every Workers’ Compensation claim is different and unique. 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.
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 follow these do’s and don’ts!

About Workers’ Compensation
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.
