Durham Workers Compensation Lawyers

Secure the Benefits you Deserve for Your North Carolina Workers Comp Claim

An overwhelming majority of North Carolina businesses are required to carry workers' compensation coverage. That means, if one of their workers should get hurt while on the job, that injured worker has the option to pursue benefits under their employers' coverage and make the fullest recovery possible. On paper, this is a fair system. In practice, however, it is fraught with red tape and complications that often keep injured workers from receiving the benefits they need.

We're ready to partner with you at this critical time. Contact our firm today to request a confidential case evaluation with our workers' compensation attorneys in Durham, NC.

What Injuries are Covered by NC Workers' Comp?

Not every injury will be covered by workers' compensation insurance, so it's important to discuss your situation with a skilled workers' comp lawyer in Durham, but in general the below types of injuries are covered:

  • Injuries directly resulting from a work accident
  • Aggravation of previous injuries as a result of a work accident
  • Additional injuries resulting from a previous work injury (for example, if a back injury later results in damage to the workers' knee)

No matter what stage in the claims process you might be, our knowledgeable Durham workers' compensation attorneys are ready to assist you.

North Carolina Workers' Compensation Laws

Following a dangerous accident involving one of their employees, employers are required to report the incident to their insurer. The employee may then be instructed to visit insurer-approved doctors to evaluate the extent of the injury and determine any needed care and benefits.

Unfortunately, like other insurers, workers' compensation insurers are looking to protect their bottom line. That means many of them will look to minimize the claims of injured workers, offer "low-ball" benefits, or deny the claim outright for dubious reasons. That is why legal counsel is often needed for these claims: To make sure the claimant's rights are respected and the gravity of their injury is fully recognized by the insurer.
