North Carolina Workers' Compensation Lawyer

It can be stressful when you have been injured at work. You may need medical care you are not getting. You may not be able to return to work. Not everyone who works in North Carolina is covered by the North Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation Act.

 

Filing a workers compensation claim can be complex. All claims are governed by The Workers Compensation Act, also known as North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 97. Claims are heard by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Common issues may include: (1) what happens after the injury; (2) at what stage should an attorney be hired; (3) what should be done if benefits are not received; and (4) what should be done to receive proper medical care.

 

Personal injuries in many workers compensation claims can result from the negligence of a third party. For example, if a worker is injured by the negligence of someone else while he or she is driving a company vehicle on the job, then the injured employee could have a third party claim. Ferguson Law Firm also handles third party negligence claims, including the negligence of third parties resulting in wrongful death.

 

Employees should immediately report any on-the-job injuries to their supervisor, including the time and date of injury, how it occurred, and what the nature of the injury is.
