Do I Have a Case?

Workers’ comp claims can be tricky to navigate, especially in North Carolina. If you are wondering if you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, take a look at the following circumstances we will evaluate in your free case review to help you determine how to move forward.
Was the Accident Unexpected?

Workers’ compensation in North Carolina requires the accident to be something unexpected in a normal workday in order for you to be eligible to receive benefits. If you work in a warehouse moving boxes, for example, and you hurt your back moving boxes, you may have a tricky time getting benefits. Our Charlotte, NC, workers’ comp lawyers can help you evaluate your accident to determine if you are eligible for benefits based on this rule.

Are You Unable to Work?

In North Carolina, workers’ compensation usually supplies benefits to those who were injured to the point of being unable to work and earn a paycheck. Workers’ comp laws in North Carolina can be difficult to navigate, but our attorneys can help you determine if you’re eligible and seek the money you need.

Are You Within the Legal Timeframe to Seek Benefits?

In North Carolina, you usually have two years after the date of the injury to legally file for workers’ comp benefits. Time is of the essence, which is why it is so important that you contact an experienced workers’ comp lawyer as soon as possible to make sure you don’t miss your chance to seek the compensation you deserve.

What Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

Wondering what compensation you may be able to get with the help of one of our Charlotte, NC, workers’ comp lawyers? Let’s look at some of the main benefits we help injured workers obtain every day.
Medical Benefits

Medical benefits help cover your medical bills, whether they’re from doctor’s appointments, medication, physical therapy, surgery, or even transport to your appointments.

Temporary partial disability benefits are wage-loss benefits available to those who have been released to work by the doctor but only part-time or with restrictions.

Temporary Total Disability

Temporary total disability benefits are wage benefits awarded to those who can’t work at all but are expected to get better and return to work.

Permanent Partial Disability

Permanent partial disability benefits are wage benefits given to those who are not going to get any better but can still work to some degree, even if it’s limited.

How to File for Workers’ Comp

First, you need to report your injury to your employer within 30 days of your injury, giving your employer written documentation of what the injury is, how it happened, and the date and approximate time when it happened. Keep a copy for yourself. Doing this will give you the best shot at receiving benefits. Then, your employer should ensure that Form 18, 18B, or 18M is completed as appropriate to your job and injury. From there, you and your employer will work with the company’s insurance provider to provide you the possible benefits to which you are entitled.
