Raleigh, NC Workers’ Compensation: Information & Resources for Injured Workers
Each and every day, workers in North Carolina are injured on the job. When this happens, their exclusive remedy is to file a Workers Compensation claim. This can be scary, stressful and traumatic for many people. On the one hand, you are injured and unable to work, while on the other hand, you have relationships with your employer and co-workers and don’t want to be seen as someone who is just trying to get benefits without working.
At The Hart Law Firm, we believe that people who are able to work should, but at the same time we also understand that there are many workers in North Carolina who have real injuries that prohibit them from doing the job that they were previously capable of. If this sounds like your situation, I would encourage you to read on…
In this website, we have provided a wealth of information for anyone who has been injured in a workplace accident. Many lawyers disagree with this approach – they would rather you get information directly from them, after you have signed up as a new client. However, we realize that not everyone needs a lawyer to help them.
That being said, there are some cases where time may be of the essence and we would encourage you to contact a Workers Comp Attorney immediately if any of the following apply to you:
- You doctor has cleared you to go back to work (with restrictions) and you have been asked to report back to work to do something other than your previous job
- You have received a Form 24 indicating that the insurance company wants to cut off your benefits
- You returned to work and were thereafter let go because they didn’t have enough work for you to do
- Your Workers Comp claim has been denied by the insurance company
- A Vocational Rehabilitation Nurse has been assigned to your case and is asking you to attend appointments that you are unable to get to
- You were injured at work, don’t know what to do, and are just too stressed to do anything
Also, we have posted numerous articles about workers compensation laws in North Carolina, as well as some helpful tips for you to consider as you consider your legal options and secrets that the insurance company doesn’t want you to know. Please feel free to review these articles and give us a call at (919) 460-5422 if you have any questions.
