NC Workers Comp Reform News – www.ProtectNCworkers.com goes live February 17th

For those of you that have been following the news in the NC Workers Comp Reform world recently – you know that injured workers throughout North Carolina are in a fight for their lives… literally.

The insurance companies and big business lobbies want to limit the benefits paid to injured NC workers to 9 and a half years – even if that worker is totally and completely disabled – which means that they can never go back to work.  This is a fiscally irresponsible bill that will do nothing but shift the cost to care for these injured workers from the insurance companies to the taxpayers of our great state.

I have been and will continue to be posting quite regularly on this NC Workers Comp reform on this website, but there is a new website that goes live tomorrow – www.protectNCworkers.com, that will have lots of news and information about the upcoming legislation.

Also, if you have not already done so, it is important that you contact your legislator and tell them to vote NO on this legislation and stick up for the rights of all North Carolinians!

Of course, if you need more information on this bill, please feel free to contact my office at (919) 460-5422.
