Raleigh Workers Compensation Lawyers

The Raleigh Workers Compensation Lawyers at The Hart Law Firm assist individuals or their loved ones that have been injured in a workplace accident.

Workers Compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees who are injured at work.  It is also frequently referred to as Workers’ Comp or Workman’s Comp insurance.  As a trade off for these benefits, the employee relinquishes their right to sue their employer for damages or negligence.

In North Carolina, the Workers Compensation system was established in 1929 and is administered through the North Carolina Industrial Commission.  Generally speaking, if you are injured in a workplace accident or through an occupational disease, you will be entitled to receive weekly benefits (2/3 of your Average Weekly Wage), as well as have your medical expenses paid for.
