Charlotte Workers' Compensation

Under the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, employees within the state are entitled to compensation if injured on the job. If you’re injured, you should immediately report the incident to your employer and follow your employer’s instructions regarding where to obtain medical treatment. Be sure to also file the appropriate claim form with the North Carolina Industrial Commission (“Commission”). Once your claim is approved, you should be compensated for medical expenses and, if disabled, lost wages.

But what if your employer denies your claim and you are left with medical bills and lost income? Or what if your employer’s insurance company asks you to sign a settlement agreement? That’s when you should contact the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Morgan & Morgan. The attorneys in our Charlotte office understand North Carolina workers’ compensation law and will work tirelessly to make sure you get all the benefits to which you are entitled. Start the process today by completing a free, no-obligation case evaluation form.

  • Are You Eligible for Workers’ Compensation?

    Generally, to be eligible for workers’ compensation payments, you must have been injured by an accident during the course and breadth of your employment. Also, your employer must fall within the scope of the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. 

    In some situations, occupational diseases such as “black lung” and even Covid 19 may be covered if you, as an employee, were at an increased risk of contracting the disease compared to the general public and if hazardous working conditions substantially contributed to the disease. Make sure the events that gave rise to your injury are well-documented.

  • What Compensation is Available?

    Under North Carolina law, for an eligible workers’ compensation claim, your employer must provide “medical treatment,” i.e. any treatment or expense that would cure the injury, lessen the disability, or relieve pain. If a doctor imposes work restrictions and/or determines that you are temporarily or permanently disabled as a result of the work-related injury, the employer may also be required to compensate you for lost wages. If your loved one has died as a result of an on-the-job injury or occupational disease, their dependents may be eligible for burial expenses and a weekly death benefit.

  • What if a Dispute Arises Between You and Your Employer?

    Disputes often arise between an employee and employer regarding a workers’ compensation claim. Your employer, for example, may dispute your eligibility for compensation or may disagree with your doctor as to the extent of your injuries. If your claim is disputed or denied, you’ll want an experienced Morgan & Morgan attorney fighting for you.

    The Commission makes available dispute resolution services, including mediation, and, if necessary, a hearing before a Deputy Commissioner. Your Charlotte attorney will guide you through every step of the process and won’t allow you to be bullied by an insurance company. Don’t sign away your rights!  Contact us today for your free case evaluation.
