In some cases, we can pursue multiple types of compensation. As North Carolina and South Carolina Workers’ Compensation attorneys, our highest priority is helping you overcome the frustration you are facing so you can get well on the road to recovery, both in terms of your health and your finances.
In the Carolinas, the rules that govern Workers’ Compensation law and the type of injuries that can be covered by a Workers’ Compensation claim are highly nuanced. It can often be overwhelming to find the appropriate forms and follow the strict procedures involved in a Workers’ Compensation claim. Not every on-the-job injury can be dealt with using Workers’ Compensation.
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- On-the-job and workplace accidents
- Nursing home negligence
- Accidents caused by the negligence of another party
If you are injured at work while doing the same tasks that you perform on a daily basis, then you are not necessarily entitled to compensation. The injury must be sustained due to a workplace accident (i.e. equipment malfunction, safety procedures that have not been followed, etc.) or through repetitive motion injuries (i.e. repeated activities that have caused occupational diseases like carpal tunnel, vision loss, hearing loss, or lung disorders).
Our law firm can answer complicated questions such as:
- Does my injury qualify me for benefits?
- What do workers’ compensation benefits entail?
- What do I do about the income I have lost while I can’t work?
- What is a disability rating?
- How do I know when I should return to work or if I can return to work?
- How can I get the medical attention I believe I need from a doctor I trust?
If you have suffered a work injury, it’s very important to immediately report your injury to your employer. In most cases, your employer will give you information on how to get treatment and get your work comp claim started. However, if your employer will not give you the care you are entitled to, you should immediately seek legal assistance. At Levine Law Group, our Workers’ Compensation lawyers have experience in all types of work comp claims with a variety of work injuries. Our experienced attorneys are eager to help you with your work comp injury claims.
