At Crumley Roberts, we truly care about our clients, and if you were injured at work, or if you became ill due to workplace exposure, we want to help you secure the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Workers’ Comp is far from a perfect system, and although insurance companies may say they want to protect your interests, they often fail to provide injured workers with the benefits they need and deserve.
Securing adequate benefits after a work-related accident is absolutely crucial, and can help you pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other associated expenses. Without adequate benefits, you could wind up without adequate care, or you may be deprived of necessary funds.

When Can I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Determining whether or not you have a workers’ compensation claim may be simpler than you might think, as most illnesses and injuries should be covered under your company’s policy. By nature, workers’ compensation is designed to compensate injured or ill workers for any expenses related to their accident. These types of incidents can involve something as simple as a slip-and-fall in the office kitchen, or as complex as a chemical exposure incident. To find out if your incident warrants a claim, we encourage you to reach out to our experienced attorneys.
Workers’ comp claims can include any of the following:
- Burn injuries
- Caught-between accidents
- Chemical exposure
- Falling object injuries
- Falls from great heights
- Machinery accidents
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Slip or trip and falls
- Workplace violence
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation benefits can cover a variety of expenses, including:
- Medical bills
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Physical therapy
If you don’t feel you have access to the type of medical care you need, your attorney can also advocate for your rights and negotiate with the insurance company to help you obtain the care you need. Compensation can also include lost wages and other expenses related to your injury or illness in Charleston.
What if My Claim Was Denied?
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, a large portion of workers’ compensation claims are denied for various reasons, such as your alleged failure to follow the doctor’s recommendations or your employer not filing the correct forms or on time. If you had your claim denied, it may have caused panic at the thought of not being able to pay for your medical bills or other expenses.
At Crumley Roberts, we can work with you to appeal the claim with the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC). We can stand with you through the entire appeals process to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
