Greensboro Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Seek Skilled Assistance After a Workplace Accident
Whether you work in a dangerous trade like construction or sit at a desk the majority of your day, workplace accidents can and do happen. Luckily, the state of North Carolina provides a way for injured workers to recover, as most employers are legally required to carry sufficient workers’ compensation insurance.
It may feel overwhelming to pursue a workers’ comp claim, but you are entitled to receive benefits if you were injured on company time or property. Our Greensboro lawyers at Crumley Roberts can help you navigate this process from beginning to end and can help you seek compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, long-term disabilities, and other needs.
What Will Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation insurance can account for a wide range of accidents, and as long as you were on the clock or acting on behalf of your company, your injuries could be covered. Of course, you need to report the injury within 30 days and act promptly to receive medical attention at the request of your employer. The faster you act on your claim, the more likely you will be to secure a positive outcome.
Here are some of the damages that workers’ compensation insurance often covers:
- Lost wages,
- Time off work,
- Travel to medical appointments,
- Medical expenses,
- Drug and medication costs,
- Physical therapy,
- Funeral costs (if for your loved one), and
- Short- and long-term disability.
Although your employer will not face any legal consequences when you file a claim, they may still try to block or to interfere with your benefits, particularly if the company is concerned about rising insurance premiums. In those cases, it is especially important to discuss your case with a qualified and compassionate attorney.
