Work Accidents, Disability, Workers' Comp, & More

Workplace accidents and injuries can take many different forms, with some of them involving a one-time event and others involving a condition that develops over time from stress or from exposure to another harmful factor. The defining feature, of course, is that a work injury or illness is suffered on the job or as a result of the job.

If you were hurt on the job or as a result of your work, your employer or its insurance company may challenge the validity of your injury claim — the company may assert that the injury actually happened off the job or say that a condition was really a pre-existing one. If you are facing this type of opposition or if you are just starting to consider your options, consulting an experienced lawyer can help you decide what to do next. Contact us for guidance with your case.

Wilmington Workers' Compensation Cases

In some situations, workers' compensation insurance will (or should) cover an injury or illness, providing for lost income and medical treatment on a temporary or permanent basis, depending on the situation. If you have a legitimate workers' compensation claim or if you have had a claim denied, our attorneys can help you plan your next steps.

Third-Party Personal Injury Claims

In other situations, we pursue claims against third parties who are also at fault. These claims are complicated and even when you recover, you will have to deal with a claim from the workers' compensation carrier and your employer for amounts that they have paid for your medical treatment and other benefits. In these instances, North Carolina has a statutory procedure to limit this reimbursement, and in some instances completely defeat the lien. In order to accomplish a full recovery, we help our clients deal with the liens and claims for reimbursement and go to court to enforce their rights.
