If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, including compensation for medical costs and a tax-free portion of your pre-injury income, or "Average Weekly Wage." The good news is that you are "covered" by the North Carolina Workers' Compensation Act as soon as your employment begins, and regardless of who may have been at fault in causing your injury.
The bad news is that it is very difficult to obtain all of the information you will need in deciding how best to pursue your claim. The interests of employers and insurance carriers are often directly adverse to those of injured workers. That is to say, the more serious your injury, the more costly your workers' compensation claim is likely to be. As a result, the first priority of the employer and insurance company will probably be to control costs. Regrettably, they may do everything in their power--whether lawful or unlawful--to prevent you from receiving the benefits to which you are entitled.
This is why consulting with an experienced North Carolina workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible can be so important when you find yourself forced into an adversarial system that is unlike any you have encountered before. Luckily, you have come to the right place.
