We Represent People Hurt at Work and in Car Accidents

In any legal negotiation or dispute, you’ve got to be willing to say, “We’ll see you in court.” That’s what our North Carolina workers' compensation lawyers do.

Workers' Compensation

Hurt on the job (workplace injury) and are curious about your rights as an injured employee? Your case deserves an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

Call Kevin Jones, a Board Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law.

No one expects to find themselves in the position of having suffered serious injuries in an on the job accident, and yet it happens all too often throughout eastern North Carolina.

With so many issues on the line for you as well as your family in the future, you need dedicated representation as soon as possible.

Types of Workplace Injuries

It's technically called Workers’ Compensation in North Carolina.

But a lot of people still call it some variation of that theme, such as: Workmans Compensation, Work Comp, and Workmens Compensation.

It doesn’t much matter to us what you call it, if you were hurt at work or suffered an on the job injury in North Carolina, we want to be your Workers Compensation lawyer.

“Work Comp” cases in North Carolina are as different as the people who are hurt at work. The type of workplace injury often relates to the workplace itself.

North Carolina has a specific “Act” that directs the presentation of legal claims for on the job injuries.

Chapter 97 of the North Carolina General Statutes formally entitled the Workers’ Compensation Act.

Our North Carolina workers' compensation attorneys have substantial experience handling legal matters that involve:

  1. Slip and Fall
  2. Muscle Strains
  3. Moving and Falling Objects
  4. Fire and Explosions
  5. Repetitive Stress Injuries
  6. Crashes and Collisions
  7. Cuts and Lacerations
  8. Inhaling Toxic Fumes
  9. Loud Noises
  10. Walking into Objects
Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits

The North Carolina Worker Compensation Law allows for things like death benefits, disability benefits, medical coverage, treatment, rehabilitation, permanent injury, loss of limb, incapacity, prescriptions and physical therapy.

Sometimes those may include a designation of “permanent partial disability,” requiring a reasonable accommodation at work. Other times the workplace accident is severe, requiring a temporary disability.

And in the worst-case scenario, some employees are entitled to full time disability or permanent total disability. Each case is different.

Medical Care

The type of treatment or medical care necessary after an accident depends on the nature of the injury.

Recovery for medical care may include reimbursement for the Emergency Room, EMT services, transport, and medical bills involved with a trip to the hospital.

Legal matters involving serious trauma from a fall, automobile accident, or wreck may necessitate surgery, anesthesia, ICU Intensive Care and step-down, aftercare, physical therapy, appliances, and occupational therapy.

Personal Injury

Our firm also has substantial experience helping people with “accident cases.” Personal Injury lawyers may prefer to call them “claims for negligence.”

North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, which means the presentation of claims is subject to defenses regarding liability.

The tortfeasor is the person who caused the wreck and was negligent in the operation of the vehicle.

We provide legal representation in matters involving:

  1. Car Accidents
  2. Truck Accidents
  3. Motorcycle Accidents
  4. Boating Accidents

Wrongful Death Claims in NC

If you’ve lost a loved one, please accept our most sincere condolences. We’re sorry for your loss. We understand how hard it may be for you to even consider legal options. We’re here to help with empathy, compassion, and understanding.

Nothing will ever completely make up for your loss. But that doesn’t mean the at fault party and their insurance company should walk away, Scot-free.

There should be consequences for actions. There must be accountability for negligence.

Wrongful death claims don’t focus on retribution or hard feelings. There’s rarely anything mean spirited about it.

Indeed, they are entirely centered on realties of the world: The wrongful death of a loved one has financial consequences. There are bills to be paid. The loss of a lifelong income can ruin a family.

If that happened to you and your family, we’re here to stand up for you. We’ll fight hard for your legal rights. We want you to receive full, fair, and complete compensation for your wrongful death claims in North Carolina.

It’s more than just missing someone you love. There are often overwhelming medical bills, costs for emergency treatment, doctors, hospitals, and even funeral expenses.

We’ll come to you. Don’t accept a quick-settlement from an insurance adjuster, whose sole purpose to save the carrier money and pay you less than you deserve.

Before signing anything, talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer now.

Catastrophic Losses, Negligence Claims, Trauma

Another aspect of accident cases people sometimes forget is this: You may not ever get better. What’s happened to you may last forever.

You may spend the rest of your life seeing doctors, managing pain, and needing special care. That takes money. It’s not inexpensive.

Life care plans often reach millions of dollars, especially for people who have suffered a catastrophic loss due to the negligence of others.

There is also another very harsh reality in Negligence Claims in NC. The insurance companies actively work to burden shift. They don’t want to pay what is right or what’s fair under the NC insurance laws.

They’d rather you go on disability. If it saves them a lifetime of medical bills, they’re more than willing to shift the substantial costs of long-term care to you and me, the taxpayers.

Whether it’s social security or assistance through welfare, Medicaid or Medicare, that’s what happens if there is no insurance, not enough insurance, or the insurance company can figure out how not pay or pay as much as they should.

If you’ve suffered a catastrophic loss, we’re here to help. We’re not going to stand idly by, watching rich insurance companies take advantage of you or your family.

We’ll put our decades of experience to work, dedication our time, training, and hard work to your legal claims. Call now to speak with one of our personal injury lawyers.

We demand fair compensation for negligence and injuries.

If you’ve not been treated fairly by your employer, their insurance company, or the adjuster, it’s time to lawyer up.

If you’re looking for experienced courtroom lawyers and dedicated legal advocates, we’re your law firm. Call now, consultations are free.
