What You Need To Know About Workers’ Compensation
When you file for workers’ compensation benefits, you are not suing your employer to receive money for your medical expenses and other bills. You are filing a benefits claim with your employer’s insurance provider. North Carolina laws require most employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance coverage in the event their employees get injured while at work.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, you may be entitled to receive benefits to cover costs that include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of sight, hearing or other abilities
- Funeral expenses
- Death claims for survivors
When you work with our attorney, Anthony Burts, he will thoroughly explain the application process so that you know what type of documents you need to provide and where you need to send them. Should your claim be denied, he is qualified to appeal this decision.
Whether you work in a factory, hospital, construction site or any other potentially hazardous worksite, lawyer Burts will act quickly to help you build a strong claim. He will remain by your side throughout the legal process, working to lessen your legal concerns so that you can focus on your recovery.
