Workers' Compensation Claims & Benefits
An injured worker may have the right to file a workers' compensation claim for virtually any type of accident or injury that occurs at the workplace or during the performance of his or her job duties. This applies regardless of who was "at fault" for causing the injury or accident, unless the case involves a worker who was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Some of the types of cases that may be covered include work-related auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, heavy equipment injuries, repetitive motion injuries, injuries from heavy lifting and illness caused by hazardous exposure at the workplace.
Worker's Compensation Law is lengthy and complex and you need the assistance of a professional legal mind to help you attain the maximum compensation available to you. The compensation laws contain information for employers and employees in North Carolina and they define who is eligible for compensations as well as the amount of compensation that can be paid to workers who have been injured. Greenville Workers' Compensation lawyer Timothy E. Burch has in-depth knowledge of these laws and regulations and knows how to use the law on your behalf. Under the North Carolina Workers' Compensation Act, NCGS Chapter 97, an employee is not held liable even if he or she was partially or wholly at fault in the accident. The act also states that all compensation that is received for injury or disability is tax exempt. Due to the statute of limitations on most Workers' Comp Claims, it is imperative that you contact our law office today.
Most employers throughout North Carolina are required to carry workers' compensation insurance, which covers the payment of claims for work accidents and injuries. By filing a claim of this kind, an employee may be able to receive benefits for medical care and regular payments for
lost wages while unable to work. These benefits may have a significant impact on an injured employee's ability to work toward a more secure future by lessening or eliminating the financial impact that the injuries may have had.

In the presence of wrongful termination or bad faith practices by the insurer, your lawyer can protect your legal rights and interests while seeking the highest amount of benefits possible on your behalf.
