Whether you sit behind a desk, stand on a mill or factory floor, sit in the driver’s seat, or stand behind a counter, you work hard. You work long hours. You do your job well and you meet or exceed your obligations to your employer. If you get hurt on the job, you expect your employer to meet their obligation to provide the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve and need to pay for your recovery, make up for the wages you’ve lost, and get you back on your feet and back to work. Sometimes, however, companies and their insurance companies don’t live up to their end of the bargain and fail to pay workers’ compensation to injured workers.
When that happens, Manger Law Firm can help. We stand up for the rights of injured North Carolina workers, getting them the benefits they’ve earned when they’ve suffered a work-related injury.
We Help Injured North Carolina Workers Get the Benefits They Deserve
As is the case in every other state, North Carolina has a workers’ compensation system that is designed to work as a win-win system for both workers and employers. On the one hand, employees can’t file personal injury suits against their employers for on-the-job injuries, saving those employers from costly lawsuits, big verdicts, and legal fees. In exchange, employers are supposed to get injured workers their benefits and money quickly and without the need for filing a lawsuit or proving fault.
But like all insurance companies, workers’ compensation insurance companies want to pay out as little in claims as possible. That’s why insurers and employers can and will deny that an injury is work-related, or dispute the nature and extent of claimed injuries in an effort to avoid paying benefits.
If your employer has denied or disputed your claim for workers’ compensation benefits, getting them to meet their obligations can be a daunting challenge. The laws, rules, and procedures governing North Carolina’s workers’ compensation are complex and detailed, and workers are up against lawyers who know the system and know how to defeat their claims. That is why workers need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on their side who will work as hard as they do and who will relentlessly fight for their rights and benefits
