Do You Have a Case?

If you were injured while at work or are suffering from an illness caused by work-related conditions, you have rights and may be owed compensation. Here are some factors that may help you determine if you have a case:

Work-related injuries should be reported immediately to your employer. Failure to timely report a claim can negatively impact your entitlement to benefits.

When filing a formal case, you have to meet the legal deadline called the statute of limitations. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for workers’ compensation claims is two years from the date of injury or discovery of illness. In the majority of cases, you must file your case before the two-year mark if you want a chance at compensation. However, every situation is unique, and there are exceptions to this time limit, so it’s important to contact a Greensboro, NC, workers’ comp lawyer to ensure you don’t miss any deadlines.

If you’re still unsure if you have a right to compensation for your injuries, our team will review your case for free. Contact our workers’ comp attorneys today so we can get started.

What Compensation Can I Receive?

With mounting bills and lost wages from time off work, you may be wondering what compensation you can recover. If you were injured on the job, you have the right to compensation for your injury-related expenses.

Here is a breakdown of some of the expenses covered by workers’ comp:

Your workers’ comp settlement should compensate you for medical expenses related to your workplace injury. This includes but is not limited to emergency room charges, appointments, prescriptions, surgeries, rehabilitation, and assistive devices such as wheelchairs or crutches, and more.

If your work-related injuries or illnesses have limited or are going to limit your ability to work, you may qualify for disability benefits. These benefits help partially supplement wages lost during your recovery time.

There are multiple types of disability benefits you may be entitled to depending on your circumstances:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD) applies if you are completely disabled and therefore unable to work during a short period of time while recovering. For example, if you are suffering from a bone fracture that limits your ability to work at all for two months, you may receive compensation for those lost wages.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) applies if you are only able to work fewer hours than usual due to your partial disability. For example, if you suffered a concussion and can only work part-time, you may receive compensation for the difference in your usual paycheck.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) applies if your injuries will prevent you from ever returning to the same type of work in the future. For example, if you are suffering from a permanent, incurable back injury that limits your mobility, you may be eligible for weekly payments.
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) applies if your injuries are permanent and limit the amount of income you may be able to earn as a result of the injury but still allow you to work in some capacity. For example, if you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome that limits how many hours you can perform consecutively.

Tragically, workplace accidents can result in severe injuries that lead to untimely death. When the unthinkable happens to a loved one at work, you may have a right to compensation. These benefits support surviving family members with costs related to the injury and death while also possibly supplementing the loss of income.

If you think you are owed compensation for your work-related accident, contact our experienced Greensboro, NC, workers’ comp lawyers today. We will be your champions and help you seek the maximum amount you deserve for your losses.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

It pays to have the support of a team that is experienced with the workers’ comp system. While you could seek compensation on your own, you may not have the chance to receive the maximum settlement you are owed. The right workers’ comp attorney will know how to seek compensation you may not realize you were entitled to collect, compile all the necessary evidence, advocate for your right to medical evaluation, and handle any formal hearings on your behalf.

Plus, when you work with our team at Lewis & Keller, you’ll have the support of a Board-Certified and award-winning legal team to back you up. We understand the toll your accident has taken on you and we know how to seek compensation on your behalf so you can focus on what is most important: recovering.

How to File for Workers’ Comp in North Carolina

We understand that filing your workers’ compensation claim can be overwhelming and you may not know what to do next. Let’s break down your best next steps and what you need to know after a workplace injury in North Carolina.

Inform Your Employer

It is essential that you inform your employer immediately after the accident that caused your injury or the discovery of your work-related illness. Depending on your employer’s policies, there may be paperwork required when you are injured. This paperwork can be used as evidence that may help maximize the compensation you are able to receive, but it is most helpful the sooner it is filled out.

Seek Medical Attention

Even if your workplace injury isn’t severe and wouldn’t normally require medical attention, it is in your best interest to have your injuries evaluated as soon as possible. Your medical record will influence your workers’ comp case. If you haven’t sought medical attention, your case could be denied based on a lack of evidence of your injuries.

Find Legal Advice and Support

Your employer will file your workers’ comp claim, but there is a chance you could be denied the benefits you are owed. In most denial cases, you can request an appeal. Though, this likely means preparing for a formal hearing, which is when you’ll need a lawyer.

It can benefit you to stay ahead of the game and contact a Greensboro, North Carolina workers’ comp lawyer as soon as you can. Our team of experienced attorneys is ready to help you, so don’t hesitate to share your story today and receive your free case review!
