How would you prefer to be contacted?*

If you were injured while working in North Carolina, you may be wondering when is the right time for you to hire a lawyer to help you seek the compensation you deserve. Attorney Shannon Warf Wilson is Board-Certified Workers’ Comp Specialist who knows everything there is to know about securing compensation after a work-related accident in North Carolina. Read the following transcript to learn her answer to this frequently asked question.

Attorney Shannon Warf Wilson:
I think I would say let the lawyer decide that for you, sometimes. Give us a call, whether you think the timing is right or not, and we may be able to better say, “Yes, we need to get involved.” A lot of times, folks start out handling them themselves, and it’s a complicated process. There are lots of delays, there are lots of timing issues, and I think the majority of folks that hire a lawyer are just tired of dealing with it on their own. We step in, our team steps in, there’s not a week that goes by that one of us, if not more than one of us, is looking at your file to make sure things are… your checks are coming along like they’re supposed to be. If physical therapy has been authorized, that’s being scheduled. I would say, especially with the recovery being a contingency, why not get the attorney involved early so they can make the claim for the maximum benefit? We’re getting a fee; let us earn our fee.
