Damages You Could Collect in Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
According to the Workers’ Compensation Act, a North Carolina law covering workers’ compensation, workers filing a claim may be eligible for many different benefits. These benefits help employees, and their families financially support themselves despite the loss of household income.
If you believe you and your family could use these benefits after a workplace injury, you can file a comp claim by yourself or with the help of one of our firm’s workers’ compensation attorneys.
You May Qualify for Medical Cost Reimbursement
You could qualify for this kind of reimbursement if you meet several conditions. First, after your incident, you must have sought immediate medical attention. Another requirement is that you must have told the doctor that the incident occurred in the workplace. Yet another condition is that you must be able to show that your injuries prevent you from working. The final requirement is to follow North Carolina’s rules about future treatment.
An attorney from our firm will explain the conditions to you in greater detail and help you meet each of them. Then, we’re very confident we can make sure you qualify for medical cost reimbursement if you need it.
How You Could Qualify for Wage Reimbursement
If you cannot perform your job due to your workplace injuries, you may be able to get reimbursed for some of your wages. However, you might have some issues with receiving the money. For example, you might not start receiving it as soon as you need it, or you may disagree with when the reimbursement should end.
In such situations, a workers compensation lawyer from our firm can help. For instance, the lawyer can stand up for you against the insurer if they believe you should return to work sooner than you can.
You May Also Qualify for a Disability Settlement
If your accident was especially serious, you might have sustained a disability. In addition, if your injury or an illness has left you unable to function the same way you used to, you may qualify for a disability claim as a component of your workers’ compensation judgment.
Your attorney can compile the evidence we need so you can qualify for disability payments. We’ll also help you keep the payments coming in for as long as you need them.
