North Carolina & South Carolina Workers’ Compensation
There are many benefits offered under the North Carolina and South Carolina workers’ compensation laws and having the right experienced lawyer is critical for receiving the full advantage of the benefits you deserve.
In order to receive workers’ compensation benefits from your prior or current employer, your injuries must have been caused by tasks performed during your employment with the company.
Workers’ compensation laws are in place to protect you if you’re injured or disabled on the job. Under North Carolina and South Carolina state coverage, employees who are hurt or disabled in a workplace accident are entitled to medical expense coverage and wage replacement. North Carolina and South Carolina workers’ compensation also provides benefits for dependents when an employee is killed from a tragic on-the-job accident or illness.
Benefits are also available to employees who develop an occupational disease as a result of prior or current employment. Lung damage, lead poisoning, skin irritation and carpal tunnel are typical occupational diseases that may occur as a result of your work activity or environment. Proper attorney representation will keep you from missing money and benefits you deserve from insurance companies.
