Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Charlotte, NC and Surrounding Areas
In the aftermath of an on-the-job accident, one may find it impossible to get up and go back to work on his or her own strength. That’s why our state makes sure that employers provide workers’ compensation, which provides money and benefits to employees that are injured on the job. These benefits replace the income that is lost when you are unable to work and help you heal as completely and as quickly as possible.
Workers' Compensation is an insurance program put in place by the federal government to medically treat and financially compensate employees who have been injured on the job. Each state mandates its individual laws for the administration of workers’ compensation claims, payments, procedures, and legal proceedings. If you have been injured or became ill while performing work as an employee, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. It is important to know your rights to be sure you receive the appropriate medical care and compensation due to you.
Workplace injuries can be very complex and range from simple injuries that heal in a few weeks to devastating ones that may never resolve. No matter where you fall on this spectrum, Phillips and McCrea can help determine what needs to be done to protect your rights and help you get what you deserve.
