Whether you work in an office, in a laboratory, or a construction site, injuries on the job occur. When they do, they can disrupt your work and your life. Depending on how serious the injury, you and your family could be substantially impacted years to come.
As a result, the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act was passed into law to protect workers and provide benefits to those who are injured, or to the families of those fatally injured, on the job. The Act, however, can be rather complicated. Accordingly, if you have been injured on the job, or a loved one has suffered an injury that resulted in death, you need the help of a qualified North Carolina Workers’ Compensation attorney to guide you through the process.
