Why do I need a workers’ compensation lawyer?

June 30, 2013, by Michael A. DeMayo

If you have been hurt at work, you may find yourself asking this question.  Well, you probably have received a form from your employer that is the functional equivalent of a form that has been submitted to the industrial commission.  It may seem like the employer and the workers’ compensation insurance carrier are working together to make sure that you are taken care of; however, understanding the requirements imposed on employers can make it easier to see that providing certain paperwork to an injured employee is a rule and not a simple nicety. 

The North Carolina Industrial Commission imposes certain requirements on employers and you want to make sure that your rights are protected.  Arguably, one of the most important reasons to have a workers’ compensation lawyer in Charlotte is because it may help your employer and the insurance company recognize the seriousness of your claim.

Often times people who may handle a claim directly can become upset and this may likely lead to fallouts at work and likely create a hostile work environment.  If you’ve been hurt and need to be taken seriously, call the Law Offices of Michael A.
