Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in New Bern
When You’re Injured at Work, Call King Law Firm!
If you were injured at work, you are probably worried about a vast range of things. When will you be able to get back to work? Who pays for your medical bills? How can you afford to live without your job?
These questions are common because the process for obtaining workers’ compensation is intentionally complicated. Insurance companies and your workplace will try to pay you less than they actually can because they want to save money. Your employer might pressure you to come back to work before you are fully healed and ready. You need an aggressive lawyer to represent you and help you get the compensation you need to fully recover.
Contact our New Bern workers’ compensation attorneys at (910) 455-4065 for a free case evaluation for your workers’ compensation claim or appeal.
Don’t Let Your Employer Take Advantage of You
You need somebody who is on your side during your time of recovery. Employers are infamous for trying to take advantage of their workers who are out because of an injury. It is important to know your rights while you file for workers’ compensation.
Your rights as a worker who was injured generally are:
Your employer cannot fire you
You have the right to see a doctor other than your company doctor
You still retain your right to privacy, so you cannot be spied on in your home
You do not have to return to work until a doctor says you are ready
The insurance company’s offer is not final until you sign
Before you sign anything, call King Law Firm to make sure that you are getting the best deal and maximum compensation in your work injury case.
Does My Injury Qualify for Workers’ Comp?
Just because your injury occurred at work, doesn’t mean it qualifies for workers’ comp. The injury must meet the following criteria: “An employee who is injured as a result of an on the job accident that arises out of their employment.” There must be an identifiable cause to your injury outside of your normal work routine. Whether or not your injury was caused by an accident is frequently contested in workers’ comp cases, which is why you need a skilled and experienced attorney fighting for you.
