Work-Related Accidents Happen In Every Work-Place
Work-related accidents and injuries happen in almost any work-place environment, from retail stores to construction sites and hospitals. Any of the above injuries can be severe or even result in death, regardless of the working environment.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016 there were 174 workplace fatalities in North Carolina.
Any person who has been injured while at the workplace should immediately contact a Wilmington Workers’ Compensation Lawyer. An experienced attorney can help you determine the benefits and rights they are entitled to under, North Carolina Worker’s Compensation Act.
In North Carolina employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance if they employ more than 3 people. In most cases your chances of being covered by workers’ compensation insurance are good. Employers are required to carry insurance for both part-time and full-time employees.
There are some exceptions to this general policy. If an employer has hired a person who is working as a true Independent Contractor, the employer is exempt from providing those individuals with workers’ comp insurance.
A Wilmington workers’ compensation lawyer can help represent those suffering from:
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries
• Rotator cuff injuries
• Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
• Loss of limb or loss of vision
• Herniated disc and other lumbar and cervical back injuries
No two work injuries are the same. Some have an immediate effect such as a broken bone or severe laceration, or a work injury can be a gradual process, something that happens over time such as, carpal tunnel, which is considered a repetitive stress injury.
Unfortunately, some injuries can be very extreme, even fatal. Regardless of the severity of the injury, if anyone is injured at the workplace they need to contact a Wilmington Worker’s Compensation Lawyer to review their information and advise them on how to move forward with their claim.
