Charlotte Workers' Compensation Attorney
Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Charlotte, NC
If you are injured on the job or while performing work-related duties, your employer may be legally obligated to compensate you for medical bills or pay for your medical treatment and wage loss through the workers’ compensation system. In some instances, injured workers navigate the workers’ compensation system with minimal trouble, and don’t need a workers’ compensation lawyer. In other instances, unfortunately, injured workers struggle to obtain fair compensation through the system. A workers’ compensation lawyer in Charlotte, North Carolina can help you obtain the fair compensation you deserve.
At the personal injury law firm of Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys have decades of experience fighting for injured workers’ rights to fair financial compensation. We serve clients throughout the Charlotte area and the surrounding parts of North Carolina.
Our attorneys have in-depth experience advocating for injured workers in the state workers’ compensation system and on behalf of federal railroad employees under the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA).
Fees in Workers’ Compensation Cases
In workers’ compensation cases, we collect attorneys’ fees from our injured clients on a contingency fee basis only. This means that we do not get paid unless and until our clients collect the workers’ compensation owed to them. Unlike some other law firms, we do not take a fee on our clients’ weekly disability benefits when a workers’ compensation insurer admits these are owed and admits the compensability of a claim.
When Should You Consult an Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Charlotte, NC
If you have a minor injury and your workers’ compensation application is accepted without complaint, then you may be able to navigate the system without legal assistance. However, if you have any trouble obtaining compensation, we recommend getting help from a knowledgeable Charlotte workers’ compensation lawyer.
Signs that point toward the need to get a Charlotte workers’ compensation lawyer on your side include:
- Significant workplace accidents involving back injuries, injuries requiring surgery, or catastrophic injuries, such as brain damage or paralysis
- Accidents caused in whole or in part by broken or defective machinery or non-employee contractors — in these cases, we may be able to pursue additional compensation in a private personal injury lawsuit
- Incorrectly calculated disability benefits
- A return-to-work order from your workers’ compensation doctor before you are fully recovered
- An impairment rating that does not accurately reflect the extent of your injuries
- An insurance company’s refusal to approve necessary medical treatment
- Denial of your workers’ compensation claim
