Every year, thousands of people are injured throughout the country simply by performing their job duties. Tragically, some of these workers die on the job. While the workers’ compensation system is in place to help provide compensation to injured workers, navigating this system is not always easy. Having an experienced workman’s compensation attorney by your side during this process can be critical during this difficult time.
Stewart Law Offices and their experienced workers’ compensation lawyers in Charlotte, North Carolina help people every day who have been injured at work in car accidents, slips, trips, and falls, fires, explosions, and other workplace accidents. If you were injured at work and had to miss time away from your job due to your injury, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your claim, you may be entitled to benefits for medical treatment, partial replacement of your lost wages, and permanent disability, but your ability to recover such benefits may depend on having a workers’ comp attorney in Charlotte, NC to assist with your case.
The process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be complicated. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Stewart Law Offices can help injured workers file the necessary paperwork, prove their injury is a compensable injury, and maximize their claim. They also have extensive experience handling all levels of the appeals process and all related paperwork, including Form 50, which is a form sent to the Workers’ Compensation Commission that summarizes the work injury and your right to compensation. They can take a leading role during any scheduled hearing, presenting evidence and examining witnesses. Their goal is to obtain the benefits you need and deserve after being hurt on the job.
Workers’ compensation attorneys located in Charlotte, NC generally advise their clients to report their injury immediately to their supervisor. If you wait more than 90 days to report the accident, you can risk losing your right to any benefits you otherwise would have been entitled to.
