Construction work is consistently ranked in the top twenty most dangerous jobs in the U.S.
At last count, preliminary data showed that there were 7.2 million construction jobs throughout the country, marking the highest employment level for the construction industry in a decade.
No matter your role on a construction site from painters, electricians, framers, roofers, masons, welders to installers each job comes with a specific set of risks most of us do not encounter in the workplace.
Last year alone, throughout the U.S., there were approximately 150,000 construction site accident injuries that claimed more than 5,200 lives, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The most common causes of construction accident injuries in North Carolina include:
If you have been injured in a construction accident in North Carolina, contact our skilled workers’ compensation attorneys in Charlotte today to learn more about your legal rights and options to pursue the benefits you are entitled to as a worker in the Tar Heel state.
Will My Construction Injuries Be Covered? Ask Martha.
With very few exceptions, all businesses that employ three or more employees — whether they are sole proprietors, LLCs, partnerships, or incorporated — must carry workers’ compensation insurance, or qualify as self-insured employers as required by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act.
Because this is true, denied workers’ compensation claims are not only incredibly confusing for our North Carolina workforce, they are devastating.
Workers’ compensation denials are often based on one of three factors:
At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., we believe you are injured, and we want to help protect your rights, eligibility, and ability to successfully pursue workers’ compensation even if you have already been denied coverage.
We Believe You, and In You. Teamwork Produces Results. Ask Us How Today.
At Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., our specialized workers’ compensation attorneys in Charlotte want to make one thing very clear to our clients: It is illegal for your employer to fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
Retaliatory employment discrimination, or retaliation, is strictly forbidden under North Carolina Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Act (REDA).
Getting hurt at workplaces all our clients in a difficult position. And we know pursuing your employer’s insurance provider for compensation after an injury often comes with torturous feelings that filing a workers’ compensation claim is akin to biting the hand that feeds you.
Other workers with an employer who has been good to them, do not want to feel as though they are filing a claim that will cast a negative light on their organization — or cost them money.
Unfortunately, some of these employees are met with the opposite reaction from their employer and lose their jobs because of filing a workers’ compensation claim, literally adding insult to injury.
If you were fired while pursuing or receiving workers’ compensation, your employer must show and prove there was a legitimate reason for terminating your employment.
Otherwise, the termination could be seen as retaliatory, which will require working with our law firm and partnering employment attorneys to help you get your job back, recover the wages you should have been making, and even money for your legal fees.
In some cases, your employer may also face punitive fines or pay you a settlement, which can empower you to take the time you need to find a new, respected position in our North Carolina workforce.
Ask Martha How She Can Help You Get Back to Work.
At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., our Charlotte personal injury lawyers know that our residents can get hurt anytime, anywhere, when negligence is a factor.
Whether it is a vehicle collision or harmful work-related circumstances, our clients’ lives are changed forever when a catastrophic injury including Traumatic Brain Injuries occur.
The fact is, nearly three million people visited emergency rooms throughout the U.S. last year seeking care for traumatic brain injuries.
The Centers for Disease Control reports that approximately 166 Americans die from Traumatic Brain Injuries, or TBI-related injuries each day, totaling nearly 61,000 deaths each year.
The major causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries are listed by the CDC as:
Unfortunately, many of the same causes of TBIs often coincide with the most common types of construction-related accidents, which place our clients’ lives and livelihoods in danger.
When you cannot work because of a Traumatic Brain Injury, your extensive medical care, lost wages, and inability to support your family will only compound the challenges you face during your recovery.
We can help you focus on reaching the positive light that seems so far away, so you can face your TBI with confidence knowing our skilled Charlotte personal injury lawyers are working tirelessly to pursue the outcome you deserve, so you can get your life back.
Are My Personal Injuries Eligible for Compensation? Ask Martha.
Losing a loved one during a work accident or to negligence is one of the most devastating events any family can go through.
Unfortunately, the grieving process often makes it difficult to understand how that loss will affect your family’s finances and overall livelihood until the challenges continue to mount.
In North Carolina, the personal representative, or executor, of the deceased person’s estate may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim to pursue the financial recovery they deserve for their loss.
The court will appoint a personal representative if the decedent did not leave a will, or if the person named therein will not or cannot pursue a wrongful death claim on his or her own.
Depending on how your loved one lost his or her life, your benefits may vary. Our skilled and compassionate Charlotte wrongful death lawyers will walk you through your eligibility to file a claim while outlining your financial recovery options, so you can seek justice on behalf of your entire family.

Thousands of workers across the United States are injured every day in workplace accidents. When people are hurt on the job, they don’t always know what steps they need to take to protect themselves. Being unable to work can be as difficult as the injury itself because people take pride in their work and their ability to make a living.
Some employees wait until after the deadline to file a workers’ compensation claim and miss out on receiving necessary medical treatment and compensation for permanent or partial disabilities brought on by workplace injuries. At Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., we take the time to teach our clients about their legal rights and guide them through the entire workers’ compensation process.
We work as a team with our clients to craft the best solution for their unique needs because no two clients are alike. We are committed to treating each other and every client with respect.

Our attorneys have focused our practice on workers’ comp cases for years and, as a result, have worked with a variety of workers across a wide range of industries. Accidents and injuries can happen in any industry not just construction and when they do, you deserve to be compensated.

Navigating the claims process can be tricky, but we can stand by your side each step of the way and educate you on your case and the law so you feel informed and empowered. Whether you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident or have repetitive stress injuries, you can trust us to know how to secure your entitled benefits.
“I was never left in the dark- they always kept me informed. Ms. Ramsay never gave up on me. My questions were always answered and explained and she was always prepared for every phase.”
We Address All Of Your Questions:
Generally, you can rely on two main factors to determine whether your injuries qualify for coverage: first, if you’re an employee, and second, if your injury occurred as a result of your employment. However, there are many other factors that insurance companies and employers take into consideration, and they may deny your claim if, for example, you were intoxicated at work when you were injured, or if you’re in a profession that isn’t covered by the workers’ comp system. It’s important to hire a workers’ comp attorney who can assess your situation and determine whether you have a right to benefits.
When you receive workers’ compensation benefits, you can have your medical bills covered, including the costs of all office visits, treatments, hospital stays, and procedure-like surgeries. You can also receive your regular pay to make up for lost wages, as well as temporary or permanent disability payments. After a loved one dies on the job, their surviving family members can receive death benefits, including a stipend for funeral expenses.
Though your eligibility for workers’ comp benefits may seem clear-cut, there are countless claims that are denied by employers and insurance companies for various reasons. Insurance companies often try to undermine or reject claims in an effort to save money, and they do this by looking for any lack of evidence that your injuries are work-related. By having an attorney who can gather the evidence you need to support your claim, you can make sure you receive the benefits you deserve to heal.
