How To Talk To Your Doctor After Suffering A North Carolina Workplace Injury

When your doctor asks how you are doing, they want to know specifically about how you have been physically doing since your last visit. To provide this important information, keep a list of your symptoms, track your pain levels, and watch for improvements, or changes due to your treatment. Help your doctor by being a good record keeper, including a calendar of your symptoms. Here are more tips on getting the most from your doctor visits, so you can pursue the best outcome for your North Carolina workers’ compensation claim.

Who Decides When It Is Safe For Me To Return To Work After An Injury?

If you have been receiving workers’ compensation benefits for a workplace injury and are unsure when you can return to work, your doctor is the best person to turn to for advice. Your doctor understands the extent of your injuries, where they are in the healing process, and how returning to work may jeopardize your recovery.

If your North Carolina employer or insurer tries to force you back to work before you are medically able, contact our experienced Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys at the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A. to help ensure your rights are protected for the duration of your claim.

How Long Does It Take For North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Benefits To Begin After An Injury Occurs?

This means we understand the timeline to receive workers’ compensation benefits in North Carolina is specific to each worker’s case and depends on several factors.

Learn more about the general deadlines that must be legally met in each case, to ensure the employee, employer, and insurance provider are all acting in good faith to reach a workers’

compensation resolution or contact our workers’ compensation attorney in Charlotte to get the help you need today.

What Are The Average Workers’ Compensation Payouts In The U.S.?

Our workers’ compensation attorneys in Charlotte understand that work accidents can happen anytime and anywhere. When workers get hurt, it is vital they receive the benefits they deserve. The severity of the injury and the body part that is injured plays a significant role in the compensation that is awarded. Your ability to return to work is another crucial factor. It is important to note, each worker’s injury is unique and there is no exact answer when it comes to how much compensation will be rewarded. However, our Charlotte workers’ compensation lawyers can help assess your case, and the type of benefits you are eligible to pursue, during a free consultation. Contact us today to learn more.

Can I Get Fired For Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim In North Carolina?

In North Carolina, it is against the law for employers to fire employees for filing a workers’ compensation claim. Injured North Carolina workers are protected from being fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim by the Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Act, or REDA. Our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys call these wrongful termination claims.

If you believe your employer is discriminating against you or retaliating against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim, you have the right to file a complaint to pursue damages. Under REDA, workers must file a complaint with the North Carolina Department of Labor within 180 days of the discrimination asserting a REDA violation. Contact our skilled workers’ compensation attorneys in Charlotte today for help pursuing a claim against your employer, so you can pursue the benefits you deserve, without losing your job in the process.

Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims Attorneys in Charlotte, North Carolina

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:

  • The employer refuses to admit that the injury occurred during a work-related activity.
  • The insurance company simply calls you a liar by stating you are not hurt at all.
  • The workers’ compensation laws state your injury occurred in a way that does not comply with the obligation to show that you were injured by accidents, by a specific traumatic incident, or an occupational disease.

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.

Ramsay Law Firm: A Voice for the Injured

By Your Side Throughout Your Case

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.

Charlotte Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

You Deserve The Best

Over 60 Years of Experience

We Address All Of Your Questions:

  • Can I lose my job if I file for benefits?
  • How long is considered “too long” for me to be out of work?
  • Who can treat my injuries?
  • How can I pay for my medical expenses?

Frequently Asked 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.
