Understanding the Role of Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in North Carolina

October 15 , 2023

At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys have 60+ years of combined experience protecting the rights of and fighting for North Carolina workers to help ensure they have access to benefits after suffering a workplace injury or illness.

While we take great pride in what we do and the successes we help obtain on behalf of North Carolina workers, not everyone understands the role of a workers’ compensation attorney.

Unfortunately, that often means injured workers pursue workers’ compensation benefits independently, which can lead to significant disputes and denials.

Here’s an overview of our role in the workers’ compensation process and our services.

What Can the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorneys at Ramsay Law Firm Do For My Claim?

Workers’ compensation claim

Workers’ compensation attorneys in North Carolina are crucial in helping injured workers navigate the complex workers’ compensation system.

This includes providing:

  • Legal Counsel

Our workers’ compensation attorneys offer legal advice to injured workers across the state. We help you understand your rights, obligations, and the North Carolina workers’ compensation process.

We will protect your legal rights throughout the workers’ compensation process to help you avoid common pitfalls, like signing documents that could jeopardize your claim.

  • Filing Claims

Our attorneys can assist with the initial claim filing process. This includes helping you complete the necessary paperwork, ensuring all required documentation is in order, and submitting the claim to the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) or the relevant workers’ compensation carrier.

  • Claim Denials and Disputes

If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, delayed, or disputed, our attorneys can advocate on your behalf. We can investigate the reasons for the denial, gather evidence, and build a strong case for a successful appeal.

  • Appeals

Our lawyers can guide you through the appeals process if your claim is denied. This may include requesting a hearing before the NCIC or pursuing further legal action in the North Carolina court system.

  • Medical Evidence and Expert Witnesses

Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys in Charlotte can help you gather and present medical evidence to support your claim. We may also work with medical experts to provide testimony about the nature and extent of your injuries.

  • Negotiations

Our lawyers are skilled negotiators who can represent your interests during settlement discussions. We aim to secure a fair and just settlement for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs.

  • Legal Representation at Hearings and Trials

If your case proceeds to a formal hearing or trial, our attorneys will represent you in front of the North Carolina Industrial Commission or court, presenting evidence and arguments on your behalf.

  • Third-Party Claims

In cases where a third party (not your employer) is partially or wholly responsible for your workplace injury, your attorney can help you pursue a personal injury claim against that party in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits.

Partnering with our workers’ compensation attorney in North Carolina can be particularly beneficial when dealing with complex claims, disputes, or denied claims. We can provide invaluable guidance and legal expertise to help you secure the benefits you are entitled to under the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act.
