In Need of a Law Enforcement Injury Lawyers in Charlotte, NC?
Our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys at the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., have represented injured workers for over 25 years — including law enforcement officers who bravely protect North Carolina residents and businesses with a selflessness that is rarely required in other professions.
Police work, even something as simple as an everyday traffic stop, investigations, and arrests can quickly escalate into physical confrontations that result in devastating injuries that take weeks, months, or even years to fully recover — when a full recovery is possible.
When law enforcement officers are hurt in the line of duty, it becomes our duty to help these brave men and women pursue the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to, as outlined by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act and other profession-specific coverages that are available.
