Getting To the Truth and Getting Your Compensation Benefits Started
Attorney Martha Ramsay has been fighting for injured workers in North Carolina for over 15 years. When you come into our Charlotte offices or speak with her over the phone, in most cases she will be able to quickly assess your situation and let you know what the problem is, if it can be fixed, and how long it will take to get your benefit checks flowing.
One of the first steps we can take is to find out for sure if your employer has filed a workers’ compensation claim. In some cases we have discovered that employers have lied about filing a claim or violated the law by not maintaining the required insurance. The sooner we know the truth, the sooner we can take action on your behalf.
Assuming that the insurance is in order and the workers’ compensation claim has been filed, there are several things that can hold up your checks or reduce the amount you receive. We will examine your case closely to look for common problems, such as:
- Did the correct doctor write you out of work?
- Were your prior earnings calculated accurately?
- Did the company doctor issue a light duty work note, but the company failed to provide a light duty position?
- Did the insurance adjuster say it wasn’t an accident, leading to a potentially denied claim?
