If you are injured while on the job, you may be entitled to compensation under the North Carolina Workers' Compensation Act. The Workers' Compensation Act provides for lost wages, payment of medical bills, and compensation for permanent physical impairment. Workers' compensation claims are administered by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Knowing the correct steps to take, forms to file, and relevant facts and procedures can make a significant difference in whether you receive compensation and in the amount you are paid. Insurance companies and their teams of defense lawyers work against you with one goal in mind—to save the insurance companies money. Having the advice of an attorney is essential to navigate the workers' compensation process. Arreola Law Office will work to ensure that you get as much compensation as you are eligible to receive. You only pay if we obtain compensation for you.
There are many factors that affect your potential workers' compensation benefits. These may include the nature of your job, your income level, the specific body part(s) injured, your medical treatment, and impairment ratings you may receive. By filing a workers' compensation claim, you may be able to recover past and future lost wages, as well as payment for medical bills and medical treatment. Even if the workplace accident is your fault, you may still be able to receive benefits. It is in your best interest to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side.
