Workers' Compensation In North Carolina

The Workers' Compensation system provides benefits to people who are injured at work, regardless of who caused the injury. You do not even need to be on the job site to receive benefits; salespeople, delivery truck drivers and others who travel on behalf of their employers are eligible if they are injured while working. Benefits are also available to people with occupational illnesses. Almost all workers in North Carolina are covered by the law.

At our Greenville law firm, Cannon Law Offices, PLLC, we have been helping people with Workers' Compensation claims since 1983. We get involved at all stages of the process, from initial claim through mediation and appeal. We also help people obtain benefits for a work-related disability or illness that will temporarily keep them from working. Our clients have been able to obtain compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other expenses arising from the injury.

How We Help People Like You

Our firm will help you complete the paperwork and obtain all necessary medical and employment records. Our attorney attends all hearings and appeals on your behalf. We make sure that you understand how the process works and know the status of your claim at all times.

It is sometimes difficult to obtain benefits after a work-related injury. Employers and their insurance companies try to minimize their expenses, and often deny or reduce legitimate claims in the hope that the employee will not pursue the matter. If your initial claim was denied, let us use our more than 31 years of experience to help you appeal.
