Have You Been Injured At Work? We Can Help.
When you head off to work for the day, the assumption is you will be returning home in the same condition you left in. However, what happens if you are injured at work or develop health conditions because of work conditions? You may be able to file for workers’ compensation, and the Law Office of Leslie O. Wickham, Jr., can walk you through this process.
North Carolina law requires an employer to have workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage helps employees who have a workplace-related injury recoup lost wages or pay for medical bills.
You might have sustained a workplace injury if you were hurt while doing something through the course of employment or on behalf of your employer. Often, these injuries happen while in the workplace, but they can also occur in other locations. It could still be a workplace injury if you, as an employee, were doing something connected to your job. Our firm can help you determine if the circumstances surrounding your injury classify it as a workplace injury.
What Are Common Workplace Injuries?
Workplace injuries can be wide-ranging, and we can examine your case to see if it fits the criteria for a workers’ compensation case. Common injuries can include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Cuts or lacerations
- Neck or back strains
- Repetitive use injuries: carpal tunnel syndrome is an example
- Injuries sustained from falling objects
These injuries can mean lost work time or even loss of ability to work. We will fight for fair compensation for your injuries to minimize the impact they may have on your life.
If your employer’s insurance policy denies your claim, you are able to request a hearing, which our firm can assist you with. We will present information and evidence in support of your claim. This can include testimony from physicians as to the severity of the injury and coworkers who can prove an accident caused your injury.
