If you have suffered an injury at your workplace, it is imperative to file for workers’ compensation benefits in order to have your employer cover your medical expenses and any loss of income. All forms of workers’ compensation can be found on the North Carolina Industrial Commission’s website.
However, it is recommended that you seek legal assistance from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney due to the complexities of the legal system. With more than 50 years of combined experience, our legal team at Hyland + Padilla, PLLC has an extensive knowledge of North Carolina workers’ compensation laws to guide you through the intricacies of the legal system.
The purpose of filing all of the necessary forms adequately and in a timely fashion is to shorten the processing time. Since the Industrial Commission utilizes a form-based practice, it standardizes many of the proceedings involved in notices of the claim, continuation of medical care beyond the claim’s statutes, and disputes over the claim.
If forms are not filed properly, of if employees do not follow the rules, they can suffer serious consequences that could have a negative impact on their case. Fortunately, our Durham workers’ compensation lawyers are ready to help.
Whether your employer is uncooperative or if your claim is initially denied, Hyland + Padilla, PLLC is ready to fight for you while you make a successful recovery. We understand what it takes to ensure that your claim is processed as quickly as possible.
