Steps to Take After Suffering a Workplace Injury

North Carolina law requires injured workers to report their accident or occupational disease in writing to their employers within 30 days of the accident. However, even if you did not report the problem to your employer, it may still be possible to prevail on a workers' compensation claim. That's why getting help from our experienced Charlotte work injury lawyers is so important to getting the compensation you deserve.

We Help Protect the Interests of Injured Workers

When you have been injured on the job, your first instinct may be to turn to your human resources department for help. While your accident should be reported to HR, remember that they work for your employer too. They may not have your best interests in mind when it comes to getting full and fair compensation. Similarly, insurance companies do not make money by giving it away. They may offer you a settlement that does not take into account the full extent of your injuries.

At Downer, Walters & Mitchener, P.A., our lawyers are committed to serving your best interests. We will fight to help you get fairly compensated for all of your present and future medical expenses, as well as lost wages and other expenses. We know how employers and insurance companies operate. Let "Your Hometown Legal Team" handle negotiations on your behalf.
