Do You Need Help After Your Catastrophic Injury? Legal Help is Only a Phone Call Away
Brain injuries are among the most devastating and life altering injuries a person can endure. In addition to changing a victim's memory and personality traits, they can also significantly affect a person's ability to work or care for themselves. If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury due to a work related accident, workers' compensation insurance may be responsible for covering expenses beyond just basic medical care and lost wages. For instance, the injured person may need long-term attendant care.
At The Bollinger Law Firm, P.C., in Charlotte, North Carolina, we provide the dedicated advocacy you need after your devastating accident. In our years of practice, we have come to realize that workers' compensation insurers frequently offer the bare minimum for brain injury claims. We find this unacceptable. We will explain your rights, outline your options and fight for all that you deserve.
Workers' Compensation and Brain Injuries
Sadly, many people who suffer serious brain injuries due to on-the-job accidents are unable to return to their former employment. Their injuries are just too severe, affecting every aspect of their lives. While workers' compensation insurers must pay for medical bills and provide compensation for lost wages, they will often avoid extending further benefits to victims of brain injuries.
In North Carolina, workers' compensation insurers are required to provide care attendants for those unable to care for themselves after a debilitating work related accident. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous insurers will not share this information willingly. They more interested in protecting their bottom line by offering victims of brain injuries and other serious impairments the smallest amount of compensation possible.
