We can help determine if injury is work-related or not


Getting hurt on the job is a worry in and of itself-add to it the stress of medical bills and determining if the injury was sustained in the course of employment or not, and North Carolina employees may end up feeling overwhelmed. However, they may not be aware that lawyers at our law firm can help alleviate their stress by guiding them through the legal process.

Workplace diseases can result from a number of causes


Although training and safety protocols should prevent them, workplace injuries can still be a problem for some employees in the metropolitan Charlotte area. From minor bumps and cuts to major injuries that require surgery and other therapeutic treatments, workplace injuries cost companies and their employees both time and money. Another issue, however, can also force workers to stay away from their jobs and recover from employment-related harm.

When is my injury covered by workers' compensation?


Since working takes up such a large portion of North Carolina workers' days, they may end up forming friendships with the people with whom they work and engage in conversations or horse around with each other on the job. This can be expected-no one works all day without fooling around a little with one's colleagues. Most of the time, the horseplay and joking around is harmless, but it is possible that an employee could get hurt during the course of this type of incident. Are these injuries covered by workers' compensation, as they were sustained while in the workplace, but maybe not strictly while working?
