About the law firm

Experienced Attorneys For
Injured Workers in Charlotte, NC

The workers’ compensation system and employers are not always fair. That is why you often need a strategy and an advocate to carry out that strategy. Since 1999, The Bollinger Law Firm has advocated for people in North Carolina who have been injured on the job. We can help you navigate this process and get medical bills and lost wages paid.

Before becoming an attorney, Bob Bollinger worked many jobs that were physically demanding, including stock boy at a dime store, carpet cushion cutter at a foam rubber factory and furniture factory worker. At those jobs, he saw people get hurt.

Bob explains, “Management often treated employees like they were expendable. People would get hurt and they would get treated unfairly. All of this developed a desire in me to help people who get hurt at work. They often get taken advantage of by managers and insurance adjusters. I advocate for these injured workers. I level the playing field against the managers and insurance companies who are taking advantage of them.”

How Do Our Fees Work?

At The Bollinger Law Firm, PC, we charge a 25% contingent fee on workers’ compensation cases. Simply put, a contingent fee means that if our team reaches a favorable outcome for your workers’ compensation case, we receive 25% of whatever the outcome may be. In these situations, a favorable outcome is when we settle the case for you, or when we go to court and win benefits for you.

The team at The Bollinger Law Firm, PC, believes in fighting for our clients first, which is why we don’t take extensive fees. Our 25% contingent fee is clearly stated in our fee agreement, which is less than a 33% or one-third fee that you might see in another lawyer’s contract. Our experienced attorneys and shared legal knowledge allow our firm to offer some of the best workers’ compensation case services in the state of North Carolina. Get the outcome you deserve with our attorneys at The Bollinger Law Firm, PC.

we’re ready to help you

Being injured at work raises many questions. Here are some of the workers’ compensation
questions we are asked frequently:

  • 1. How long do I have to file a claim after I’m injured?

    You have two years to file the claim with the Industrial Commission, under most circumstances. You are required to report the accident to your employer in writing within 30 days. If you have an occupational disease, file as soon as the doctor tells you about it. When we represent an injured employee, we file the claim with the Industrial Commission so that you do not have to worry about the two-year limit.

  • 2. How much will it cost for me to hire a lawyer?

    Most experienced workers’ compensation lawyers charge a 25 percent contingent-fee on the benefits obtained for you through the Industrial Commission procedures. This means that if we get your weekly checks started for you, we would be entitled to request a fee of one-fourth of the weekly check amounts. Or, if we settle your case for $10,000.00 we would be entitled to request a fee of one fourth of that amount, or $2,500.00. The expenses of pursuing your case are in addition to the 25 percent fee. Legal fees must be approved by the North Carolina Industrial Commission, so lawyers tend to charge about the same amounts all across the state. If you are going to pay the same amount for an experienced lawyer as you will for an inexperienced lawyer, you should choose a more experienced workers’ compensation attorney with whom you are comfortable.

  • 3. How do I go about hiring a lawyer?

    First you should look for an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. At The Bollinger Law Firm, PC, we handle at least 100 workers’ compensation cases a year, representing only the injured employees. Bob Bollinger is a Board-Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law. Mr. Bollinger’s workers’ compensation trial experience can be reviewed on the Industrial Commission website, where the decisions in more than 90 cases he has tried are posted.

  • 4. Choose An Attorney Who Will Be On Your Side

    There are a number of fine workers’ compensation lawyers in North Carolina, and you should tell any lawyer that you are thinking about hiring based on how much experience he or she has with North Carolina workers’ compensation cases. Beyond that, you should try to hire a lawyer who has time to talk with you about your case initially and with whom you are comfortable discussing medical issues, your income and your hopes for the future.

    Just call us at 704-859-8203. We proudly offer free consultations where you can determine if our firm is right for you.
