For most workers in North Carolina who suffer an injury by accident on the job, the workers’ compensation system is your only recourse to achieve important benefits like medical care/expenses, lost wages, and damages for permanent disability. Although this system is supposed to return an injured worker to their pre-injury condition (or at the very least, as close as possible to their pre-injury condition), in many cases this result cannot be achieved without the assistance of an experienced attorney. If you have been injured on the job and have questions or concerns about your rights under the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, please contact Carr, Blackwell & Associates, P.C., to set up a free consultation with Chris Reed or James Marshall.
