Industrial accidents are a serious risk for construction workers who face potential injury on the job practically every day. An injured worker could suffer problems in the aftermath that lead to serious medical expenses and significant rehabilitation treatment, not to mention pain and suffering. A traumatic brain, neck or back injury, paralysis, broken bones and concussions are all possible outcomes.
The possibility of involvement in a work accident increases when a negligent employer is involved.
It is not easy at times to receive the compensation to which you are arguably entitled after an employment-related injury has occurred. It can be a challenge to prove that an injury or illness was suffered on the job, and benefits could be denied if an employee fails to comply with the proper protocol in reporting the accident and seeking care.
At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler we work with our clients in Charlotte, Mecklenburg and elsewhere in North Carolina to defend their rights and to ensure that after sustaining injuries they are not victimized again by the workers' compensation system. Insurance companies will often try to minimize compensation to injured workers, but we understand how to fight for you or your loved one.
Our attorneys, who possess years of practical experience handling workers' compensation claims from filing to completion, will take on your workers’ compensation case and diligently represent your interests to see that you receive the maximum benefits that you are entitled to. Our workers' compensation webpage contains more information on how we can assist, and how to contact us for a free initial consultation.
