At the law firm of Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler, we focus a large part of our practice on helping injured workers from Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and the surrounding areas in southwestern North Carolina. We help these injured workers by providing guidance and support as they pursue the workers’ compensation they need in the aftermath of workplace accidents. In addition, we also provide answers to our clients’ most common compensation-related questions.
The first question prospective clients normally ask us is “Am I eligible for workers’ compensation?” If you were injured while on the job, it is likely that you are eligible for compensation. After all, the purpose of workers’ compensation is to ensure injured employees remain financially stable while they recover from work-related injuries.
The second question clients usually ask is “What does workers’ compensation cover?” Workers’ compensation is designed to cover medical expenses stemming from on-the-job injuries and lost income resulting from workplace accidents. In addition, workers’ compensation death benefits are available to immediate family members of workers who died in workplace accidents. Death benefits provide compensation for funeral and burial expenses and a portion of the workers’ lost wages.
