How Can Workers Get Financial Relief After An Injury?
If you are injured on the job, it’s important to select the right law firm to protect your interests. When an injury occurs in a work setting, the law that applies to your case can be very complex and involve more than one area.
At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, North Carolina, our lawyers practice in three main areas of law: workers’ compensation, personal injury and Social Security Disability. All three areas may come to bear on a single on-the-job injury case:
- Workers’ compensation: If your injury is job-related, you are entitled to benefits from our state’s workers’ compensation system regardless of who was at fault. Depending on the circumstances, this may be your only source of recovery for medical bills, lost wages and permanent injury.
- Personal injury: If the injury was caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer or a co-worker, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused your injury. This is known as a third-party claim. Examples of third parties include other drivers in car accidents, equipment manufacturers and vendors working on your job site.
- Social Security Disability: If your disability continues for at least one year and you are unable to return to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability.
When you may be eligible for compensation from more than one source, it is important to coordinate your claims so you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. Our lawyers will work together to ensure that happens.
