Handling Workers' Compensation Claims From Start To Finish

Find Out How We Can Help You

Under North Carolina law, all businesses with three or more employees are required to provide workers' compensation coverage. Even if your employer does provide workers' compensation, however, there is no guarantee that you will get all the benefits you are entitled to receive. Your employer and its insurer may deny or dispute your claim. After seeking medical treatment and reporting your injury to your employer, your next step should be to contact a lawyer.

At Miller Law Firm, PLLC, we provide tough, skilled representation in workers' compensation claims. Our Raleigh-based law firm is prepared to go the extra mile to help you through this difficult time.

What Types Of Workers' Compensation Benefits Are Available To Me?

If you were injured at work, you may be eligible to receive the following benefits:

  • Two-thirds of your average weekly wage during the previous year, up to certain legal limits
  • Your medical expenses

In addition, if you are the spouse or child of someone who was killed in a workplace accident, you are eligible for death benefits. Our law firm can handle an entire workers' compensation case, beginning with the initial claim and continuing through appeals and administrative hearings as needed.

Bringing Third-Party Claims In Addition To Workers' Compensation Claims

While workers' compensation benefits can be a necessary lifeline for individuals and families, the fact is these benefits do not cover all the damages from your injury. You are entitled only to a percentage of your wages in a workers' compensation claim, and you cannot recover benefits for pain and suffering.

If someone other than your employer shares fault for your injury, such as a subcontractor on a construction site, a vendor or someone else, you can bring a personal injury claim against this third party. Attorney Stacy Miller has more than 20 years of legal experience in personal injury litigation and can help you understand your options and fight for all available damages.
