Workers’ Compensation

When You Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Nobody wants to be injured at work.  The pain and stress of the injury are made worse by red tape and problems with medical treatment.  When you are hurt at work and your injury is serious, you need a workers’ comp attorney who knows the law.  Whether you need a workers’ comp injury attorney or an occupational disease lawyer, your workers’ compensation case can’t wait:  you need medical treatment and compensation.  You need a workers’ compensation lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to help you with North Carolina workers’ compensation law.

We have two board-certified NC workers’ compensation attorneysValerie Johnson and Leto Copeley – who know the law.   And Valerie Johnson’s book on NC workers’ compensation law is the one lawyers turn to.  Your questions about your case are questions that we have answered before.  We can push for medical treatment and help you get your weekly benefits.  We can tell you when your workers’ comp settlement is reasonable, and when it isn’t.  Our experience in court means that we will go to bat for you – and if it takes going to a hearing to do that, we won’t hesitate.

Not all workers’ compensation cases involve injuries.  Some claims are for occupational diseases, conditions that were caused by work.  You need an experienced occupational disease lawyer – we often fight for compensation for clients whose conditions were caused by their jobs.  We know what to prove and how to prove it.

Not everyone with a workers’ comp injury needs a workers’ comp lawyer.  We have a free book to answer your questions and help you get back what you lost.  Call us if you need to know whether a workers’ compensation attorney can help you with your claim.
