North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Law Requires Employers to Pay Wage Replacement and Medical Benefits in the Event of a Job Related Injury Or Illness.
If you've been injured on the job or have sustained an occupational illness, North Carolina's Workers’ Compensation laws protect you and entitle you to specific benefits. These benefits may include medical expenses, compensation while you're incapacitated, rehabilitation or physical therapy or permanent or partial disability benefits. If you're suffering from a chronic illness, acute injury or any number of other job-related health problems, The Law Office of Michael Jacula can help you get the maximum Workers’ Compensation benefits allowed by law.
Typical injuries or illnesses that fall under Workers’ Compensation include:
I Will Fight to Obtain All of the Benefits You Are Entitled To Under the Workers’ Compensation Statute.
- Traumatic physical injuries
- Repetitive, activity-related physical injuries
- Some mental health injuries
- Occupational diseases
I've represented numerous injured workers in Wake Forest, Raleigh, Youngsville, Franklinton and the surrounding area. I have successfully litigated numerous cases, including appeals, in order to obtain compensation and medical benefits my clients were entitled to. Generally speaking, damages for pain and suffering and damages for employer fault are not available under Workers’ Compensation law. Employer or employee negligence is usually not an issue. However, an accidental injury or occupational disease sustained during the course of employment does give rise to the right to receive certain, specific benefits, including wage replacement and medical expenses. If there is a permanent loss of function of any body part, the compensation can be substantial. If your condition results in permanent disability, you may be qualified to receive lifetime compensation.
Establishing Workers’ Compensation Eligibility.
I carefully review the facts and circumstances surrounding every client's injury or illness and determine what kind of Workers’ Compensation they are entitled to and assist them in fining the appropriate documents needed to receive fair compensation. If you have been turned down for Workers’ Compensation benefits, contact my office. I've filed appeals for many clients, winning compensation and benefits in line with the severity or limitation of their injuries or illness. I will gladly review your own claim to see if it has merit, even if you've already been turned down for compensation.
Don't Pay For Legal Fees Unless We Win
I understand that any time you've been sidelined by injuries or illness; you worry about providing for your family. That's why your initial consultation is always free of charge and my attorney’s fee is always on a contingent basis - that means my fee is payable only if there is a favorable result. However many factors can influence the amount of your settlement, including the severity of your injuries and the amount of your average pay prior to injury.
