North Carolinians who have been injured on the job need the help of the Charlotte workers’ compensation lawyers at the law firm of DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A. Claims of compensation for injuries that are purely the responsibility of an employer are considered to be workers’ comp matters. However, injuries that happened as a result of negligence by a third party may offer additional avenues for compensation.
The attorneys at our North Carolina work site injury law firm represent injured workers in cases involving any work-related injury or condition, including:
We also represent family members who have lost a loved one due to an accidental death on the job. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for this loss. However, we can help ease the financial stress of a difficult time.
People often ask: Am I entitled to additional compensation? The answer depends on the unique circumstances of each case. Sometimes, manufacturers of defective equipment or unreasonably hazardous materials, negligent delivery vehicle drivers, and others whose roles fall outside the scope of the employer’s responsibility may be liable in personal injury claims for the same work-related injury that is the subject of a workers’ comp claim.
Our legal team is known for helping injured people — both through personal injury law and by focusing on workers’ comp claims. We can help with your initial workers’ comp claim and represent you at every step, from mediation and settlements to hearings before the NC Industrial Commission. We also handle workers’ compensation appeals, all the way up to the Supreme Court, if necessary.
Attorney Bill Acton is board certified as a specialist in workers’ compensation by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. His extensive training and experience allows him to guide injured employees with the assurance that they will be properly represented in their claim for workers’ comp benefits following an on-the-job injury or work-related illness. These can range from industrial and construction site injuries to carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries.
If your employer or the workers’ comp insurance company is denying your claim, we will fight to help you recover all of the benefits you are entitled to. At the same time, if your injury was caused by another party, other than your employer, our attorneys can help you pursue financial justice through a personal injury lawsuit.
If you have been injured in a workplace accident, we can help you pursue all of the financial compensation you are entitled to. Contact our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys online or call 866-953-8974 for a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
