How to Get Workers Comp Help

Injuries and illnesses that stem from the tasks you perform at work every day can have a devastating physical and psychological impact on your life and prevent you from being able to provide for yourself and your family financially.

When you’re still going through treatment, you shouldn’t have to worry about money troubles. You can get help with your workers comp claims and appeals by reaching out to an experienced North Carolina workman’s compensation attorney. Continue reading to learn more about why you’ll want a lawyer on your side and everything you need to know about the appeals process.

Why You’ll Want a Qualified Attorney Representing You

While it is not a legal requirement that you obtain an attorney to represent your workers comp case, choosing to work with one can expedite the time that it will take to get your claim approved. Your workers comp lawyer will ensure that every deadline is met so that the statute of limitations does not expire in your case.

Furthermore, it is quite likely that your claim for benefits will be denied, as the majority of claims are. With that being said, your lawyer will have years of experience in handling North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) appeals. This means that you’ll be able to spend your time recuperating while your lawyer builds a powerful appeal.

What You Need to Know about Pursuing an Appeal

If you find out that your claim has been denied, your attorney will start by renegotiating the terms of your settlement with the insurance company. It’s possible that you made an error somewhere in your claim or didn’t provide adequate medical documentation of your injuries.

Should your denial be upheld, your lawyer will file an appeal with the NCIC and you’ll be given a hearing where we’ll have the opportunity to present your case before the commissioner. Since most appeals are resolved at this level of appeals, you may be able to avoid pursuing your appeal in court.
