Discontinued Workman’s Compensation Checks
When you’ve been injured at work, it’s a huge relief the moment your first workmans’ comp check arrives. But it could be a huge shock if the amount is much lower than you expected. You might be asking “Why is this amount so low?” “How is this amount determined?” “I think there’s a mistake; is there anything I can do?”
In North Carolina there are several different ways in which a workers’ comp check’s amount is calculated. It depends on many factors including your prior work history with your employer.
When you sustain a work injury, your workman’s comp check becomes your lifeline as it needs to cover any expense you might have while you are out of work. So it’s important to make sure that the amount of your workers’ comp check can cover the costs of your day-to-day life.
If you believe you are not receiving the correct amount, take action to have your workers’ compensation check amount corrected. We recommend calling an attorney for a free consultation in order to confirm that you are receiving the correct amount. If your attorney determines the amount to be too low, then you can discuss what actions can be taken to correct this problem, so you can focus on your recovery.
