Workers' Compensation

Why should you have to pay an attorney’s fee when the insurance company has wrongly denied your claim?

That’s a fair question. The short answer is the “but for” answer… you wouldn’t get anything but for the work that your attorney did for you. The long answer is that we may be able to convince the Industrial Commission to sanction your employer or their insurance company for a frivolous denial and have our fees shifted over to the other side. We are pretty aggressive about pursuing these under a provision in the law that penalizes a party for “stubborn, unfounded, litigiousness.” But with the new laws implemented by Gov. McCrory, we’ve seen a decline in these being awarded. This may be a temporary phase. And we’re still filing those claims when we think the defendants are being ridiculous.
