What Is Workers’ Comp?
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system of social legislation designed to protect employees. It is designed to provide compensation for disability and to cover any injury-related medical care.
Each state has its own special legislation with its own rules and regulations, and, especially, its own ways of interpreting each aspect of the case. What qualifies as an accident, what qualifies as “in the course of employment,” what qualifies as “job-related,” and so on – they all differ between North Carolina and South Carolina.
The confusion that results from such ambiguous language makes for a potential minefield, a minefield that the adjusters try to take advantage of whenever possible. It takes a very experienced attorney to fight back successfully and to help a client get their fair compensation. And yes, that’s exactly why you need the information in the book and the report we will send you just for the asking.
Do I Qualify?
If you have been injured at work or during a work-related activity and your injuries were due to an accident, you are entitled to compensation.
