Secrets the Insurance Company Doesn't Want You To Know

When it comes to workers' compensation claims, what you don't know could cost you. Workers’ Compensation laws in North and South Carolina vary and it is important that you speak to one of our workers’ compensation lawyers that practice in your particular state. Here are seven things you should know regarding your rights under workers' compensation law:

  • 1 In North Carolina, you have the right to seek a second opinion medical examination even if your claim was denied.
  • 2 You could be eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits even if you are the one who caused your injury.
  • 3 In North Carolina, the workers' compensation insurance company may have as little as 30 days to make a decision once you have properly filed your claim.
  • 4 You may be able to receive compensation for medical prescriptions, mileage, and other travel expenses.
  • 5 You might be eligible to receive benefits for a particular injury even if you had a previous injury in that same area.
  • 6 Workers' compensation insurance companies cannot require pre-authorization for some types of care.
  • 7 You may be owed workers' compensation for scarring and permanent injuries.

What's Covered by Workers' Compensation?

If you suffered an injury, illness, disease, or death while on the job, you have the right to file a workers' compensation claim to seek medical and monetary benefits for workers’ compensation benefits. However, not all conditions are covered under workers’ compensation.

Medical expenses, lost wages, retraining, and vocational rehabilitation may be covered under workers' compensation. In North Carolina, usually, your award for lost earnings will equal about two-thirds of your gross income, which is averaged from a period before the date of injury. South Carolina’s compensation for is based on either the degree of impairment of your injured body part, the amount of wages that you are able to earn after your accident, or whether you are unable to ever work again as a result of your injuries. Additionally, an injured worker or surviving family member can potentially sue a third party whose negligence contributed directly to an injury or wrongful death. This could be a person, company, or manufacturer, other than your employer, that caused your work accident.

Why You Need a Workers' Compensation Attorney

Although workers' compensation claims generally do not require court hearings, this doesn't mean that you don't need sound legal advice regarding your rights. If, however, the injury is severe or there is a dispute about your claim or the amount of money you are owed, you will need a workers' compensation lawyer to protect your rights. While we try to help you avoid unnecessary controversy, sometimes we will need to represent you in hearings before an Administrative Law Judge and further to the Appellate Courts.
