Hand Injuries in the Workplace

Serving all of North Carolina; Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro, Wilmington, Durham, and Winston-Salem

I fell on the job because of a chemical spill and injured my arm, hands and wrists. I tried to work with the insurance company and could never get answers or return phone calls. When I finally began receiving benefits, they were not the right amount. I hired Nancy White and she immediately took the stress out of processing my claim. Nancy and her staff dealt with the insurance company and I was able to focus on getting better. Quote
