The dependable, aggressive Workers’ Compensation Lawyers at White & Stradley, PLLC in Winston Salem, North Carolina have been helping people that are injured at work from all over the state get the benefits they need and deserve following an on-the-job accident or injury.
We will fight hard to get you the compensation you need and deserve during this difficult time. Some of the workplace injuries we have seen in our practice are:
- Burn injuries

- Neck injuries
- Shoulder and limb injuries
- Electric shock
- Loss of limb
- Nerve injury
Losing an arm or a leg is a loss like no other. Even though you still feel like yourself emotionally and cognitively, you can’t help but feel incomplete. You were once a hard-working able man or woman, and now you probably feel dependent on others to perform simple everyday tasks that you once performed with ease. We have represented folks from North Carolina just like you, and we have helped them get the maximum Workers’ Compensation benefits possible. We can help you, too.
Under the Workers' Compensation law, each limb or finger is assigned a certain degree of value. If the injury you suffered while working results in loss of use of the affected limb, an award is paid based upon the degree value for that limb or digit. However, if the injury results in a loss by separation (amputation), that award is doubled. This may sound simple or even harsh, but often times, insurance adjusters miscalculate an impairment award, which if not caught, would cost you, the injured Worker, thousands of dollars.
At our law firm, White & Stradley, PLLC, we make sure your award is figured correctly. We ensure your award includes the cost of counseling, which many injured Workers need after such a devastating and traumatic injury. We determine whether your award includes the cost of a prosthetic device and its periodic replacement. And we make sure your injury was assigned the correct impairment rating. We will work hard to get you the maximum compensation allowed by law for your amputation injury.
