Under North Carolina's workers' compensation law, you do have a right to be represented by an attorney throughout your claim process. It is an excellent idea to hire an experienced workers' comp lawyer. We can help you navigate the difficult process.
White & Stradley, PLLC's workers' compensation lawyers have decades of experience helping workers in Morganton and throughout the state pursue benefits.
However, while you have the right to hire a lawyer, you are not entitled to an attorney. Criminal defendants are provided with an attorney if they are unable to afford one. This is not the case in a workers' comp case. The state of North Carolina will not provide you with a lawyer to help with your case.
But it is not a good idea to try and make it on your own. Having our workers' comp lawyer on your side greatly increases your chances of winning the benefits you are entitled to as a victim of a workplace accident.
We understand you likely have questions about the process and the logistics of bringing an attorney on-board. We're happy to address all of your concerns at a free initial consultation.
If you live in Morganton or any other North Carolina community and you need an experienced workers' compensation lawyer, please call White & Stradley, PLLC today at 1-919-863-9397 for a free consultation.
