As quickly as possible.
If that seems like a simple answer, that's because it is. Under North Carolina's workers' compensation system, most claims need to be filed within 30 days of suffering your injury. But filing a workers' comp claim isn't like cramming the night before a big test.
The paperwork involved is complicated, and issues can always arise. You don't want to wait until the last minute, as that puts you in danger of being victimized by some unlikely and unforeseen event.
At White & Stradley, PLLC, we urge the victims of workplace accidents to move as quickly as possible when filing a workers' comp claim. That same advice applies when hiring a workers' comp attorney- don't wait. Speak to our lawyers as soon as you can.
Workers' comp law can be confusing, the bureaucracy byzantine, the process frustrating. The sooner you start your claim, the sooner you begin the process of pursuing the benefits to which you are entitled.
If you live anywhere in the state of North Carolina and you have questions about workers' comp and how our firm can help, please call White & Stradley, PLLC today at 1-919-863-9397 for a free consultation.
