At White & Stradley, PLLC we understand that your work injury won't always be suffered on a traditional work site in Durham. Workers' compensation is often thought of as a system for employees who suffered injuries while working in an office or construction site, but North Carolina's workers' comp law allows you to file a claim if you were hurt while working off-site.
The workers' compensation system can be tricky, and it's especially complicated if your injury wasn't suffered in the traditional workplace setting. That's why it's so important to hire one of our experienced Durham workers' compensation lawyers to help navigate the system.
As a general rule, you will be able to file a claim if your injury was sustained while you were performing your job duties. This includes job duties performed while traveling on business or otherwise away from the office.
You can contact one of our Durham workers’ compensation lawyers for a free consultation to determine if your off-site injury is covered by workers' comp. We'll evaluate your potential claim and advise you on the best path forward.
More and more people are traveling for business and doing dangerous work off-site. We believe you should be protected by the system.
