As the victim of a workplace accident in North Carolina, you want to know that you will be taken care of. You want to know that the workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled will provide sufficient coverage for your needs.
This is particularly important when considering your medical expenses. Treating a workplace injury isn't cheap, and the prospect of paying for a major injury is essentially impossible for many people. This is precisely why workers’ compensation exists.
Under North Carolina's workers' compensation law, your benefits provide you with full coverage for medical expenses arising from your accident. This includes:
- Hospital visits
- Doctor's treatments
- Prescription drugs
Benefits may also include compensation for travel expenses incurred while getting to and from your medical appointments. During your free workers’ comp consultation at our Raleigh office, we can help you better understand these and all other benefits offered by this no-fault insurance program.
The duration of your workers’ compensation benefits depends on a number of factors. In the case of a permanent disability, you can receive benefits to cover your medical expenses for the rest of your life. Our attorneys will review your case and provide you with some advice as to how long you can expect to receive benefits for your expenses.
We know how important these benefits are for you and your family’s security. We will fight any attempt to prevent you from receiving the full benefits to which you are entitled.
