When is it time to Hire a Workers' Compensation Lawyer, and Why is it Important to Have One?

After your workplace injury, there are a lot of forces that will array and try to convince you not to hire a workers’ comp attorney who understands North Carolina’s claim system. Your employer will probably promise that they will take care of you and explain that the process is simple. Insurance companies might ask you to sign a release or settlement immediately.

It’s certainly tempting. After all, you just want to move past the accident and get the money you’re entitled to under state law. However, the reality is that doing so is much easier and much more likely if you have White & Stradley, PLLC’s workers’ comp claim attorneys on your side.
