As a hardworking employee, you may think you should struggle through an injury on the job rather than going through the process of reporting a claim. It is easy to feel that your body may recover over time but this can be dangerous choice. Serious workplace injuries can require long recovery times with months of physical therapy. More damage can easily result to the injury and surrounding parts of the body the longer you wait.
Even if the idea of going through the legal paperwork feels overwhelming, starting the process is a simple step toward recovery. At White & Stradley, PLLC, we are hard working Workers’ Compensation attorneys. We understand what you are going through so we will help you through each step with grace and dignity.
Personal Injury claims for Pain & Suffering:
If your injury is not a direct result of your workplace environment but from third party involvement (such as faulty equipment from a manufacturer) you may consider filing a personal injury claim. Personal injury claims in North Carolina can result in compensation for pain and suffering. Sometimes they are filed together with a Workers’ Compensation claim should your employer also be at fault.
We can help you determine whether you are eligible for compensation from pain and suffering. Our client testimonials speak for themselves. You need somebody on your side to deal with corporations, insurance companies and the legal paperwork. We sympathize with the fact that you are also recovering from injury at the same time.

- Workers’ Compensation does not include a claim for pain and suffering
