Fighting For Your Right To Workers’ Compensation
If you have been recently injured at work, this may be the first time you have had to deal with North Carolina’s complex workers’ compensation system. The insurance companies that provide this coverage can take advantage of your inexperience. Many people who have valid injury claims do not receive all of the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve because they did not know the rules.

At the Knox Law Center, we provide a free initial consultation to explain your rights under North Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws. With offices in Charlotte and Denver, we represent injured workers throughout the state.
Workers’ compensation provides benefits for medical expenses, wage replacement and permanent disability. While the insurance companies that provide this coverage may voluntarily pay benefits initially, they can stop payments at any time. Our lawyers often represent workers when the insurance company has denied their claim or stopped their benefits.
Under our contingency fee arrangement, we will not charge you unless we help you obtain workers’ comp benefits.

Is Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Also A Personal Injury Case?
North Carolina workers’ compensation laws shield employers from personal injury lawsuits for on-the-job injuries. However, if your injuries were caused by a third party such as a subcontractor, a vendor or anyone else who is not your employer or co-worker, you may be entitled to recover additional damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Third-party personal injury claims are common in construction accidents and in car accidents that occur on the job.
