Workers' Compensation Claims
Helping Injured Workers Throughout North Carolina
In North Carolina, if you are hurt on the job, you may be entitled to Workers Compensation benefits. You may be entitled to have your medical bills paid, your medical treatment provided for and payment for past lost wages, future lost wages and permanent injuries. Of course, the employer and the Workers Compensation insurance company may have some input in this treatment. Sometimes, there can be disagreements as to what your injuries are and what treatments are reasonable. It can be hard doing this alone, and you should get help. Remember, you are not dealing with your employer, you are now dealing with insurance companies. They may not see the case the same way that you do. Call a Greensboro personal injury lawyer at Roane Law, and we can help you through it.

Skilled Attorney Representing Injured Workers
Another part of Workers' Comp cases is the possibility of a third party claim. Essentially, this means that there may be other potential defendants that need to be included. Some Workers Comp law firms do not handle third party claims and do not know how to spot this issues. At Roane Law, we will handle both of these claims to make sure you maximize your recovery. In our last trial, we had Workers Compensation benefits paid of $146,000 but the defendants offered only $1,500 on the third party claim. James Roane had to fight the case for over a year. Finally, the case went to trial and the jury returned a verdict of $300,000. Even after the verdict one of the insurance companies tried to get out of their payment. If you have a third party claim, make sure that you hire a lawyer who knows how to handle it.
