- How should I respond when the insurance company wants to take my recorded statement? The insurance company is probably thinking about denying your case if they have asked to take your recorded statement. The insurance adjuster will try to get you to make statements that weaken your claim. You should always contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney before giving a recorded statement.
- How much should I receive in weekly lost wages? If you are out of work due to your work injury, you should receive tax-free benefits in the amount of ⅔ of your pre-injury average weekly wage. The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act contains a weekly maximum and minimum of disability benefits. If you are back at work but making less than you did prior to your injury, then you are entitled to receive ⅔ of the difference in wages.
- What should I do if my case was denied? You should immediately contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Our North Carolina board-certified workers’ compensation attorneys can help you fight the denial of your case. We will try to resolve the dispute with the insurance company, but we are also prepared to take your case to a hearing if necessary.
- When should I consider hiring an attorney? Hiring an attorney early in your claim will likely maximize your recovery. Even if the insurance company is paying for your treatment and lost wages, disputes may arise later in your case. At that point, it may be too late for an attorney to preserve your right to workers’ compensation benefits.
- How are workers’ compensation attorneys paid? Workers’ compensation attorneys are paid on a contingency basis, meaning we don’t get paid unless you do. North Carolina workers’ compensation attorney fees are generally 25% of the amount your attorney recovers for an injured worker.
