Greensboro Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

We understand the ins and outs of North Carolina workers’ compensation law and we will use that knowledge to your advantage at all times.
What is Workers’ Compensation?
On the job injuries can range from temporary to more permanent injuries. Whenever you are injured on the job, or during the course of your work, you should find out if your injuries are covered under workers’ compensation insurance.
Fortunately, the great majority of workers are covered under their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. This insurance covers:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Other rehabilitative procedures
