Surry County Workers’ Compensation
Workers who suffer injuries or develop illnesses related to their jobs may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Whether an injury, illness or disease is work-related is a frequent question for workers. At Royster and Royster, PLLC, we have been helping injured workers obtain benefits under North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law since 1979.
If you have suffered a workplace injury, it is important to notify your employer as soon as possible. If your injury causes you to miss work, obtaining all of the benefits to which you are entitled can be essential to you and your family’s financial well-being.
The workers’ compensation system allows people injured on the job to receive important benefits without having to prove negligence or fault on behalf of an employer. However, insurance providers and companies are not always responsive when it comes to providing complete and fair compensation under the system. Some workers are hesitant to file a workers’ comp claim, or are simply not sure how to proceed after suffering an injury at work. Insurance carriers may offer a settlement that is not fair to the worker, unjustly deny a claim or cut off benefits prematurely.
