Workers' Compensation

Determining whether or not you are covered under North Carolina workers' compensation law can be confusing and complicated. At Bain & Rodzik, our attorneys have nearly fifty years of combined experience in North Carolina workers' compensation cases. Our attorneys can help you establish your claim. If you have been injured at work, you may think that the only legal recourse you have is to file a claim for workers' compensation against your employer. Workers' compensation payments are often small, limited in duration, and not required to provide any form of lump sum payment. In addition, compensation for pain and suffering or losses to family members is generally excluded.

In addition to your workers' compensation claim, you may also be able to file a claim against a "third party," such as the manufacturer of unsafe equipment, the owner of the premises where the injury occurred (if different from your employer), or against another company whose employee caused the injury.

Third party personal injury cases can be brought in addition to a workers' compensation case. Unlike a workers' compensation case, however, third party actions can include recovery for pain and suffering and punitive damages. We use our expertise in prosecuting North Carolina workers' compensation cases to your benefit, and we help you obtain the judgment you require to compensate you on a level commensurate with your pain and suffering.
