If you have suffered an injury while on the job, the workers' compensation system is intended to provide compensation for your medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, and any temporary or permanent disability. Unfortunately, you cannot always depend on the system to provide all of the compensation and treatment you need. The fact is, your employer's workers' compensation insurance company has a vested interest in minimizing the compensation it provides to injured people. That's where a qualified workers' compensation lawyer in Raleigh, NC, can help.

The Workers' Compensation System
Under North Carolina law, your employer's insurance company gets to choose the medical doctor who evaluates and treats your injury. These doctors tend to minimize the extent of injuries, and the amount of treatment and rehabilitation workers need to recover to the fullest extent possible. Fortunately, the North Carolina Industrial Commission is a neutral governmental entity and reviews all major agreements for content and fairness. However, you must communicate with the NCIC and the employer's insurance carrier in the correct manner in order to maximize the benefits you deserve. Without a workers' compensation lawyer on your side, you are at a real disadvantage.
