When the unimaginable happens during an otherwise normal shift and a worker finds himself or herself being taken to an area hospital to be treated for a serious work-related injury, a host of questions will undoubtedly go through their mind: How will I make ends meet if I can’t go back to work? Who’s going to pay for my medical expenses?
The simple answer to these questions is, of course, workers’ compensation benefits. Indeed, injured workers can and should take very real comfort in the fact they’ll be able to submit a claim for these benefits that, when approved, will see some much-needed funds directed their way to cover everything from medical bills to the mortgage.
Injured workers should also take very real comfort in the fact that if their claim for workers’ compensation benefits is denied, they can enlist the services of a knowledgeable, assertive and determined advocate to fight on their behalf.
At the Vincent Law Firm, P.C., we have a long and distinguished history of helping injured workers throughout Dare, Camden and Currituck Counties whose claims have been unjustly denied.
Our founding attorney, Branch W. Vincent III, has been assisting injured workers since 1986, and was among the first attorneys in the state to be certified in the area of workers’ compensation by the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization.
What this means is that he has been recognized by his peers in the legal community for having special knowledge, skill and experience in this often complex area of the law.
What it means for you, the client, is that he knows how to counter the many arguments made by insurance companies for denying claims, fully prepare you for any hearings, and fight to secure the workers’ compensation benefits you need and deserve.
