North Carolina’s Workers compensation law provides a means to get medical treatment and payment for work-related injuries and everything that stems from them. This comes through insurance, medical benefits and/or employers directly. Work related injuries can be sudden, devastating, and tragic. At the Law Offices of Eric H. Kassor, PA our attorney, Eric, works to help employees that have been hurt while on the job. Whether it’s a fall off a forklift, a slip and fall, being struck by an object, or workplace violence, Eric is here to help you navigate this complicated area of law to ensure that you receive all the benefits you deserve.
Employees can suffer injuries in any type of workplace and while many jobs can involve dangerous tasks that are inherently unavoidable due to their location, every effort should be made to ensure their safety. Unfortunately, accidents do happen and when they do they can cause very serious injuries.
Eric deals with workers compensation cases ranging from manufacturing workers with back injuries, to high technology employees with carpal tunnel syndrome due to repetitive trauma, to the spouses and children of workers who are seeking death benefits following a work-related death.
These workers compensation benefits can include payment of medical bills, job training, temporary total disability benefits, permanent partial disability benefits, total disability benefits, and death benefits if the employee died as a result of a work-related injury.
