Johnston County Workers' Comp Attorneys

Lawyers Helping Employees Who Were Injured at Work in Wake County, NC

Were you injured at work? Have your injuries kept you from returning to your job, or are they preventing you from performing your normal daily activities? If the answer to these questions is yes, it is understandable that you might be feeling anxious and confused over the difficult reality of your situation. Depending on the extent of your injury, you may need many months of medical treatment and rehabilitation, or you may even be permanently disabled. According to the law in North Carolina, most employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. Unfortunately, just having work comp coverage does not always mean that it will be easy to get the benefits you deserve following an on-the-job injury.

At the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC, we realize that workers who have been hurt while doing their jobs are usually eligible for workers' comp benefits. However, we also understand that workers' compensation insurance companies often make collecting those benefits very challenging. If you have been injured at work, you have suffered enough. You do not deserve to be ignored or mistreated in your attempts to collect the benefits to which you are entitled under the law. Our lawyers have more than 35 years of combined legal experience, and we are committed to helping you get what you need to get back on your feet and back to work as quickly as possible.

Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers in Smithfield

The knowledgeable team at our law firm works hard every day to protect the rights of employees who have been injured on the job. With our background and experience, we recognize that doing so often requires us to stand up to stubborn employers and uncooperative insurance carriers. Our lawyers will not be tricked or intimidated into backing down, and we will not agree to a settlement that fails to account for the full extent of your work-related injuries. We will continue to fight on your behalf until you get the full benefits that you deserve.

While some industries and occupations have a reputation for being particularly dangerous, we know that work-related accidents and injuries can happen to any employee. Our attorneys advocate for injured workers from a full range of jobs, including employees of factories, construction companies, restaurants, retail stores, and offices, just to name a few.

The Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC is also prepared to handle any type of work injury, including those caused by:

Our team is also fully aware that work-related accidents can cause more than just physical injuries. With this in mind, we help injured victims seek benefits for depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health injuries caused by a workplace accident.

Why Should I Hire a Workers' Compensation Lawyer?

Because of the law in North Carolina that requires most employers to carry workers' comp coverage, many injured employees tend to believe that obtaining benefits will be straightforward and easy. Unfortunately, things do not always work out that way. If your injury is minor—such as a sprained ankle that caused you to miss a single day's work with no lingering issues—hiring a lawyer to recover that day's wages might not be necessary. If your ankle was broken and you required a series of surgeries or your injury claim is not being handled properly, an attorney can assist you in sorting out all of the details. It is also best to work with an attorney if you are uncertain about returning to work or if there is the possibility of third-party liability for your injuries.
