Navigating the Maze of Workers' Compensation Benefits | Injury Lawyers Serving New Bern and Cities Throughout Eastern North Carolina

Our attorneys work with our clients' claims at every stage, including filing administrative motions, seeking mediation and representation in full evidentiary hearings, as well as appeals before the North Carolina Industrial Commission, the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Also, because of our experience with the various injuries workers incur, we can help our workers' compensation clients get the medical treatment they need and are entitled to receive. Employers in North Carolina choose the doctors that their injured workers are required to see; however, we can request an independent evaluation, and where necessary, seek an Order changing the treating physician.

Likewise, many insurance companies will try to close out workers' compensation cases with the lowest payment possible. We strive to ensure that our clients are adequately compensated under the law.

Workers have only 30 days to file written notice to an employer after an injury. Many workers delay filing for workers' compensation because they do not realize how badly they are injured, only to later learn their claims are denied after exceeding this time limit.

Timing is important in worker's compensation cases. But if you have missed this deadline you may still have legal options for collecting compensation. To learn more, please contact Mewborn & DeSelms, Attorneys at Law.
