Workers Compensation Defense Lawyers in Jacksonville and All of Eastern North Carolina

In North Carolina, most businesses employing three or more workers are required to carry worker's compensation insurance. However, many small business owners either cannot afford it or are unaware they need insurance.

If a worker is injured under this circumstance, the results can be devastating for the uninsured employer. Not only can the employer be held liable for the worker's medical bills, lost wages and other damages due to the injury, he or she can be charged with a crime.
