Workers Compensation Lawyer
The benefits obtained from a workers’ compensation claim allow individuals to continue their current way of life. This is often a way of taking care of one’s family. However, some claims are denied and when filing a claim, there is a precise process that needs to be followed. A failure to do so could lead to a denial and then require a subsequent appeal. The best way to avoid these steps is to hire a workers’ compensation attorney. This will help to get you the following benefits:
- Weekly wages
- Payment of medical bills
- Benefits for impairment
- Vocational rehab
Workers Compensation Disability
There are specific measures that are taken for total disability and partial disability. There are also differences in compensation for permanent and temporary impairments. Sorting through all those details can be overwhelming to those without a background in workers’ compensation law. For example, total disability refers to the inability to work at any kind of job. Meanwhile, partial disability refers to one’s ability to perform some, but not all, work-related duties. Medical documentation plays a major role in these claims and one of our attorneys at the Law Offices of William H. Harding will instruct you on the proper steps to take. We are ready to be your workers compensation attorney in Gastonia, NC.
