Committed to Your Personal
& Financial Recovery

Charlotte Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Serving Injured Workers in Mecklenburg County & All of North Carolina

If you have been injured in the workplace, the best outcome is that you will recover completely after a few days or a few weeks. Unfortunately, some workplace injuries are far more serious and complicated.

At Jetton & Meredith, our Charlotte workers’ compensation lawyers represent workers who have been injured on the job or suffer from an occupational illness. No matter your situation, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions about North Carolina’s workers’ compensation program.

To get started on your claim, contact us online or call (704) 931-5535.

Why Pursue a Workers’ Compensation Claim

In theory, workers’ compensation is designed to be a relatively simple system meant to protect both employees and employers from lawsuits or benefit denials following a workplace accident.

If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to three main benefits from workers’ compensation:

  • Free medical care for as long as you need it for your work-related injury or illness
  • A weekly disability benefit for as long as you are unable to work or can work only part-time
  • A lump-sum settlement for any percentage of permanent impairment that results from your injury or illness

    Unfortunately, the claims process can be rather complicated. If you have suffered an injury that will result in either work absence or a permanent impairment, it is important to get an attorney’s advice. The workers’ compensation insurance carrier has a financial incentive to deny your claim or send you back to work before you are ready. Without skilled legal representation on your side, you put yourself at a disadvantage and you may be unable to collect the valuable benefits you need and deserve.*

    Dedicated Guidance through the Claims Process

    Your employer will likely have legal representation to protect their interests, which is why you should have an advocate helping to protect yours. A claim may be denied at any time during the course of this process and you may need to file multiple petitions and make numerous appearances at various hearings. Our attorneys can help minimize delays and help your claim make its way through the system as smoothly as possible.*
