Let our NC workers' compensation attorneys work for you
If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to benefits and a portion of your wages. This holds true even if you were at fault, according to North Carolina workers' compensation rules.
Unfortunately, your employer and the insurance company may not be on your side when you are injured. To protect your interests, it's wise to contact a North Carolina workers' compensation attorney.
Does North Carolina workers' compensation only cover my medical bills?
"In North Carolina, workers compensation law is intended to provide payment of medical expenses and wage loss benefits for persons entitled to workers compensation benefits. If you qualify for workers compensation benefits you may be entitled to have your medical treatment related to your work injury provided by your employer or their workers compensation insurance carrier. You also may be entitled to wage loss benefits while you are unable to work because of your injury."
At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we can fight for your workers' compensation claim (also known informally as Workman's Comp, Workmen's Comp, Workers Comp, Workers' Comp, Work Comp, Worker Comp, or even simply WC). We can put our experience and resources to work for you. Our lawyers don't represent insurance companies. We help people just like you.

There is a reason you are visiting this page. Perhaps you are concerned about:
- You are being forced to return to work before you are ready to do so.
- You are being forced to go back to a 'made-up' position that offers no dignity, job security or enjoyment.
- Your employer promised if you return to work he would accommodate your medical needs but has failed to do so.
- You are unhappy with the medical provider the insurance company selected and you don't know how to petition the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) for a new medical team or second opinion.
- Your vocational rehabilitation (voc rehab) plan doesn't train you for the type of well-paid job you can handle, because there is low-level work (inside or outside the company) that you can do without additional training.
- Your doctor says you can't lift heavy objects due to a knee injury, back injury or shoulder injury, but your employer expects you to push/pull heavy carts, which is just as dangerous.
- You worry about paying for potential future needs, such as a knee replacement or other orthopedic surgery.
- You worry that the carrier may stop your weekly Workers' Compensation checks because you briefly returned to work.
- Your NC Workers' Compensation benefits have been terminated and you don't understand why.
- Your NC Workers' Compensation checks are not arriving consistently or on time.
If you are facing any of these issues — we understand.
