We want to try to maximize your compensation if you were injured on the job
If you are injured at work, you generally can pursue a workers' compensation claim to obtain a portion of your lost wages as well as coverage for your medical care, but you cannot pursue compensation for pain and suffering. In some cases, you may be able to pursue a workers' compensation claim and a third-party claim. A third-party claim may be advisable if your injury was caused by someone who was not your employer or a co-worker. Third-party claims are common when employees are injured in car accidents in which another driver who does not work for the company is at fault. With third-party claims, you may be able to pursue compensation for pain and suffering and other possible damages.
It's wise to contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer in North Carolina if you or a loved one is injured at work. We can examine the circumstances of your potential case and help determine if a third-party claim is warranted. If you were injured at work, you may be entitled to more compensation than you think.

Types of third-party claims
The following is a short list of examples of workers' compensation cases that may lead to a third-party claim:
- An injury due to operation of a machine owned by a company other than your employer (a defective product claim)
- An injury at a construction site which stemmed from a negligent contractor at the site who was working under a different employer
- An injury while working at unsafe premises owned by someone other than your employer
