Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “Can my employer fire me because I filed a workers’ compensation claim?”

Workplace accidents happen all the time. Mistakes happen, equipment fails, and other unplanned events occur on a daily basis.

In North Carolina, employees who are injured while on the job might be entitled to workers’ compensation to help them through the tough times that might follow an accident. While compensation should be available, this is not always the case.
