Personal injury Lawyer Matt Arnold answers the question: “What qualifies a person to receive Workers’ Compensation benefits?”
As employees of essential businesses and frontline workers, such as doctors and nurses, continue to go to work in North Carolina during the coronavirus pandemic, some of them end up contracting the virus while on the job.
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. A workplace accident should not be the end of your career or a financially devastating situation. 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. There are certain things an employee must do following an accident and similarly, there are mistakes that every employee should try to avoid after an injury. Errors after an accident can be devastating to a workers’ compensation claim and result in a loss of compensation for the injured employee.
