How Can a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Help?

The lawyers at Kreger Law Firm don’t represent large insurance companies. We represent real people – just like you. If you are faced with a North Carolina Workers’ Compensation case, it may feel as though you’re fighting a complex and confusing legal system, and having to make life-changing decisions along the way. The lawyers at Kreger Law Firm are here to lead you through every stage of the Workers’ Compensation process.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

North Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation laws provide compensation for employees injured while at work. However, not every injury qualifies an employee for compensation. For an injury to be compensable under North Carolina law, the injury must have involved an accident, and the injury must arise out of and be in the course of employment.

To determine whether your injury occurred by an accident, out of your employment, and in the course of employment can often involve a complex factual and legal analysis.
