North Carolina’s workers’ comp laws are case specific, and it can be difficult for an individual to successfully secure benefits without representation. For more than 25 years, attorney Allen Smith has been helping injured workers assert their rights while pursuing benefits and compensation. Just as each case presents its own unique challenges, attorney Smith tailors his approach to the individual needs and goals of his clients.
Helping You Through The Workers’ Compensation Process
We represent all employees, including employees of small contracting companies, union employees and undocumented workers after a workplace injury. Our firm is known for advocating for victims in the local community, and our goal is to make a significant difference in the outcome of your claim.
Some of the most common issues we see in workers’ compensation claims are:
- Being coerced to going back to work before you are physically ready
- Receiving your salary instead of filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Being assigned a false or made-up job
- Receiving inadequate medical care
- Failing to have all of your medical costs covered by your employer’s insurer
- Failing to receive compensation for mileage as you travel to your medical appointments
- Appealing a denied workers’ compensation claim
We understand the issues facing injured workers. We build strong claims that aggressively pursue the compensation and benefits our clients and their families deserve.
