When A Work Accident Occurs, We Have Your Back
Regardless of the many precautions you take at work or how many safeguards your employer has seemingly put in place, accidents happen. This is especially true for blue-collar workers whose jobs, by their very definition, are dangerous. When mishaps occur, as a worker, you are entitled to have all of your expenses covered in a reasonable time frame.
If an employer or insurance company fails to meet its burden of making you whole for your lost wages, pain and suffering, physical or other rehabilitative therapy, medical bills, and long-term disability, that’s the time to call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at Harbinson & Brzykcy, Attorneys at Law.
Not all workplace-related injuries are covered under North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law. In order to qualify, someone must be injured as a result of an on-the-job accident that arises out of their employment. In addition, the employer must be covered by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act.

Attorneys You Can Rely On To Protect Your Benefits
It is true that when it comes to workers’ comp, it is hard to rely on your employer or their insurance company for advice. You need a trusted advocate in your corner.
State law decrees that employees, or their attorneys, give notice of work-related injuries to employers. North Carolina General Statute § 97-22 reads, in part, “[E]very injured employee or his representative shall immediately on the occurrence of an accident, or as soon thereafter as practicable, give or cause to be given to the employer a written notice of the accident.”
Like most civil statutes, there is a statute of limitations for the filing of workers’ compensation claims (two years), and naturally, most employers will sit back and hope those two years pass before an injured worker decides to retain legal counsel.
That is why it is imperative to call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney from Harbinson & Brzykcy, Attorneys at Law. We will file all requisite forms and paperwork without delay to ensure no employer ever takes advantage of one of our clients.
A common case in North Carolina is that injured workers complain they were coerced by an insurance representative or investigator to admit a workplace accident was either partially or entirely their fault – or to say something that later hampered their chances of receiving compensation for their injuries. That will never happen to a client of Harbinson & Brzykcy, Attorneys at Law, as we will always help our clients avoid such deceitful traps. Sometimes, severe injuries prevent you from returning to work, and we are ready to advise you and help you with the required paperwork.
