When dealing with an injury sustained in your workplace, a personal injury or workers’ compensation case may be filed to help recover money for medical expenses, lost earnings, and other damages.
Fighting with insurance companies and your employer to pay for your injuries can not only be stressful, but time-consuming as well — and it can even lead to your window of opportunity to file a workers compensation claim expiring, preventing you from retaining any compensation for your injuries.
Since the laws surrounding work related accidents are strict and one small mistake can jeopardize the entire attempt to secure funds, it’s vital to enlist the help of an experienced legal team. Not only will we fight to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive proper compensation, but we’ll also be advocating for your best general interests throughout the duration of your case.
Workers’ compensation areas of practice
At Whitley Clark , we handle all types of cases related to workplace accidents throughout the entire state, from Charlotte to Raleigh to Jacksonville, and everywhere in between. Our firm handles many different types of workers’ compensation claims, including those that involve:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Equipment malfunction
- Defective tools

- Slip and Falls
- Falling objects

- Common Construction Accident Causes
While there are some workplace accidents that result from workers making innocent mistakes, many times these accidents result from negligence, whether on the part of the employer or other employees. Other common causes typically deal with exposure to hazardous work environments, whether it’s chemicals, electrical wiring, slippery surfaces, or poorly maintained properties.
