You may not think you need an attorney to handle a workers’ compensation claim. You may fear retaliation from your employer for filing a workers’ compensation claim. You may feel the process is straight-forward enough to handle on your own or the insurance company may assure you that it will help you through the claim. But they cannot file your claim for you, and there are deadlines which could cause you to lose valuable rights.
Having an advocate at your side to represent you and communicate the facts of your workers’ compensation claim can be the difference between a successful claim and denied claim, between returning to work and losing your job. At Iorio Law we provide aggressive representation for hard-working residents throughout the state of North Carolina.
If you have been injured on the job, you need an attorney to protect your rights and give you peace of mind during such a trying time in your life. Contact us at 336-275-8234.
Even if you start your workers’ compensation claim without the help of an attorney, you will likely find it helpful to have one at some point in the process. Work restrictions could be placed on you by your doctor. Despite what your employer claims, there may be no suitable employment available for you within the company. Under the Workers’ Compensation Act you have to prove your disability; that is difficult to do on your own. The State of North Carolina has laws in place to protect you against any type of retaliation from your employer, whether it is because you filed a claim or hired an attorney.
At our law firm, we look out for your best interests and fight for what is right and fair. Your livelihood is at stake and you need someone to insulate you from a sometimes contentious process. Despite what you may believe about so-called “simple” workers’ compensation claims, you need protection.

My dedicated staff has many years of experience dealing with the emotional and physical issues of an individual who is out of work because of a work-related injury or illness. If you have suffered a work-related accident or occupational disease we can help. We handle all aspects of the claim including making certain that your weekly compensation check arrives on time. It is bad enough being out of work without having to worry about missing or late checks. We handle that.
