Compensation for Workplace Accident Victims in Eastern North Carolina

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a work accident in Eastern North Carolina, you have the right to consult an experienced lawyer.

That lawyer can be found at Schulz Stephenson Law. With more than 25 years of experience on our side, we understand the devastating effects that a work accident can have. We know that these accidents come with the stress of worrying about how mortgages, car payments and other living expenses will get paid for, not to mention medical bills. Throughout Eastern North Carolina, people turn to us because we are committed to getting workers the benefits they need, through workers’ compensation or other means.

Addressing all Types of On-the-Job Accidents and Injuries

Numerous work injuries are suffered suddenly in accidents. These accidents can occur in any workplace, from office buildings to factories. Other injuries develop over time. These are referred to as occupational illnesses and injuries, and include issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Our attorneys are available to address all types of workplace injuries, as well as workplace death cases.

Using Our Experience to Make a Difference

We assist with all steps in the process, including filing the initial claim for workers’ compensation benefits, appealing denials of benefits and getting benefits reinstated after they are terminated inappropriately.

We are very familiar with the requirements of the state’s Workers’ Compensation Act. We know how to navigate through those requirements to help you get all of the benefits allowed by the law. The insurance company will strive to limit what it has to pay out, going as far as denying valid claims. We know how to stand up to these insurance companies.

Hearings in these matters are handled by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. These are administrative matters that are quite different from other legal matters. Nonetheless, we have the experience to handle them.

In addition, if a work accident was the result of negligence by a third party (a party other than the victim or the employer), we can pursue additional compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Representing Work Accident Victims on a Contingency Basis

We represent workplace accident victims on a contingency basis. That means that you will not have to pay anything unless we get compensation for you.

Our office hours are 8:30 to 5:00 Monday through Friday. Evening appointments are available upon request. If you are unable to travel to our office, we can make accommodations as needed.
