Helping Injured Workers Receive The Benefits They Deserve
Most companies have safety protocols in place to help reduce the number of workplace accidents. Even so, most on-the-job injuries are caused by accidents. At David & Associates, our attorneys represent individuals in Wilmington and throughout North Carolina who suffered because of on-the-job accidents or repetitive stress injuries.
We represent clients with almost any type of injury, including:
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Chemical exposure
What If A Back Injury Wasn’t Caused By An Accident?
We use our backs for all physical activities, so it’s probably not surprising that it is one of the most commonly injured parts of the human body. Many people who work in construction or other manual labor jobs suffer from back pain, and it’s common for that pain to radiate to the victim’s extremities.
Unlike most workers’ compensation claims, an injured worker may receive compensation for a back injury — even if the injury wasn’t caused by an accident. For example, if an individual’s job was to lift 10-pound boxes every day, and the person hurt his or her back, there is a personal injury claim. The injured person would not need to prove that the back pain was caused by an accident to be eligible for workers’ compensation.
