"The NC Work Comp laws can be a bit complicated if not downright confusing at times" - Ralph Meekins, Shelby Workmans Compensation Lawyer

One of the first questions people have is: Am I covered by the Workers Compensation Laws?

Generally speaking, the NC Workers' Compensation Act is intended to be inclusive in nature. Whether you're hurt on a construction site or at the office, there's a good chance you're covered.

If the employer has three or more full-time employees, the Work Comp laws are intended to protect or "cover" employees injured in the course and scope of employment.

Our Shelby Workers' Compensation Lawyers like to sit down with potential clients, take a look at what happened, and provide guidance on the most appropriate way to move forward.

We do not charge for legal consultations for Work Comp cases in Cleveland County or Rutherford County.

What you tell us is confidential. It's protected by something called the attorney-client privilege.

That's important, especially for Work Comp cases, because sometimes the employee fears what will happen if they make a claim for an on the job injury.

They worry their boss will fire them if they make a claim for an injury.
