If you suffer from a workplace injury or occupational disease, you may have rights under North Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation laws. These laws can entitle workers to benefits such as lost wages, compensation for disabilities, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation.
You may have questions about what benefits are available, how to file and appeal claims, and how best to secure necessary medical treatment. Patterson Harkavy’s attorneys can help answer these questions and work to ensure you receive all the benefits you deserve.
Patterson Harkavy’s attorneys have represented workers’ compensation claimants for more than 30 years. Attorney Hank Patterson is board-certified in workers’ compensation law, and has litigated many of the seminal cases defining the bounds of workers’ compensation law in North Carolina. Hank and attorney Narendra Ghosh also write extensively about workers’ compensation, and frequently speak at attorney conferences addressing developments in workers’ compensation law.
