The biggest risks of handling a case without an attorney are that mistakes can be made, or that the best strategy available for your claim won’t be used.
People who are not experienced in North Carolina Workers’ Compensation law aren’t familiar with the language, the statutes, the entities involved, or the strategies employed by insurance companies and their employers. An experienced attorney will have worked on these particular cases before, resulting in a formulated practice that gives them insight on how to best determine what to do in certain circumstances.
Having this type of experience on your side (for this very nuanced area of law) is an incredible asset to have for your case. An attorney that makes workers’ compensation their top priority and practice area enables them to understand the intricacies of this process in a way that can benefit their clients in the best possible way.
