If you have been injured on the job and your claim has been accepted by the insurance carrier, then you are entitled to receive a weekly check when your doctor has written you out of work due to your injury or given you work restrictions that your employer cannot accommodate. Pursuant to N.C. § 97-29, when an employee qualifies for total disability, the employer shall pay the injured employee a weekly compensation equal to sixty-six and two-thirds (66 2/3%) percent of his average weekly wage. This means you will receive a weekly compensation check until your doctor writes you back to work or your employer can accommodate your restrictions. This temporary total disability benefits check will not be taxed and your health insurance will not be taken out of this check. You will, therefore, need to make arrangements to pay your health insurance with your employer.  In the event that you owe child support and there is an order of garnishment, the weekly obligation will be taken from your disability check. 

When will I start receiving this weekly check?

There is a 7 day waiting period to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Pursuant to N.C. § 97-28, no compensation shall be allowed in the first seven calendar days of disability resulting from an injury. On the 8th calendar day you will qualify to receive the weekly compensation check and, in most cases, it will be paid to you the following week, just like a paycheck. If you are written out of work for more than 21 days then you will qualify to receive payment for the 7 day waiting period.

At Campbell & Associates, we realize that your bills do not stop piling up just because you get hurt on the job. We understand how important it is that our clients understand how and when disability benefits will be paid so that they can continue to pay their bills after their injury. If you or a loved one was injured on the job, call us today at 704-333-0885. Our experienced Workers’ Compensation attorneys are here to help you get life back on track. With convenient office locations in Charlotte, Hickory, Gastonia, Monroe and Rock Hill you’re just a short distance away from the help you deserve.

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents occur every day across the country and remains to be the one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. It’s reported by the Association For Safe Road Travel that each year some 2.5 million individuals in the United States are injured or disabled due to auto accidents and another 37,000 individuals are killed each year in auto accidents. These numbers are startling considering that the majority of us spend a fair amount of time daily either as a driver or passenger on the roads and we’re very susceptible to these types of injuries or even death.

Common Injuries Sustained From An Auto Accident

Some losses that you may be able to recover are:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages and Income
  • Physical Pain & Suffering
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Distress
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Future Medical Expenses
  • Rehabilitation Expenses
  • Wrongful Death Damages
  • Property Damage
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Punitive Damages

The insurance company may have already made contact with you and tried to get you to sign an agreement or answer some uncomfortable questions about the accident and your injuries all while recording the conversation. While the insurance adjuster is not breaking any laws, they often do not have your best interest in mind when doing their job. Remember a car insurance company’s job is to save their company money, not spend as much as possible, so the insurance adjuster will often attempt to settle out the case for the lowest possible settlement. Before you sign anything, contact us and get a free consultation with a  Campbell & Associates auto accident lawyer and/or staff member.
