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.

Wrongful Death

funeral-flowers-374183_640There are few things in life more tragic than the accidental death of a loved one – it happens so suddenly, so unexpectedly. It can be especially challenging if a negligent person or company is to blame, or if it happened on the job. In the midst of your grief, how do you figure out what to do?

The legal term for cases like this is “wrongful death.” Lawyers working in this area deal with a variety of different types of accidents, including auto accidents, truck accidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, on-the-job accidents, and more. We believe that this type of representation requires experience and skill, and we are proud to have that necessary experience at our firm.

The key thing to remember is do not wait.

Contact Campbell & Associates Attorneys at Law – we  can help and take all of that burden away. Our North and South Carolina wrongful death attorneys have years of experience helping persons just like you through these types of difficult times. If your loved one has died due to someone else’s negligence, we can get started today working to preserve evidence, secure witnesses, and obtain critical documents that will help build a case. Our goal is to get you wrongful death damages either through settlement, litigation, or trial.

At Campbell & Associates Attorneys at Law, every client is treated like a person, not a case, not a number, not a file. We will deal with you honestly, carefully, friendly, and fairly, while always focusing on your individual claim or case. And remember, we do not charge you any attorney’s fee unless we get you a settlement offer.

For more information, or to talk to one of our wrongful death lawyers, please call (704) 333-0885. With offices in Charlotte, Gastonia and Hickory and Rock Hill, SC, we represent persons throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.
