Welcome to The Injured Worker Blog
This blog will cover issues and news about workers’ compensation and workplace accidents in North Carolina. In exploring legal issues relevant to workers’ compensation claims, the firm hopes to provide a valuable resource for both injured workers in North Carolina and for the attorneys who practice in this area.
One primary focus of the blog will be analysis of appellate court cases that interpret the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. Hopefully, the analysis will be relevant to workers and attorneys alike. Matt also plans to cover any other item — employment news, legislative efforts — that touch on workplace accidents.
