If you have been injured, you must file a written notice (Form 18 or 18B) with the N.C. Industrial Commission and employer within a limited amount of time. Because of time limits and other important requirements of filing a Worker’s Compensation claim, it is important you call an attorney as soon as possible after your injury or disease diagnosis.

Attorneys who represent injured workers in North Carolina charge an attorney fee on a contingency basis. That means that you only pay a fee if you receive some type of benefits or settlement. Our attorney fee is 25% of your settlement or award. This is the standard charged in the state.
