Workers Compensation Internal Organ Injury Claims
Internal organ injuries can be caused by many different kinds of workplace related accidents, including:
• Crush Accidents
• Thermal and chemical burns
• Work related automobile or truck accidents
• Falls from ladders or scaffolds
• Being struck by a falling object
• Slip and fall
• Trench Collapse
Internal organ injuries include concussions, ruptured spleens, kidney damage, liver damage, injuries to the heart and aorta, and collapsed lungs. Internal organ injuries can be permanent and can leave you permanently disabled.
Under North Carolina workers’ compensation law, you have the right to file a claim for workers’ compensation and obtain benefits for medical treatment, disability, physical therapy, and vocational rehabilitation.
When these injuries occur in the workplace or on a job site, it may be due to the negligence of another person. If this is that case, you may file a workers’ compensation claim with your employers’ insurance company and a third-party claim against the negligent person or party (not employed by your company) who caused your injury. You may be able to collect damages from both claims. At the law firm of Hemmings & Stevens, PLLC, we will determine whether there is some person or company other than your employer who is responsible for your injury and help you recover the damages you deserve.
