VA & NC State Workers' Compensation
Workers' compensation is a complicated area of the law, and there are often changes to the law. If a lawyer doesn't regularly practice in this area, they could miss something important to your case. At The Law Firm of Charlene A. Morring, PC, workers' compensation law is a big part of what we do every day. Attorney Charlene Morring has been helping people who were injured at work with their workers' comp claims for over sixteen years. She's been called "the Queen of Workers' Comp" because her depth of experience in this area has given her the skills to successfully take on difficult workers' comp cases that other attorneys might turn away.
At Morring Law, we have handled hundreds of Virginia and North Carolina workers' comp cases. The types of cases we see may be familiar, but they are never routine. That's because we see more than the legal claim. We see the person behind the claim. We see your pain, and frustrations, and worries for the future—and that's what motivates us to fight for you like we would for our own family.
Your Experienced Guide Through the Workers' Comp Maze
You're hurt, you can't work, and the bills are piling up. You might have even filed a claim for workers' comp and been denied. Perhaps you're holding back on filing a claim because you don't want to make trouble for your boss. Or maybe you're dealing with so much pain that filing a claim hasn't been a priority. Whatever your situation, you need and deserve the money that workers' comp would provide,
That's where we come in. If you have filed a claim and been denied, you may not even know the reason why. We will analyze your denial and file an appeal. The claims and appeal process can be confusing, but we've been through it hundreds of times and know how to get a good outcome.
If you haven't yet filed, we will help you jump-start that process; the longer you wait to file, the longer the delay until you get benefits. Don't worry that you're hurting your employer by filing; employers carry insurance in case workers get injured, and your payments will come out of the insurance company's pocket, not your boss's.
If you have filed, and been awarded benefits, you may find that they're not enough. Morring Law can help with that, too. If the insurance company didn't base its calculations on all of the wages you were earning before you got hurt, you won't get the right amount of benefits. We will make sure the insurance company is using the right numbers to calculate your benefits so you don't get shortchanged.
