Raleigh Workplace Accident Lawyers
Helping Victims of Injuries & Accidents at Work
Edwards Kirby is committed to representing hard-working people across North Carolina who have been injured in on-the-job accidents and other incidents at the workplace. We know what a difference fair compensation, beyond workers’ comp benefits, can have for an injured worker and their family. Our Raleigh workplace accident attorneys fight for results.
Our Success Record Speaks for Itself
Our attorneys won the largest workplace violence jury verdict in U.S. history in a case involving multiple murders in an Asheville, North Carolina workplace violence incident. We have an outstanding track record of success representing victims of burns, explosions, electrocution, construction equipment accidents, and other occurrences of workplace danger.
Pursuing FULL Compensation for Third-Party Liability
While many states won’t allow employees to sue their own employer in a job accident case, it may be possible to hold a third party responsible for a worker’s injuries. The responsible party might be an equipment manufacturer, a supplier, an independent contractor, or even an employment agency liable for screening or hiring, especially in workplace violence situations.
To find out what compensation you may be able to receive, call (919) 335-7005. We want to help you seek justice and rebuild.
Going Beyond North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Benefits
While our Raleigh work injury at Edwards Kirby do not handle workers’ compensation claims, we can work closely with your workers’ comp attorney to make sure that your income and immediate medical expenses are protected while we investigate a personal injury or wrongful death claim against one or more third-party defendants.
A personal injury claim can cover less tangible components of an injury that workers’ comp does not cover, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Full compensation for lost earnings
These conditions occur in the aftermath of a workplace, construction, or industrial injury. They are not typically covered by workers’ compensation, and yet they should be provided for if a third party was responsible for your injuries. We will consider every possible party that could be to blame and will pursue the maximum compensation you need – and deserve.
