Clarence’s Story: Injured on the Job

Clarence had been driving a tractor trailer for more than 20 years when the unthinkable happened. He lost control of the trailer and quickly realized that his career – and his life – could be cut short. Fortunately, he survived the accident, but his trials weren’t over. This is his story:

As Clarence healed, he learned that his employer felt the accident could have been prevented. He had been a loyal employee with no other accidents on his record, but still the trucking company let him go. However, because Clarence was injured on the job, he was entitled to compensation for his medical expenses, lost earnings, and more.

Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Clarence knew he needed legal guidance as soon as his employer determined the accident was his fault. Although he was let go, our Workers’ Compensation team helped him obtain wage replacement benefits, removing some of the financial stress and allowing him to focus on healing from the accident. Any worker with sufficient evidence that they were injured as a direct result of their work environment should be compensated for wage loss and medical treatment. Our attorneys are passionate about protecting the rights of injured workers in North Carolina.
