Specialists in Workers’ Comp Law
Our North Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers have nearly 200 years of combined legal experience, and our team is led by two NC State Board-Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation law. These attorneys have met the NC State Bar’s strict requirements and passed a rigorous exam in work injury law.
We’re proud of the results we’ve obtained for injured workers in North Carolina, including Salisbury. Recent settlements and judgments include:
- Settlement | $1,800,000 Workers’ Compensation – Managing partner Gene Riddle represented a client who was hit head-on while driving a truck for work. He suffered permanently disabling injuries, including the eventual loss of his left leg below the knee. Attorney Riddle negotiated with both the workers’ comp carrier as well as the truck insurance company for the defendant, and ultimately obtained a settlement of $1.8 million.
- Settlement | $829,000 Workers’ Compensation – Attorney Christopher Brantley represented a 50-year-old employee of a cellular tower company who was struck by a falling tree while looking for locations for cell towers. He suffered severe head injuries which left him with cognitive deficits, semi-paralysis on his left side as well as fractures to his left leg. An extensive life care plan was put into place and future costs were analyzed, and we ultimately reached a settlement for $829,000 in compensation for our client.
- Settlement | $750,000 Workers’ Compensation – Attorneys Gene Riddle and Adam Smith represented a man who suffered serious injuries to both legs requiring surgery when he was involved in a motor vehicle collision while on the job. The wreck resulted in permanent damage to the client’s legs. After getting depositions from witnesses and medical providers and representing our client at mediation we were able to settle the claim for $750,000.

North Carolina law requires most employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance provides benefits to workers who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. An injury or illness is covered under workers’ compensation insurance if it took place in the “course and scope” of your employment.
Furthermore, although hard to define, you may even be covered for an injury that occurs while you are on break or simply on the employer’s premises.
