Heat Injuries Occur Even With Safety Precautions In Place. Manufacturing and construction workers throughout North Carolina know that explosions and fires can happen virtually at any time. Despite safety precautions, a small fire or the wrong mix of chemicals can lead to severe heat injuries.
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., in Cary, North Carolina, we understand that heat injury don’t just happen. Efficiency measures often cause employers to cut corners, putting construction and manufacturing workers at great risk of serious injuries. In other scenarios, a contractor’s lapse of judgment or a manufacturer’s negligent actions may have led to the explosion.
We work on a contingency basis for personal injury claims. A contingency fee basis means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. We also offer contingency fee schedules for other practice areas, such as:
If you or your loved one was injured in an explosion at a manufacturing facility or construction site, entrust our law firm to help you obtain the benefits you are entitled to. Our law firm’s work injury attorneys have decades of experience handling workers’ compensation claims. We will apply our years of experience and legal skills to help you navigate through North Carolina’s workers’ compensation system.
In North Carolina, employers must provide employees with workers’ compensation insurance. This no-fault system covers employees’ work-related injuries, regardless of who caused the accident. In return, injured employees cannot sue their employer for additional compensation. This sounds like a straightforward system, yet insurance companies are known to deny and delay legitimate workers’ compensation claims.
Our law firm is committed to helping you secure the benefits you are entitled to for any lost wages and medical care. We will work with your doctor to understand the extent of medical treatment, including rehabilitative care, you will need. Part of our focus is to help you cover any lost wages or reduced earning capacity if your heat injuries have resulted in a lasting or partial disability. We also have experience securing lifetime workers’ compensation benefits for injured workers with permanent disabilities from a work-related accident. Every case is fact specific. We will use expert testimony to help you obtain the benefits to which you are entitled to.
Our law firm understands the complex interplay between personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. If a third party’s negligent actions caused the explosion, we could help you recover compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation benefits by pursuing a third-party personal injury claim.
The attorneys at our law firm have access to accident scene reconstructionists, engineers, safety experts, and other industry experts available to help us understand if a contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer, or another third party can be held responsible for causing work-related heat injuries. We are fully prepared to prove fault, and secure maximum compensation covering medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
