One of the most pressing fears that workers have after an injury is that, if they come forward with a workers’ compensation claim, they will lose their job. Employer retaliation of this nature is illegal, and an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand your rights.
In Cary, North Carolina, The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., has been helping injured workers navigate the workers’ compensation process since 1994. We treat all clients like members of our family and fight to make sure they are treated with respect by their employer and their insurance company.
The threat of being fired for coming forward with a claim prevents many injured workers from seeking the benefits they need to pay for their medical bills and other living expenses while unable to work.
What many employees fail to realize, however, is that firing a worker for making a workers’ compensation claim is illegal. If your employer is threatening you with termination, we will stand up for your rights and fight to make sure you are treated with the respect you deserve.
We welcome the opportunity to help you get the benefits you are entitled to for your work-related injury. Contact us today for a free consultation with a Cary wrongful termination attorney.
