Workers' Compensation Benefits

North Carolina workers' compensation attorneys Jerry Parker and Robert Frey are ready to work hard to obtain all of the benefits afforded to you under the law.

We all work hard for our money to live, eat and play. So if we're injured on the job unexpectedly, we expect the promises afforded to use under North Carolina's workers' compensation law to be fulfilled. Unfortunately, that isn't the case much of the time. Your employer and its workers' comp insurance company try to find cracks in your story or situation — any avenue to avoid paying your benefits in full. They're a business, so their interests may not be entirely aligned with yours.

Robert Frey and his experienced staff at the Parker & Frey PLLC is a board-certified specialist in workers' compensation. Parker & Frey specializes in helping injured workers like you obtain the benefits you're entitled to under the law. Your claims adjuster is not there to protect your rights. Don't ever accept what someone tells you, unless you know he or she has your best interest at heart. Many people believe that because their employer or an insurance company told them that they can't do something, then it is not possible. We will teach you what your legal rights are.

Do not treat with a doctor who does not have your best interest at heart. If you use a doctor who was selected by your adjuster or employer, whose interest will the doctor protect? Yours or your insurance company's? Most doctors in the state of North Carolina are unwilling to treat workers' compensation patients.

We can assist you in finding a doctor whose interest is your recovery.
