Dealing with a workers’ compensation claim can be a frustrating and exhaustive process, especially if it gets denied. Workers’ compensation is a disability benefit designed to provide financial assistance to workers that are injured on the job or while performing job related duties. Although every injured individual that works for public, private, state and municipal agencies should be entitled to workers’ compensation, there are times when a claim is denied.
When an injured individual is denied a workers’ compensation claim, they do not receive benefits they desperately need while they are out of work and recovering from their injuries. If you or a loved one has filed a workers’ compensation claim in Cary, NC or a surrounding area and it has been denied, contact Ledbetter & Titsworth. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will do everything they can to get you the benefits you deserve.

- Injuries occurred as a result of an accident
- Injuries occurred during the course of company activities
- Injuries are a result of your work environment
