Yes! We can help. It is not necessary for you to live in the Raleigh area for us to represent you in a workers’ compensation and/or Social Security disability claim.
In workers’ compensation cases, assuming NC has jurisdiction over your claim: injury occurred here, employer’s principal place of business is here, if the employee’s principal place of business is here or if the employment contract was finalized here, we can represent you! In fact, we represent many clients that either met one of the conditions noted above and continue to live out of state, or have moved out of state after their NC injury. Sometimes, even if another state has jurisdiction over your claim in conjunction with NC, we can still represent you in the NC claim and help you decide which jurisdiction offers better benefits. Often, NC offers better benefits than other states.
Whether in another state, or just in another region of NC, if your claim goes to trial, there is strong likelihood some of the litigation will take place right in our own backyard in Raleigh. We are conveniently located near the NC Industrial Commission, which hears all workers’ compensation disputes, as well as near the NC Court of Appeals and NC Supreme Court.
In Social Security disability claims, our area of practice narrows to Eastern NC, where we are most familiar with the hearing offices and judges. We regularly try disability cases in Raleigh, Fayetteville, New Bern, Wilmington and other local hearing sites.
Just give us a call. If we agree our involvement in your case is a good idea, we will put a New Client Package in the mail to you right away! With the assistance of telephones, email and other technology, there is virtually no difference in the level of representation you receive whether you live in Raleigh or not. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
