How does working from home affect my workers’ comp case?
The other day in North Carolina, someone called me that was working at home, and while they were working at home, they were seriously injured. They wanted to file – they tried to file their workers’ compensation claim, and the company said that it wasn’t covered because they weren’t at an actual workplace. This is a red flag that you have a tricky employer that’s not being honest with you. The reality is, you do not have to be on your worksite in order to have a valid workers’ compensation claim if the activity that you’re doing away from the worksite is still benefiting your employer and the things they’re attempting to accomplish. If you’ve been injured away from your worksite and your claim has been denied or even if your employer is starting to treat you differently and trying to be more distanced from you, that’s a red flag that you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney in Richmond County, NC. Call our office because we know your rights and the employer’s limitations of their rights. We will use this knowledge to fight for you and protect you and your family. Just give us a call.
