and Personal Injury Law
If you have been injured at work, report the injury immediately. This is an extremely crucial step in ensuring your work injury claim meets the requirements established by the North Carolina Industrial Commission (IC) and the General Assembly. Workers’ compensation applications are often denied initially because the injured worker did not give timely notice. This means you must inform your employer of your injuries in writing within 30 days. Even if you miss this deadline, file your claim as soon as you can.
David Gantt is certified as a Specialist in Workers’ Compensation by the North Carolina State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization. This distinction allows him to effectively and knowledgeably represent clients who have been injured in work-related accidents.
We represent clients who suffer from a variety of workplace accident injuries, including:
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Knee injuries
- Ankle and leg injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Arm, wrist and elbow injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Head injuries
- Mental impairments
Aggravation of Preexisting Conditions
Clients often encounter problems when their employer claims the injury is the result of a preexisting condition. However, an employer hires an employee “as is,” meaning they hired the employee knowing of this preexisting condition. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if the preexisting condition is aggravated by your work duties.
We also represent close family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal work accident. We can help pursue a wrongful death claim for the tragic loss of your loved one. Contact an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer at the David Gantt Law Office if you sustained an on-the-job injury. Our office is wheelchair accessible and is staffed by an attentive and highly knowledgeable legal team. We represent clients in Asheville, Hendersonville, Waynesville and throughout western North Carolina.
