Workers’ Compensation Overview
If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace accident, you can seek benefits by filing a workers’ compensation claim. At the law firm of Henson, Talley & Scallon LLP, we walk you through this process and defend your rights to get the compensation you and your family deserve.

Most people only have a basic understanding of workers’ compensation and the benefits offered to them if they were injured in a workplace accident. Led by attorney Karen Strom Talley, we help you navigate through the complex benefits claims process. We can explain the steps you need to take to help ensure maximum potential for getting the care you need and the benefits you are entitled to receive, whether it is a catastrophic back injury from a fall or an issue involving carpal tunnel syndrome.
In addition, we are experienced personal injury attorneys who can effectively investigate your accident to identify all liable parties, including equipment manufacturers and contractors. If someone other than your employer is responsible for your back injury or other work accident injury, you may be able to file a third-party liability claim to receive monetary damages in addition to workers’ compensation.
What If Your Claim Is Denied?
Many workers’ comp claims are initially delayed or denied, often on technicalities. Unfortunately, denied disability can cause severe financial hardships to families struggling to pay medical bills and replace the lost wages of an injured worker.
We are dedicated to seeing that you receive the maximum benefits allowed by law. If your workers’ compensation claim was delayed or denied, we will help protect your rights. We will advocate for you before the commissioners of the North Carolina Industrial Commission who will decide on your case.
