“I was having difficulty getting approved for surgery”
“I was removing snow in a parking lot and I slipped and fell. I was having difficulty getting approved for surgery and decided that I needed an attorney. I was referred to Ms.Ramsay by a former client and I was pleased by everything. The Ramsay Law Firm took all of the pressure off of me and let me relax.” Rick in Stanley, 9/19/19
I needed a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
“I hurt my back while lifting bags of cement into a customer’s truck. I tried to handle my claim on my own and couldn’t so I needed a workers’ compensation attorney. My chiropractor at Albemarle Montgomery County Chiropractic Center referred me to the Ramsay Law Firm. Martha always had my best interests and made me feel like I mattered–not just any other client. It didn’t feel like a business arrangement. My paralegal, Cho, always followed up with me, too. I was very lucky to have Martha as my attorney. I can honestly say that I could not have done this without them. I consider both of them great friends and wonderful people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Josh in Albemarle, 6/20/18
“I was denied workers’ comp coverage”
“I was denied workers’ comp coverage for an injury at work when I hurt my arm. A coworker recommended the Ramsay Law Firm. Ms. Ramsay stuck with it and got me to doctors that I needed to see. I am happy with how it turned out. I was kept informed and up-to-date. I would refer her to anyone. Beverly in Rickfield, April 24th, 2018.
“I hurt my back at work and needed an workers’ comp attorney”
“I was hooking up a set of trailers and hurt my back at work. I needed to file a workers’ compensation claim and I know it’s something that I couldn’t do myself. I would definitely recommend Ms. Ramsay for anyone going thru this!” Mark in Lynchburg, April 18, 2018.
“I was attacked by a dog while on the job”
“I was attacked by a dog while I was on the job – in sales. Attorney Ramsay did a great job – very thorough and very confident in her work; very knowledgeable in her craft. She worked hard–to the best of her ability; she fought to get a settlement that was fair. She was very truthful with me and I respect that. Cho (Case Manager) is excellent, as well.” Willard in Huntersville, April 13, 2018

I was kept up-to-date on a regular bases. I didn’t have to worry about what was going on. Mr. Hunt was very consistent.” Renee’ in Charlotte, 3/28/18
Thousands of workers across the United States are injured every day in workplace accidents. When people are hurt on the job, they don’t always know what steps they need to take to protect themselves. Being unable to work can be as difficult as the injury itself, because people take pride in their work and identify with it in some way. They also take pride in themselves and their ability to make a living and provide for their families. A workplace injury can take that source of pride away. Sometimes employees decide not to pursue a workers’ compensation claim fearing they may be demoted or lose their job. Or, they wait until after the deadline to file a workers’ compensation claim and miss-out on receiving necessary medical treatment and compensation (money) for permanent or partial disabilities brought on by workplace injuries. At the Ramsay Law Firm, PA, we take the time to teach our clients about their legal rights by guiding them through the entire workers’ compensation process.

North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Overview
Compensation for Workplace Injuries in North Carolina
Many employed Americans work in dangerous occupations and face the risk of on-the-job injury on an almost daily basis. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other federal and state agencies provide safety rules and regulations to promote workplace safety, employees can still suffer serious workplace injuries or occupational illnesses. When an employee is injured on-the-job, the process for compensating injury victims is apples-to-oranges when compared with getting compensation for non-work related injuries.

What to Do When Your Workers’ Comp Claim is Denied
What to do if Your Workers’ Compensation Claim was Denied
Most people don’t realize that when it comes to workers’ compensation, it’s not enough to prove you were hurt on the job. You have to show that you suffered an accidental injury — meaning that something unexpected or unusual happened at the time you were hurt — or a back injury caused by a specific traumatic event or that you suffer from an occupational disease.
It’s the accidental injury requirement that often causes the most trouble for injured workers. Sometimes people make the mistake of telling the insurance adjuster or the company doctor that nothing unusual was happening when the injury occurred. This can be a critical error. It may result in your workers’ comp claim being denied. Don’t give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster until you talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. The Ramsay Law Firm in Charlotte helps injured workers in North Carolina avoid costly mistakes. What to Do When Your Workers’ Comp Claim is Denied

Obtaining Charlotte Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Injured Workers
No matter how you were hurt, the hard-hitting North Carolina injury attorneys at the Ramsay Law Firm, PA, can help you get back your life just as they have helped over 1,000 other injured victims. We guide injured workers through the legal process, and make sure you avoid insurance traps along the way. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance normally covers workplace injuries. These insurance companies often work hand-in-hand with medical professionals who they hire to downplay the serious nature of an employee’s injuries.
The harsh reality is that insurance companies care much more about their corporate bottom-line than they care about injured workers, which is why it is necessary to work with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who does care about you and your rights. The Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys at the Ramsay Law Firm, PA not only look out for your best-interests, but also take the steps necessary to fully protect your rights and well-being.
Pursuing a Personal Injury Lawsuit to Supplement Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Mecklenburg County
In addition to bringing you the benefits you deserve under the workers’ compensation system, our lawyers help you identify who, other than your employer, is responsible for your workplace injuries. For example, if a subcontractor’s actions caused you to be hurt, then the company responsible for that subcontractor can be sued for personal injury. Since workers’ compensation is usually the only way to make an employer pay when a worker is injured on-the-job, our attorneys always look at other businesses, contractors, or agents who may also be responsible for you being injured on-the-job. At the Ramsay Law Firm, PA, we leave no stone unturned in in bringing you the full compensation you deserve.
