    CALCULATING WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS:
    If you are an injured worker, you might be entitled to different types of benefits depending on your medical status. It is beneficial to have an experienced attorney working with you to obtain all the benefits you are entitled to receive by law. TTD - Temporary Total Disability
    If as result of your work injury, your doctor has taken you out of work for more than seven days, you are entitled to weekly TTD benefits. Compensation rate is based on your average weekly wages. You should receive 2/3 of your gross average weekly wages at the time of your work injury. TTD benefits should continue as long as your doctor keeps you out of work as a result of your work injury.
    If due to your medical status you need to remain out of work for more than 21 days, the carrier will be responsible to issue retroactive TTD benefits for the first seven days you were disabled. These 21 disability days do not have to be consecutive but you will need to have a doctor’s note stating that you were unable to work as result of your work injury.  TPD - Temporary Partial Disability
    You might be entitled to receive TPD benefits if you are released by your doctor to return to work, and find yourself unable to earn as much money as you earned prior to the accident because of your medical condition. If this happens, then you could receive weekly benefits that will compensate the difference on your wages. The amount would be 2/3 of the difference between your average weekly wages pre-work injury and your average weekly wages post-injury. The law indicates that you can receive TPD benefits for 500 weeks following the date of your work-related injury or occupational disease. The TPD benefits will be accumulative in the number of weeks paid and will be deducted from your $500 week maximum. PTD - Permanent Total Disability
    You are entitled to PTD benefits if you have sustained a work injury that has caused permanent disability that will prevent you from working at all. In this situation, you would be entitled to receive weekly PTD benefits based on 2/3 of your average weekly wages at the time of the work injury or occupational disease for the rest of your life. PPD - Permanent Partial Disability
    Your treating physician will determine if you have a permanent impairment resulting from your work injury and if so, you will be entitled to monetary compensation based on the percentage of disability to the body part you injured in the work accident. The North Carolina Industrial Commission has a formula that is used to determine the amount of your compensation, it is calculated by multiplying the percentage of disability assigned by your doctor by the number of weeks of compensation allowed for that body part under North Carolina law. For a free consultation regarding workers compensation benefits call us at 336-609-3400.

    WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET HURT ON THE JOB: 1. OBTAIN MEDICAL TREATMENT.
    Your employer may refer you to a doctor or clinic if they do not have an on-site medical provider. If you do not receive instructions as of where to go, then obtain medical care appropriate to your medical needs on your own. You can determine the urgency of your medical condition and decide if you can wait to go to your family doctor or if your condition is urgent then go to a hospital emergency room. 2. INFORM THE MEDICAL PROVIDER.
    You need to inform the doctor that you got hurt on the job, describe the mechanism of your accident/injury and provide them with your employer’s information.  3. REPORT YOUR INJURY TO YOUR EMPLOYER.
    As soon as you can, you must inform your employer, crew supervisor, manager, that you got hurt on the job. If as result of your injury you are unable to speak personally with your employer then you need to have a person you trust including the doctor’s office, report the injury to your employer. 4. SEEK LEGAL HELP – CONTACT AN ATTORNEY.
    You need to file a Form 18 with the North Carolina Industrial Commission. It is also possible that the workers compensation carrier might want to take your recorded statement of the facts surrounding your injury, accident. It is important that you have legal representation before you communicate with the carrier.

    FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN: The proper use of seat belts, as opposed to simply using a seat belt at all is imperative.
    For children, if the seat belt is not correctly fastened across the body, or the child does not have an appropriate car seat or booster seat, or allowing the child to seat in the front seat, the result can be deadly.
    The records show that 43 percent of children who died in car crashes were improperly restrained.
    *************
    PARA LA SEGURIDAD DE NUESTROS NIÑOS, el uso adecuado de los cinturones de seguridad, en lugar de simplemente usar un cinturón de seguridad es absolutamente imprescindible.
    Para los niños, si el cinturón de seguridad no está bien sujeto a través del cuerpo, o si el niño no tiene un asiento para automóvil o un asiento de seguridad apropiado, o permitir que el niño se asiente en el asiento delantero, el resultado puede ser mortal.
    Los registros muestran que el 43 por ciento de los niños que murieron en accidentes de tránsito fueron indebidamente restringidos. For more information: http://www.npr.org/s...properly-restrai
