Fayetteville Short-Term/Temporary Disability Lawyers
The majority of American families are heavily dependent upon the income that they draw from employment. Unfortunately, although people are reluctant to consider the possibility that they might suffer an injury or illness that would interfere with their occupational capacities, a significant portion of the working population will be forced to miss work for 6 months or more prior to retirement. Under North Carolina law, however, it may be possible to obtain disability benefits to help your family through the challenging and uncertain times that accompany disabling injury or illness.
The Fayetteville short-term disability lawyers of Scudder & Hedrick, PLLC., are dedicated to helping our clients obtain the benefits that they are rightfully due under the law. The process can be complicated and intimidating, and our aim is to ensure that your rights are adequately represented and not wrongfully denied. Contact us at 910-488-1600 if you have suffered a disabling injury or illness while on the job.
