Preserve the Evidence in Personal Injury Cases with a Preservation Letter

When a person is injured in an accident, it is important that they first seek medical care. Once their injury is stabilized however, it is crucial that the injured person preserve evidence relating to their accident. Because persons who cause accidents very often lie about what happened, and it can take months or even years for a personal injury case to get to court, it is important that injured persons have the evidence they need to when their case. A preservation letter can help with that evidence.

Worker's Compensation Laws Limited in Protecting Injured Workers

NC's worker's compensation laws are designed to provide medical care necessary to help injured workers heal and return to work. The law requires employers to pay for this medical care when one of their employees is injured on the job. Unfortunately, a 2014 change to the workers compensation rules has allowed less ethical employers to choose profits over the health of injured workers. The N.C. Court of Appeals has recently ruled that when an employer fails to provide health care and profits by doing so, the courts are limited to stop the practice.
