Depending on your disability classification, you may elect to receive weekly benefit payments and/or a lump sum payment for your impairment. If you are receiving weekly disability benefits and are seeking an attorney to represent you with respect to your workers’ compensation claim, you should always ask how the attorney’s fees will be paid when you receive your benefits. Some attorneys request to obtain every fourth check of their clients’ weekly benefit payments, even if their client is already receiving disability benefits before they walk in the attorney’s door.
At Brown, Moore & Associates, PLLC, we understand how essential weekly payments are for our clients who are seeking to make ends meet while being out of work.

This makes a substantial difference for our clients in meeting their financial obligations when they are otherwise without wages.
For more than 50 combined years, our firm’s Charlotte disability benefits attorneys have focused on advising and educating clients. We focus on helping clients make informed decisions in an effort to maximize their potential to recover benefits.
