The Sumwalt Law Firm is located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and concentrates in workers’ compensation and related claims, such as personal injury litigation and Social Security disability. We carefully select who we represent in order to give each case the full attention it deserves. We represent people, not insurance companies.
Our cases have resulted in numerous decisions by the North Carolina appellate courts that have clarified—and sometimes even changed—the law. We encourage you to review the decisions on the Industrial Commissions website. Follow the instructions and search the NCIC Databases. Using the search term Sumwalt will help you find our clients cases. We also teach at legal seminars, write books and articles on workers’ compensation and related issues, and serve in organizations in order to promote our clients’ interests, enhance our profession, and serve the greater community. We are proud to be trial lawyers.
Most often, how you handle your workers’ compensation case will affect other benefits you can receive. These might include short- or long-term disability payments, Social Security disability or retirement, group health insurance coverage, union benefits under a Collective Bargaining Agreement, and Medicare. You should consider how your workers’ compensation case will affect these other benefits before making any important decisions. Our attorneys and staff are experienced in explaining all risks and benefits so that you can make a decision in the best interests for you and your family.
Choosing an attorney is an important decision. We encourage you to explore our website and contact us if you, your family, or your friends would like to find out more about our services. Thank you for your interest.
