North Carolina Workers' Compensation and Work Injury Attorney
I was born in Hickory and except for a tour in the Navy, law school and a few years working in Charlotte and outside Washington, D.C., I have lived here my entire life, so I know the people of this community. We are hardworking individuals who care about each other and want to do the right thing. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college, and I come from a family that knows the value of hard work. As a lawyer, I often see people who trust others to live by these values; even if someone's negligence caused their injury. Unfortunately, when you are trying to get fair compensation from an insurance company, you cannot trust it to follow the Golden Rule.
I am attorney Lyndon Helton. I spent the first years of my career as an insurance defense lawyer, so I know how insurance companies work. They are not interested in helping you recover they are interested in protecting their profits. You need someone who will look out for you and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Come to the Law Offices of Lyndon R. Helton, PLLC, for personal service and experienced injury representation. We will fight the insurance company so you have time, resourcesand energy to heal from your injury.
Personal injury and workers' compensation cases are taken on a contingency-fee basis. If we accept your case, there is no fee unless we recover damages for you. For a free consultation, please call 828-848-8776 or contact us online.
Protecting Injured Workers and Accident Victims
If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers' compensation. To make sure you get the benefits you need, contact an attorney. The workers' comp process is long and complex, and the insurance company will try to minimize the amount it pays out. Let us guide you through the paperwork, formsand hearings.
We also represent people injured in car accidents. Cases involving cell phone texting while driving are becoming very common and often cause catastrophic injuries. We will help you sort through the auto insurance issues with these accidents, as well as accidents with uninsured drivers and underinsured drivers.
In addition, we help people injured by unsafe property. This can include dog bites as well as owner or employee negligence.
