North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Protecting your rights. Preserving your future.

If you’ve been hurt at work and you want to pursue workers’ compensation, you need legal representation. Why? Because you need someone to protect your rights.

If you have been injured on the job, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. At Collier Law, we understand the hardships that injured workers face, and we work tirelessly to obtain full compensation for our clients who have suffered a serious work-related injury.

Benefits you are entitled to receive for a workplace injury include compensation for medical treatment, lost wages, and disability – both temporary and permanent. It is important to know that the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim can be both complex and time-consuming, and a positive outcome may hinge on the smallest details. Unfortunately, employers, insurance companies, and their lawyers will often do everything they can to avoid compensating you the full amount you deserve. They may deny your workers’ compensation claim, withhold benefits, or decline authorization for medical treatment. In such circumstances, it is imperative to consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney with a solid knowledge of North Carolina law.

The Collier Law Approach

Your best interests are our only interest

When you become a client at Collier Law, you’re more than just a case number. We’re a small, specialty firm, so you immediately become an integral part of our business. That’s why we take the time to get to know you, the details of your case, and the obstacles you’re trying to overcome. 

We get to know you, your family, how you like your coffee, and what you’re looking forward to most when your case is resolved. How else can we deliver the personalized legal representation that suits you best? 

We’re not a big firm getting paid by the hour. We only get paid when you do, so we’ve got to earn it every time. Our small size makes us better able to serve you and your unique circumstances in a way that other firms can’t or won’t. When you’re a client at Collier Law, you win well before your case is resolved.


The Lawyer for Injured Workers

Trey Collier, founder of Collier Law, began his career as a defense attorney representing North Carolina employers and insurance companies. Although he quickly discovered he would rather fight for injured workers, his experience representing the other side gives him unique insight into workers’ compensation law. He understands how employers and insurance companies approach a case, and uses this knowledge to negotiate the financial compensation his clients deserve.

As a North Carolina native, Trey has had the distinction of being a certified workers’ compensation law specialist since 2016 by the North Carolina State Bar Association. This specialization has been earned by fewer than 200 lawyers statewide, and requires demonstrated special knowledge, proficiency, and skill in workers’ compensation law, with a minimum of five years of practice. Furthermore, specialists must complete a certain number of hours in continuing legal education and practice of the specialty, pass a written examination, and be favorably peer-reviewed by six other attorneys or judges. In addition, Trey is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a select group of attorneys who have recovered a settlement or judgment over one million dollars.

At Collier Law, we are passionate about getting justice for our clients. We will gladly provide you with a free consultation on your workers’ compensation case and give you straightforward, professional feedback. In addition to English, we are also able to provide legal service in fully proficient Spanish and French, as well as working proficiency in Portuguese, Italian, and German.

An Experienced Workers' Compensation Attorney with Proven Results

Workplace accidents can have devastating effects on your life and future. If you’ve suffered a serious work-related injury, you owe it to yourself and your family to consult with an experienced and skilled workers’ compensation attorney. There is simply too much at stake to risk being taken advantage of by an employer or insurance company whose priority is their own self-interest. You deserve to be fairly compensated for your workplace injuries, and to have a future in which you are able to provide for your family.

At Collier Law, your physical wellbeing, recovery, and future are our number one concern. We will fight to get you justice in your workers’ compensation case, and we have the accomplished track record to prove it: our founder, Trey Collier, is a member of the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum, comprised solely of attorneys who have won million dollar and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.

The attorney-client relationship is personal to us. We are in the business of protecting your best interests, and we won’t back down. Contact us today for a free consultation, and let us be in your corner.

What Our Clients Say

We love hearing feedback from our clients. Read our reviews from the many clients we’ve helped recover compensation.

I Always Felt Respected
I would highly recommend Collier Law when dealing with workers’ compensation cases. I always felt respected and tended to. Every effort was made to move things along as quickly as was feasible (workers compensation cases do not usually move along very quickly)!
Professional and Relatable
Trey was very relatable and I felt comfortable speaking with him. He is professional but comes across also as very human. He was also honest and presented realistic expectations. I enjoyed my experience with having Trey represent me.
Always Professional
I was treated with respect and was always kept well informed of any changes or requests in regards to my case. The communication between myself and Shelley was always professional. She was always professional and highly intelligent. Very knowledgeable regarding my questions or concerns about my case. She was actually fun to talk to, had a nice sense of humor yet still remained a professional. She is a real gem. (you are lucky Trey)!
You Were Patient
I would definitely recommend your law firm. You were patient with me. And your expertise was abundant and customer service and attention to detail was awesome.
