Suffering An Injury While On The Job
When you have been hurt in a workplace accident, you want an experienced lawyer to help you pursue all the benefits to which you are entitled. You may not be able to work for a long time, if ever. You may need considerable medical care, including physical therapy or rehabilitation. You want an attorney who understands the workers’ compensation system and has successfully protected the rights of other injured workers in the past.
Attorney Lyndon R. Helton brings valuable and practical experience to Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, as well as to residents throughout Western North Carolina who have been hurt on the job. He has spent more than 20 years working as an attorney. Before dedicating his practice to representing injured individuals, he spent time as an insurance defense lawyer where he learned the tactics insurance companies use to try to minimize or deny claims.
Mr. Helton now uses his knowledge and more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer to protect the rights of injured people and fight against aggressive insurance companies that want nothing more than to profit at the expense of working people.
