About Us

“The experience you need.  The attention you deserve.”

Since 1994, John A. Hedrick has devoted his legal career to workers’ compensation law.  From 1994 through 2000, Mr. Hedrick served as a Deputy Commissioner (like a judge) for the North Carolina Industrial Commission, deciding contested workmen’s compensation claims.

In 2000, Mr. Hedrick entered private practice and began representing employees who were injured on the job.  Mr. Hedrick was an associate attorney with the Law Office of Robin E. Hudson until January 2001 when he became a partner in Scudder & Hedrick, PLLC.  Mr. Hedrick founded the Law Office of John A. Hedrick in May 2017.  In 2003, the North Carolina State Bar certified Mr. Hedrick as a specialist in North Carolina workers’ compensation law.  The North Carolina State Bar recertified Mr. Hedrick as a specialist in 2008 and 2013.

The Law Office of John A. Hedrick, PLLC represents injured workers throughout North Carolina from our Raleigh office. Mr. Hedrick practices workers’ compensation law exclusively and limits his practice to representing injured workers.  He does not, and never has represented employers or insurance companies.  Mr. Hedrick represents injured employees in every possible type of workers’ compensation claim, involving work injuries of every kind.  

Personalized Representation
