The experience you need. The attention you deserve.

Certified by North Carolina State Bar as Specialist in NC Workers’ Compensation Law since 2003

Have you suffered a workplace injury?

The Law Office of John A. Hedrick, PLLC reminds you that North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Law is a very complex area of law. Workers injured on the job face complex regulations as well as employers and insurance companies working against them. Injured employees frequently have trouble obtaining medical treatment and suffer a loss of income. Employers and their insurance companies are often unsympathetic and unresponsive. For the injured employee, it may seem that no one is on their side.

Attorney John A. Hedrick has focused his legal career exclusively on North Carolina workers’ compensation law since 1994. From 1994 to 2000, Mr. Hedrick served as a Deputy Commissioner of the North Carolina Industrial Commission (like a judge for workers’ compensation cases). In 2000, Mr. Hedrick began representing injured employees in Raleigh and throughout the state of North Carolina.

The North Carolina State Bar certified Attorney John A. Hedrick as a Specialist in North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Law in 2003. He was recertified in 2008 and 2013. In 2002, John A. Hedrick received an AV, Preeminent Rating, the highest peer review rating by Martindale-Hubbell.
