An upset bid period is a time period that exists after a foreclosure sale. In North Carolina, after the sale of a property in a foreclosure there are ten (10) days for another party to offer a higher bid on the property or for the owner of the property to file a bankruptcy to stop the foreclosure.
The decision to hire an attorney is often based on the severity of the worker’s injury. If the injury is limited to a sprained ankle or broken wrist that is expected to heal with limited future medical treatment, the employee may choose not to hire an attorney to represent him in the workers’ compensation claim. However, employees that suffer back injuries, head injuries or traumatic injuries to a limb will usually benefit from hiring an attorney to assist with the workers’ compensation case.
The amount of a workers’ compensation settlement may vary greatly depending on the case. The settlement is limited by North Carolina law and depends on the severity of the injury and the body part(s) injured in the accident.
When you are involved in an accident that occurs on the job, there are a number of necessary worker’s compensation forms that need to be completed and then submitted to the appropriate office. One of these forms is called Form 30D.
