Gina E. Cammarano of Farah & Cammarano, P.A., and Valerie A. Johnson of Copeley Johnson & Groninger, PLLC, have just released North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Law: A Practical Guide to Success at Every Stage of a Claim, Second Edition.  Both Gina and Valerie are North Carolina State Bar board certified workers’ compensation specialists.   The book is available through LexisNexis here.

North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Law is a must have for anyone who practices workers’ compensation law in North Carolina.  This book does more than just just recite the law; it provides in depth analysis of common and uncommon NC workers’ compensation issues with practical advice from seasoned NC workers’ compensation lawyers.  The book runs over 700 pages and includes NC Industrial Commission forms as well as sample motions and orders.  I am pleased to have again authored the chapter on death claims. The table of contents is below.

I highly recommend this book to all NC workers’ compensation lawyers, as well to others who deal regularly with NC workers’ comp law.
