Just like many affected by a workers comp injury, I really had no idea where to start. I am a seasoned law enforcement officer and I always took pride in the fact that I was very knowledgeable when it came to the law and NC General statutes. I did as much research as I could and I pretty much had a pretty good idea of how the process should go. I knew more than the average person going in, yet I knew right off the bat that I needed a good, experienced attorney. I had the opportunity to speak with Bob after communicating with him some through an online forum. Bob spent almost two hours one night on the phone with me giving me an idea of how the process would go and he made sure I knew which forms needed to be completed. Even though I already had done a lot of leg work myself, I knew from the conversation that he was willing to go the extra mile and would be willing to fight for me. I lost my job due to my injury and it was devastating. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to keep my wits and stay focused on the details and be able to battle the WC alone. Bob was on the ball and headed off a potential catastrophe when the WC tried to screw me over and have my rating changed in order to cut off my checks. In the end I was satisfied with settlement. It wasn't all I wanted, but Bob helped me understand the good and bad of continuing my fight and was willing to fight it as far as necessary. I have dealt with attorneys my entire career and I feel I should tell anybody that is hiring a lawyer to realize how busy they are and not to set your expectations too high when it comes to communication and having your calls returned right away. Having said that, Bob gave me more time than I expected, especially when it was necessary and there were issues to address. I would recommend Bob in a heartbeat and I have actually referred three different people to his office during the process. Fighting a WC insurance company is a giant headache and even worse when dealing with the emotional strain of losing your job or having physical pain. Don't try itty yourself and do yourself a favor by calling Bob and discuss your case with him.
For the ones of use that felt like no-one cared,or has been in a situation where you explain yourself as best you know how,to the powers that be in the legal system arena called workman comp lawyers(only to be told over and over again why you couldn't win or shouldn't go any further)the sun has risen and the clouds have gone away.Enter,MR. Bob Bollinger.A very laid back gentleman that actually listened to every word i told him.He never questioned me in a negative manner,and made me feel like help was there and i had just FOUND it.Point is ,Bob took my case(from another lawyer,that spent all his time telling me how i could not win or should not even try)We went to court and Bob won my case,and i'am sure plenty before me,after watching him work.He's committed to you and was always straight up with me,not once ever saying anything about money until all was said and done.He is a fair and very competent lawyer at the top of his field.I have never once asked for his help that he did not come to my aid.Do yourself a favor,don't hire a room full of atta-boys,get someone like Mr. Bollinger to help you.YOU WON'T BE SORRY.He will fight for you
If I lived in Charlotte or near by I would for sure hire him. Very caring gentleman. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and advice.
I would highly recommend Mr. Bollinger. Bobby and Janice helped me complete my case which had been ongoing since 1992. He is an excellent lawyer and keeps you informed and updated each step of the way. Mr. Bollinger exceeded all my expectations on the settlement of my case.
Mr. Bollinger got the Workers Compensation Insurance Company to pay after being denied from an on the job injury. Would highly recommend .
Mr. Bollinger was a great help to me during my Workmens Compensation mediation. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me. I didn't feel like a number, he treated me with utmost respect and was able to get me what I needed. I would highly reccommend him to anyone with a work sustained injury.
My case is still in litigation and Mr. Bollinger has worked arduously on it for almost a year and a half. It is a very difficult case that most lawyers would refuse to handle. In fact, several in NC and in Maryland adamantly declined to represent me. I fell and sustained a serious injury to my wrist, requiring surgery, while working out of state. I didn't know for sure how the fall happened. This gave the insurance company every opportunity to deny the claim and to conjure up any numbers of reasons for the fall that did not involve my job. Mr. Bollinger took the case against all odds and has dealt with the insurance company with dogged perseverance. In addition, he's been faced with an even more formidable problem - his own client. A single woman living alone for years, I must handle every aspect of my life aggressively and have thus tried to run my own work comp case. Despite my continued intrusions into the case, only a few of which were helpful, he's been very tactful and tolerant and has been unusually professional in handling this aspect of the case. I hear only good things about him and I am convinced he is very well versed in work comp law. He answers emails and calls very quickly, sometimes within minutes, and takes all the time his clients need. His paralegal has spent quite a bit of her time explaining in detail the many questions I've asked. I highly recommend Bob Bollinger for people with unusual and/or very complex cases. I feel confident that in the end we will prevail.
Mr Bollinger has represented me twice,both times were on work releated disease,the hardest of all workers comp cases to win.He won,both times,hands down.He is relentless,dogged and consistent in his pursuit of justice for his clients.His staff is the same,and they have been with him for decades.If you have a workers comp problem,or questions about whether or not you have a claim over something that your company tells you is not covered by comp...I urge you in the strongest possible terms to contact Mr Bollinger's firm.They will answer all your questions,and give you the facts on the law,and they will allow you to make the final decesion.They are some of the easiest people to work with I have ever encountered in the legal field.
From the first phone conversation, Mr. Bob Bollinger was confident. He knows the law in Charlotte North Carolina, and stated he could win my case. And he did.
His office let me know what to exspect and how long it would take for a decision by the court. He is a polite Southern gentleman, but in court he is unbeatable. I recommend Mr. Bob Bollinger to anyone.
Thank You Mr. Bob Bollinger!

I feel so lucky and grateful to have had Mr. Bollinger represent me in my workers compensation case. I am from New England and traveled to North Carolina to fill a summer position. Within a few weeks of taking the job, I took a fall and badly injured my leg. I required major reconstructive surgery. The workers comp carrier was shady: first telling me my claim was approved and then later denying it when it became too expensive.
I was terrified because I was left with no insurance and a bum leg resulting in no work capacity. I contacted Mr. Bollinger the same day my case was denied and he got back to me in a matter of hours. I hadn't even hired him yet and there he was answering my questions, explaining my rights, and telling me what any good lawyer would do if I chose to appeal. Obviously I hired him and within a short period of time, he took my case (which was a mess) and turned it around. I am incredibly pleased with the outcome. He really was and is a Godsend.
Mr. Bollinger has a brilliant legal mind, strong ethics, and he genuinely cares about his clients. It also doesn't hurt that he's clearly respected within the legal community and perhaps even a little feared. I recommend him without any reservations.
