If you are a worker or employee in North Carolina, you may be eligible to obtain workers comp benefits if you sustain injuries or are hurt while performing work that is within the scope of your employment. This form of compensation aims to protect injured workers such as yourself, and will help you recover so you can safely return to work.
When it comes to NC workers compensation benefits, fault is not generally considered a factor. In order to receive this benefit, however, it is essential that the injury must be a job-related one. Workmans compensation claims can result from a number of different scenarios, such as slip and fall accidents or construction site accidents. Unfortunately, often these lead to injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and more.
Workers comp offers the employee the primary benefit of medical treatment for the injury sustained and reimbursement for lost wages. Costs that fall under medical care are physical therapy, consultations, surgical services, dental services, nursing care, and prescribed medications.
