Workers’ Comp Laws in North Carolina

In North Carolina, all employers who have more than 3 employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If they fail to do so, they may face fines, prison sentences, and other penalties. The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act applies to all businesses, including limited liability companies, partnerships, and corporations. The goal of the North Carolina workers’ compensation system is to help injured workers recover as quickly as possible.

You may be able to receive a settlement for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Disability

Workers' compensation for lost wages provides 66 2/3% of your average weekly wage. You also may be able to receive compensation for travel to and from doctor's appointments, if the round trip is 20 miles or more. When determining disability benefits, the North Carolina Industrial Commission will use the rating provided by your physician to determine the amount of disability you may be entitled to.

Steps to Take After a Workplace Accident

If you have been injured at work, it is important to notify your employer within 30 days. Your employer must then report the injury to the North Carolina Industrial Commission. If you wait too long and miss the deadline, your claim will likely be denied.

Common types of workplace injuries include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries

Workers’ comp benefits are not dependent on the fault or negligence of your employer. You will only have to show that your injuries occurred at work. Our firm has extensive experience representing clients who have suffered on-the-job injuries and illnesses.
