What Type Of Workers' Compensation Is Available?

Workers' compensation is an essential form of social insurance. It operates by requiring that all businesses with more than two employees obtain valid policies to cover their workers. If you get hurt on the job while performing your duties, then this coverage can provide benefits to help you pay for your:

  • Medical, rehabilitation or therapy costs
  • Ongoing expenses associated with your permanent or temporary disability
  • Lost income
  • Vocational training to switch to a new profession if you can no longer fulfill your previous role

It's critical to remember that as a form of injury coverage, North Carolina workers' compensation doesn't just automatically kick in after you get hurt. As with other insurance programs, you have to file a claim — and this process includes quite a few steps. Even if you think you understand how the process works, talking to a lawyer can make it easier to navigate the process correctly so you can maximize your chances of receiving the full benefits to which you're entitled.
