Things to Know About Your Work Injury Claim
In North Carolina, there are a few important things to know if you’ve been injured at work and are considering pursuing a workers’ compensation claim:
- If you don’t provide prompt appropriate written notice of your injury, you can lose your right to benefits.
- Fault is usually not an issue — just being hurt by accident or suffering an occupational disease at work entitles you to rights under the law.
- Receiving benefits means that not only does workers’ compensation pay for your medical bills, it also pays for lost wages, mileage, and sometimes other benefits such as re-education. Sometimes these benefits are for your lifetime.

How does workers’ compensation work in North Carolina?
North Carolina law requires most employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance provides benefits to workers who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses.
An injury or illness is covered under workers’ compensation insurance if it took place in the “course and scope” of your employment.
Furthermore, although hard to define, you may be covered for an injury that occurs while you are on break or even just on the employer’s premises.
It doesn’t matter what occupation or industry you work in, if you’ve been injured while at work, you may have a claim for compensation.
