“Do I qualify for workers’ compensation?”

In North Carolina, in MOST CASES you may qualify for workers’ comp benefits if:

  • You’ve been injured in an accident on the job (or at least while on your employer’s premises)
  • Your employer has three or more full-time employees

There are exceptions to these general rules, however. In North Carolina, for instance, agricultural companies with fewer than 10 full-time employees are not required to have workers’ compensation insurance.

A work injury lawyer serving Wilmington can help evaluate your claim and determine your eligibility.

“Do I really need a work injury lawyer?”

You aren’t legally required to hire a work injury attorney to help with your workers’ compensation claim. However, employers and their workers’ comp insurance carriers will often fight hard to avoid paying workers’ compensation claims.
