Workers’ Comp Covers On-The-Job Injuries
When you go to work for the day, you probably do not expect to get injured on the job. However, accidents happen all the time in the workplace, especially in dangerous industries such as construction.
Workplace injuries can range from minor to fatal. In North Carolina, workers’ compensation claims are controlled by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, which sets forth the requirements for having a compensable claim and also provides the benefits to which injured employees are entitled.
In order for a workers’ compensation claim to be filed, the employee must be injured by an accident, specific traumatic incident or suffer from an occupational disease. The injury or occupational disease must arise out of, and occur in, the course of the employment.
