Slipping and injuring yourself at work can not only be embarrassing but also a serious incident if your injury requires medical attention. Luckily, workers’ compensation covers damage for injuries such as slip-and-falls at work. Employers are required to carry workers’ comp insurance for instances like this. North Carolina is a “no fault” state when it comes to workers’ compensation. This means that you may be eligible for benefits regardless of the cause of the accident. In other words, you should not hesitate to ask a lawyer about filing a claim, even if you believe you held fault in what happened.
What Can You Recover?
Filing for workers’ compensation is important both in the short term and long term. Benefits can cover your medical costs during immediate recovery, as well as compensation for long-term costs if your injury is permanent. You can also receive a portion of your usual wages for the time you cannot work due to an injury.
