What is a Workers Compensation claim?
A workers’ compensation personal injury claim in North Carolina is a legal request for benefits by an employee who has been injured or become ill due to their job. In such a claim, the injured worker seeks compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs resulting from the work-related injury or illness. Unlike traditional personal injury claims, workers’ compensation claims in North Carolina do not require proving fault; instead, the focus is on getting financial assistance and support for the injured employee. Employers are typically required to have workers’ compensation insurance to cover these situations.
