The Workers’ Compensation Laws in North Carolina help employees who are injured on the job or suffer job-related illnesses. Work Comp insurance often covers medical treatment, including emergency rooms costs, physical therapy, and medications. It also replaces lost wages and compensates employees for permanent injuries resulting from workplace accidents.
The Work Comp laws in NC are set forth within Chapter 97, Article 1 of the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. If you have been injured at work, the Work Comp Act may apply (cover your injury) even if your employer says otherwise.
