One in five workers will suffer a serious injury or illness that will disable them for a year or more. While North Carolina has fought to reduce the number of workers injured on the job, the tragic fact is that hardworking Americans are still frequently injured on the job, making it difficult to support their families.

The North Carolina workers’ compensation system exists to provide injured workers with the protection they need following their workplace injuries. It provides medical coverage to employees who have been injured through the course of their employment, and provides American workers with a vital safety net. Virtually all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation for your injuries.

What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?

Workers’ compensation is a system in which your employer provides medical coverage in exchange for protection from lawsuits if you suffer an injury at work. But in order to earn this protection, your employer has to make good on his or her promise. Many workers don’t understand how much coverage workers’ compensation provides, putting them at a disadvantage should a tragic accident occur. If you’ve been injured on the job, your employer may owe you:

  • Medical expenses
  • Travel costs to medical appointments
  • Lost wages
