Workers’ Compensation Coverage
Workers are protected under the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act of 1929, which provides assistance to employees who suffered injuries due to workplace accidents. It requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance that will cover the medical costs of workplace injuries. Employers must carry this insurance if they are:
- Sawmills and logging companies with 10 or more employees
- Agricultural companies with 10 or more employees
- Any company which employs 10 or more full-time domestic employees
- Any other business employing at least 3 employees
Unfortunately, companies do not always provide injured employees with the compensation they need and deserve. If you are having trouble securing compensation from your workers’ comp claim, we can help you fight for the assistance you deserve.
