When you go to work for the day, you do not expect to get injured while performing your job-related duties. However, this is not always the case. Accidents happen all the time while individuals are in their workplace, and the injuries resulting from these consequences can range from minor to fatal.
In North Carolina, workers’ compensation claims are controlled by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act which sets forth the requirements for having a compensable claim and provides benefits the injured employee is entitled to.
