WORKERS' COMPENSATION

If you have been injured on the job, the laws regarding workers’ compensation may be complex and may lead to the loss of a claim for the injury if proper procedures are not followed. 

First, the employee's claim must be filed with the North Carolina Industrial Commission within two years after the date of the on the job injury.  Usually, the employee does this by filing a Form 18.

Second, your employer should pay your medical bills for treatment for the injuries suffered on the job.  In exchange, they can tell you what doctors to see.

Third, if you miss work for one week, the employer must then begin to pay you two-thirds (2/3) of your average weekly wages for each week thereafter, while you are out of work. Once you are out for twenty-one (21) days, the employer must then pay you two-thirds (2/3) of your average weekly wage they never paid you for the first week you missed (you don’t get paid temporary total disability benefits if you miss less than one week).
 
Fourth, the case may settle at mediation or tried at a hearing. A clincher (one time lump sum settlement) will end the claim.  If no clincher/settlement, the employer must pay for all approved medicals ongoing or until more than two years has run from the last related medical treatment.

Fifth, you are also entitled for certain travel expense reimbursement and prescription reimbursement.

This is not intended to be, nor is it, legal advice.  Do not rely on this information. If you were injured on the job, give us a call.  We will be happy to set an appointment to discuss your issues in person.

 

We can help.
