Trusted Representation for Worker's Compensation Cases

When an employee is injured, he or she must file a Form 18 and serve it on the employer, the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier, and the North Carolina Industrial Commission, within 30 days of the accident. If the insurance company denies the claim, the employee must then file a Form 33 in order to have a hearing with an Industrial Commission Deputy Commissioner to pursue benefits.

Types of injuries covered by workers’ compensation may include:

Injuries caused by defective machinery.

Preexisting conditions that the workplace aggravates or accelerates.

Neck and back injuries, even if they occur while you are doing your normal job

This may also include:

Occupational diseases caused by repetitive motion or exposure to toxins at work.

Injuries resulting from excessive physical or mental strain brought on by increased work-related stress or activities.

In North Carolina, employers with more than three employees must have workers’ compensation insurance. If an injured employee’s claim is accepted, the insurance company may be obligated to pay for medical expenses. In addition, the insurance company may have to pay compensation for permanent disability, vocational rehabilitation, and lost wages.

Types of worker's compensation claim include:

  • Occupational Illness or Injuries
  • Injuries On The Job
  • Back Injuries
