In North Carolina, as elsewhere, when an employee gets hurt while on the job, they are entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim. An employee may file a claim to obtain benefits if they suffer an on-the-job injury. The North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) administers workers’ compensation. Once you file a claim, the insurance company and the employer review it to make a determination. Sometimes, a workers’ compensation claim is denied. When that happens, you could be left with large medical bills and unpaid time off from work.
