If you’ve been injured at work in North Carolina, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is there to provide benefits to help with your injury. Even if you may have contributed to the accident in some way, this insurance is designed to provide you compensation for medical expenses related to your injury until you can return to work.
Although you have 30 days in North Carolina to notify your employer after an injury, you should notify your supervisor as soon as possible to get the process started and prevent any unnecessary delays.
If you have been denied for a claim, or need help ensuring your claim is filed properly, you should consider hiring a workers’ comp attorney to help protect your rights. A North Carolina workers’ compensation attorney can help with your claim in order to prevent delays in benefits, or even a downright denial of benefits.
Your claim may denied for many reasons, including:
- A failure to fill out required paperwork
- Filing or notifying your employer after deadlines have passed
- A disagreement over whether the injury is work-related
- Filing a claim after leaving your job
