Recent decades have seen great strides in improving workplace safety for all employees. North Carolina in particular has decreased our workplace injury rates recently, one of only 12 states to do so in 2007. Of course, this news is cold comfort to someone who has received a severe injury on the job.
North Carolina’s workers’ compensation program is based on the belief that employees should be able to receive full medical treatment for their injuries. As a result, nearly all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you have received a workplace injury, you may be entitled to coverage for your medical bills.
