North Carolina has a different workers’ compensation system than other states. In NC, you only qualify for workers’ comp if you suffered an injury as an employee while performing your work duties. The accident must have been unexpected and unintended.
Some exceptions to this rule do exist, such as back injuries and certain occupational diseases. An experienced industrial accidents attorney from our team at Speaks Law Firm can review your case and advise whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation.
