Workers’ Compensation- How Does it Work?
Just because you are hurt at work does not mean you have a workers’ compensation claim. North Carolina requires an injury by accident arising out of the course and scope or employment in order to be a compensable claim. The term “injury by accident” has been defined by our courts as a slip, trip or fall. Alternatively, it can be an untoward event that does not fall within the parameters of the worker’s normal job duties.
