Does it Matter Who Was At Fault for My North Carolina Workplace Injury?

November 15 , 2021

At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., workers’ compensation law firm founder and managing attorney, Martha Ramsay, has been giving a voice to the injured for more than 25 years.

North Carolina is a no-fault workers’ compensation state, which means if you were hurt at work, you are probably entitled to pursue workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries regardless of who caused the accident — although there are disqualifying factors that apply in some cases.

With very few exceptions, all businesses within the Tar Heel State that employ three or more employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance, or qualify as self-insured employers as required by the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act.

As a Board-Certified Workers’ Compensation Attorney in North Carolina, Martha focuses on providing our clients with their complete legal options and rights to pursue their employer’s workers’ compensation coverage for the benefits they need to put their lives back together after suffering an injury in the workplace.

Why Were My Benefits Denied When North Carolina is a No-Fault Workers’ Compensation State?

While North Carolina is a no-fault workers’ compensation state, the benefits provided to employees usually come directly from their employer’s insurance provider, not the employer itself.

Insurance companies will do everything they can to delay, undervalue, or deny workers’ compensation claims, which places employees in a very difficult position.

With mounting medical bills and a lack of income, workers’ compensation denials can change each of our clients’ lives while hindering their ability to heal.

Common reasons for workers’ compensation denials in North Carolina may include:

  • The employer will not admit that the injury occurred during a work-related activity.
  • The insurance company does not believe the employee was injured.
  • The injury occurred in a way that does not comply with the obligation to show that you were injured by accident, by a specific traumatic incident, or an occupational disease.
