Friday Thought of The Day

August 14 , 2015

Did you know that, unlike a personal injury lawsuit, you don’t have to prove that your employer’s negligence caused your injuries in order to collect workers’ compensation benefits?

N.C. workers’ compensation laws provide a “no-fault” system geared toward protecting both employers and employees when workplace injuries happen. If you are injured on-the-job, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim even if you caused the accident… or are responsible for the injury. The workers’ compensation system was created as a benefit to help employees who are injured on-the-job get medical care and treatment, as well as disability payments for lost wages. The benefit also pays you a lump sum if a medical report shows you have a permanent injury. Workers’ compensation laws have “caps,” which limit the amount of money that can be awarded and, also unlike a personal injury lawsuit, you can’t receive money for pain and suffering.
