At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., our experienced Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys know that our clients have a lot of questions when it comes to their work injuries and how they can pursue the benefits they are entitled to.
One of the most common questions we receive is, what is the North Carolina Industrial Commission and what do they have to do with my workers’ compensation claim?
Here is what you need to know about the NCIC.
What Does the North Carolina Industrial Commission Do?
Our Mecklenburg County workers’ compensation attorneys work directly for our North Carolina clients after they have been hurt at work. That includes presenting their cases to the Commission.
The North Carolina Industrial Commission was created by the state’s General Assembly in 1929 to administer the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act.
In short, the Commission is essentially the court system for North Carolina workers’ compensation claims.
There are multiple departments at the Commission that provide education and training to employers to reduce accident potential in the workplace, but their core obligations are to:
- Award benefits to injured workers
- Review medical bills in accordance with the NCIC Medical Fees Schedule
- Provide quick resolutions to disputed issues in an administrative forum
Our workers’ compensation law firm founder and managing attorney, Martha Ramsay, has been giving a voice to the injured for more than 25 years and can help you determine the benefits you are entitled to after suffering a workplace injury in North Carolina.
That includes disputing and appealing denied workers’ compensation claims in front of the Commission, so our clients can pursue the benefits they are entitled to under the law.
