What North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Benefits Am I Entitled To?

October 29 , 2023

At the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys know North Carolina workers are entitled to benefits after suffering a work-related injury or illness.

The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act outlines the benefits workers are entitled to for their injuries.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you have a workers’ compensation claim, you’re entitled to benefits for three things:

  1. Medical treatment;
  2. Payment for time out of work;
  3. Payment for any permanent injury that you sustain.

Workers’ compensation does not pay for:

  • General pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish.
  • Chronic pain, whether due to a workplace injury or another cause that can significantly reduce your ability to enjoy life’s activities.
  • Surviving a catastrophic event, like a major accident, that results in a significant loss of enjoyment of life due to the trauma and disruption caused by the event.
  • Injuries that prevent you from participating in non-work-related activities, like hobbies or sports, that impact your personal enjoyment of life.
  • Household services — like lawn care or other maintenance requirements— if the injured worker can no longer perform these duties and must hire an outside service.
  • Family member’s loss of companionship or enjoyment of life resulting from the injured worker’s injuries.

Workers’ compensation does not pay for many things we know are present in every workers’ compensation case. That’s why I think it’s important that we maximize your recovery for the benefits that you are entitled to.
