NC Workers Compensation LawyerEmployees in North Carolina who have been injured during a workplace accident are eligible for Workers Compensation. Undocumented workers are also eligible for benefits. However, independent contractors are not eligible for workers compensation benefits. Unlike personal injury claims, the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) governs injured workers comp claims in NC.
In NC, businesses that employee three or more employees must carry workers comp insurance. Unfortunately, employers still try to classify employees as independent contractors in order to avoid paying for benefits or injury claims. Hiring a Workers Compensation Attorney may be your only recourse for obtaining benefits if your employee denies that you are an employee.
