Injured employee may seek workers' compensation benefits

Danger can lurk behind any corner at work, particularly if people are employed in hazardous situations. However, seemingly safe work environments in North Carolina also can pose dangers. For instance, a worker may unexpectedly fall on the premises, or a random object could strike them accidentally. No matter who is at fault in such situations, whether it is the company or perhaps even the employee, workers' compensation benefits are designed to help an injured worker to be covered financially -- especially when he or she cannot work for a time.
