What does workers' compensation benefits cover?

It is not uncommon for a person who has been injured while on the job to have a lot of question about getting help and coverage from his or her employer. Most employers in North Carolina are required, by law, to provide workers' compensation benefits for when workplace injuries or deaths occur. However, many employees or their families may not be aware of how much these benefits actually cover.

Workers' compensation benefits do actually cover a wide variety of things. For those who have been injured these include medical expenses, prescription costs, rehabilitation treatments and payments for travel to and from medical appointments. Employees may also receive payments for lost wages or reductions in earnings due to disability or the inability to return to one's former position. For those who have lost loved ones due to workplace accidents, workers' compensation death benefits may be available.

Workers' compensation is in place to protect employees and keep them and/or their families afloat should anything happen while on the job.
