The North Carolina Industrial Commission handles back injuries differently than other types of repetitive stress injuries suffered on the job. In order to successfully claim North Carolina workers’ compensation benefits, the injured worker must demonstrate that the back injury was a direct result of a “specific traumatic incident.” This has been defined as the sudden onset of pain while performing normal work duties but excluding the slow onset of pain over months or years.If you injured your back on the job in North Carolina, talk to an attorney at Ganly & Ramer, P.L.L.C., in Asheville. We bring together more than 30 years of combined experience of workers’ compensation knowledge and skill to help injured workers and their families receive the medical treatment and pay benefits they are entitled to.
