Injury By Accident
Injury By Accident – North Carolina Workers’ Comp. Workers’ compensation claims can happen in a few ways. Injury By accident or Occupational Disease.
Injury by accident might easy to understand, but in reality, it is far more complicated than it sounds. Often, with work-related injuries, there’s no doubt that the employee was injured while on the job. These obvious injuries often occur when an employee falls off of a ladder, has a slip and falls or is injured by a piece of machinery or equipment. Back injuries are often where the work injury claims can fall into a gray area. Often back injuries go unreported because the injured worker doesn’t think the injury is serious. During a workday, they may bend over to pick up a tool or piece of equipment and, in the process, injure their back. Most of the time, the injured worker does not report the back injury and goes home. Unfortunately, often these injuries lead to a disabling injury, which prevents that worker from returning to work. From this point, the manner in which the claim is reported, the statements that are made, and the steps that are taken are critical in determining whether or not the injured worker is going to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
