What do workers’ compensation benefits cover?

You’ve been injured on the job, and a doctor has told you that your condition is so severe that you won’t be able to work for a long time. You should file for workers' compensation to receive benefits that may allow you to recover from your injuries without going broke. Whether you're filing a workers' compensation claims in Charlotte or elsewhere in North Carolina, workers' comp can provide you with the following benefits:

  • Medical expenses associated with treating your injuries
  • A portion of your lost wages (two-thirds of your average weekly wage)

In the process of qualifying for workers' comp in North Carolina, you may also receive an impairment rating, which can be used to claim disability benefits. If you receive disability benefits, however, your workers' comp benefits will be offset by the amount of the disability benefits.

If a family member was killed on the job in North Carolina, you may be entitled to death benefits. An experienced Winston-Salem attorney at Lanier Law Group, P.A. can give you more information about the benefits you may be entitled to after the death of a loved one.

Can I choose my own doctor?

If you file for benefits through the workers' compensation system, your employer is responsible for paying your medical expenses and has the right to direct your medical treatment. This means your employer may choose a doctor in Winston-Salem or elsewhere in North Carolina. You do, however, have the right to ask the North Carolina Industrial Commission for permission to see a doctor of your choosing. It is important that you get permission before you see a doctor. If your own doctor treats you without permission from the Industrial Commission, you may jeopardize your workers' compensation benefits.
