I got hurt at work, do I qualify for Workers Compensation?

Generally speaking, if you had an accident at work that led to an injury, you qualify for workers compensation in North Carolina. Typically, an accident involves a slip, trip, fall or other untoward event. However, simply being able to describe a specific traumatic event may be sufficient if the injury is to your back. Also, if you suffer from a disease related to your work environment, you may qualify for workers compensation. The law is complex and every situation deserves to be analyzed on its own merits.
