Imagine that you have been injured on the job. That’s bad news, but there may be some peace of mind in knowing that your employer is subject to workers’ compensation coverage.
But then you start to wade into the particulars of getting your claim started, and it soon becomes apparent that it may not be a seemingly straightforward proposition. Maybe your employer claims that you were horsing around at the time of the accident and tries to deny your claim. Or the company’s workers’ compensation insurer seems to be trying to lowball the compensation you think you need.
What should you do?
You could try turning to the North Carolina workers’ compensation law itself, to see if it offers any help. And then you may encounter a lot of legal jargon or confusing blocks of text.
