Not hurt "On the Job?"

In North Carolina, an employee does not have to be hurt on the employer's premises to be entitled to workers compensation benefits. In some situations an injury will "arise out of the employment" even if you are away from the workplace. For instance, your injury may be compensable if you were doing something that benefitted your employer when you were hurt. If your employer tells you that your injury is not compensable because you were hurt away from the jobsite, make sure to contact a North Carolina Workers Compensation attorney. An experienced attorney will be able to tell you if your injury is compensable or not. If you have questions about this subject, please contact Christian Ayers or John Ayers at Ayers, Whitlow and Dressler, (704) 377-5050.
