Is My Knee Or Joint Injury Covered?
In North Carolina, workers’ compensation does not cover all types of injuries. For example, if your injury results from performing regular work activities, it is generally not covered. However, if your injury was caused by an accident that occurred at work, it is covered. In some cases, subtle differences in how the accident happened can be important. For example, if you were performing work activities that varied from your regular work duties, your injury may be covered.
Too often, injured workers who do not have legal representation will have their claim denied simply because they were unaware of the rules. For this reason, it is important to talk to an attorney before you give a recorded statement to the workers’ compensation insurance company representative. Anything you say can be used against you to deny your claim.
