Will Filing for Workers' Compensation Hurt My Employer?

If you have worked for a company for a number of years, it may start to feel like your home away from home. You may have become good friends with your co-workers and become invested in the long-term success of the company, feeling like it is yours in some small way.

WorkersComp18_07022014When you start to feel this way about your company and your co-workers, you want to do everything you can to contribute to its success. If you become injured on the job, you may feel hesitant to file for workers' compensation benefits because you don't want to hurt the company.

However, as Workers' Compensation Lawyer Barry Jennings explains, it is the law in North Carolina that businesses with more than three employees carry workers' compensation insurance or be self-insured for workers' compensation benefits. That means that if a worker is injured and qualifies for benefits, the insurance carrier or self-insured employer will pay the claim.

Just like auto insurance protects you against losses in an accident, workers' compensation insurance protects businesses against losses if one of their workers gets hurt. And just like auto insurance, you shouldn't think twice about using these benefits if you have been injured: That's the reason they exist.

If you are hurt on the job, you could be out thousands of dollars for medical expenses and lost time from work. It's only right that you should be compensated for these losses, and the law is there to protect you.
