Does Workers’ Compensation Only Cover Medical Bills?

Workers’ compensation insurance may protect you if you are injured on the job, and as such, it may provide for much more than just your medical expenses.

As North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorney Barry Jennings explains, North Carolina workers’ compensation law provides for the payment of medical expenses and lost wages for those who qualify. Depending on the extent of your injury and how the injury occurred, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical treatment, as well as the time you missed from work.

The compensation you receive may be paid out by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier or by your employer.
