Medical Care Under North Carolina Workers' Comp Laws

What Medical Care Are You Entitled to After a Workplace Injury?

It is a common mistake to think that a workplace injury entitles the injured worker to receive any and all medical care and treatment necessary to get better. While benefits do include medical treatment for your injuries, there are specific rules that the insurance carrier will expect you to follow.

Your medical treatment while receiving workers' comp benefits must be reasonably expected to:

  • Affect a cure
  • Provide relief
  • Lessen the period of disability

Again, the effect of this is that not all medical treatment is at an injured employee's disposal. Under workers' compensation laws, the right to medical care has some constraints. It is not indefinite. It is important that your lawyer fights to ensure you provided competent, effective medical care for your all injuries and symptoms. Once you have been placed in MMI and all medical compensation benefits have been paid and depending on the circumstances of your case, as your attorney, I will discuss all options available to you at that time.
