Besides workplace accidents, are there other workers’ compensation claims?

Yes. Another type of claim besides workplace accidents are occupational diseases. Occupational diseases can consist of everything from bursitis to asbestosis. Specific expert medical testimony is usually required to prove an occupational disease, but the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act specifically makes occupational disease claims compensable in certain circumstances.
