It is recommended that workers seek treatment right away for any injury, even if it initially appears to be a minor one. This means consulting with a qualified doctor immediately after a work-related accident or experiencing the initial symptoms of toxic exposure on the job. Receiving prompt treatment allows you to achieve faster recovery, as well as prevent employers and insurance companies from downplaying the seriousness of the medical condition or arguing that the injury is not related to work. At Cardinal Law Partners, we have stellar expertise in helping injured workers who require home nursing services.
What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation insurance covers the rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and medical expenses of employees who have been injured in the course and scope of their job. North Carolina law also requires workers’ compensation insurance companies to pay death benefits to deceased workers’ family members and dependents.
