Workers' Compensation or Not?
That is the Question.
The North Carolina Worker's Compensation Act is designed to provide injured workers a quick compensation mechanism while limiting the employers financial liability for industrial accidents.
The North Carolina worker's Compensation Act is a no-fault system providing limited compensation for an employee's loss of earning capacity due to an industrial accident, which is liberally construed in favor of the worker--as far as it goes. The employee does not have to prove the employer acted negligently when seeking compensation for an industrial accident or occupational disease, and he may not file a lawsuit for damages against his employer. On the other hand, the Act does not
require the employer to pay for an injured employee's "pain and suffering", nor does it require the employer to act as a general health and accident insurer for all injuries of its employees.
