Workers’ compensation is an employer-funded system that takes care of you if you become injured while performing a work-related task at your job. It ensures monetary protection and compensation for lost wages. It also provides rehabilitation and urgent care needs for your injury.
The system also protects employers from lawsuits in the event of an injury, assigning no fault to anyone.
Though workplaces are designed to be as safe as possible with specialized training, safety equipment, and more, accidents can still happen. A work-related injury can occur on the job site while driving or when performing required duties.
In most cases, work injuries are mild and don’t interfere with your ability to perform your tasks. However, if you experience an injury that requires treatment and compensation, the Carolina Urgent Care team can help — especially if your injury causes you to take time off from work.
