What is workers’ compensation?

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.

Workers’ compensation provides employees with the funding needed to offset the financial burden of being unable to work. Carolina Urgent Care can help represent your needs to your employer.

What makes someone eligible for workers’ compensation?

To receive workers’ compensation benefits, you need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be an employee for an employer (self-employment typically doesn’t qualify)
  • Employer must have workers’ compensation insurance
  • Injury or illness must be work-related
  • You must meet your state’s deadlines for reporting your injury and filing your claim

If you have questions about your eligibility, talk to the professionals at Carolina Urgent Care. They can provide answers.

How can I get workers’ compensation?

If you’ve been injured on the job, you have limited time to submit paperwork to receive workers’ compensation benefits. When an injury occurs, the worker and the employer must act promptly. Otherwise, the claim could be denied.

When an injury occurs, your employer needs to:

  • Give you the appropriate paperwork and guidance
  • File the claim with the insurer
  • Comply with state law for reporting work injuries

As the employee, you need to notify your employer of your injury and include the date and time it occurred, the type of injury you sustained, and the events that led to your injury. You then need to file a formal workers’ compensation claim.

If you’ve been injured or on the job, call Carolina Urgent Care to file a workers’ compensation claim. They can help determine your eligibility and walk you through the process. Call or book an appointment online today.
