Injuries that occur on the job often lead to workers’ compensation claims, which are governed by Chapter 97 of the North Carolina General Statutes. Workers’ compensation requires application of numerous rules and legal doctrines that apply only to those cases. These types of claims are not based upon fault, which generally means even if the employee was responsible for his or her injury, that employee may still recover under the Workers’ Compensation Act. PCKB selectively handles workers’ compensation matters and has resolved such matters for our clients.
