|From the moment an employee is injured, there are time limits for both the employee and employer. Employers must make certain reports to the court system for North Carolina Worker's Compensation case, Industrial Commission. Employer reports do not satisfy the reporting obligations of the employee or extend the time limit for the employee to make his claim.
Under certain circumstances, an injured employee may report their injury to their employer and even be paid for time missed from work. If the employee does not make the proper filing with the Industrial Commssion, the employee's claim can be dismissed and they will receive no further benefits.
It is critical to know what benefits to demand. An injured worker is entitled to numerous benefits, unfortunately it is not the employer's obligation to advise their injured employee of these benefits.
