Workers’ Comp In North Carolina

Workers’ Compensation is a type of no-fault insurance carried by businesses to provide benefits to full and part-time employees who are injured on the job in North Carolina.

While workers are out of work, workers’ compensation provides certain benefits including paid medical care and partial replacement of lost wages.

Under workers’ compensation, your wage replacement benefit is calculated based on your average weekly earnings during the last 52 weeks of employment. The wage replacement benefit equates to approximately 67 percent of your average weekly wage, not to exceed the maximum weekly amount of $1,102, as of 2021. North Carolina adjusts the maximum amount each year.

The calculator uses a variety of inputs to provide a general idea of you how much you may be entitled to claim.

Some employers and insurance administrators try to deny valid claims for workers’ compensation benefits. If your claim for workers’ compensation benefits has been denied, you may request a hearing before the North Carolina Industrial Commission to challenge the decision. It is helpful to be represented by a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney who knows the rules and legal procedures that apply to administrative hearings before the Industrial Commission.
