What injuries are covered under workers’ compensation?
The other day someone from Rockingham called me and wanted to know if they could file a claim for lung disease, having received exposure years ago. Workers’ compensation covers different types of injuries. First of all, workers’ compensation covers the obvious injuries, such as slip, trips, or falls that can occur at work and that are tied to your work. The second classification of injuries are occupational diseases. In North Carolina, you can file claims for things like lung disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, or reactive airways disease, and you have two years from the time the disease is diagnosed to file that claim.
