This bulletin is designed to give general information only. It is not a law book. Further information may be obtained by writing a letter to the Executive Secretary or Workers’ Compensation Information Specialists of the North Carolina Industrial Commission. When writing or calling the Commission about a specific case, always give the name of the injured employee, the Commission’s file number for the claim or the employee’s Social Security Number, and, if available, the name of the employer and date of injury.

You may also consult with an attorney of your choice, which may be at your expense. If you need assistance locating an attorney in your community who is familiar with workers’ compensation law, you may contact the North Carolina Bar Association’s nonprofit Lawyer Referral Service: http://www.ncbar.org/public-pro-bono/lawyer-referral-service/for-the-public.aspx. The toll free telephone number is (800) 662-7660 or (919) 677-8574 from out of state or from the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. The Lawyer Referral Service will provide the name of an attorney willing to discuss your question for a nominal fee or no fee. Mention workers’ compensation when requesting a referral.
