Welcome to the Claims Administration Section
Who We Are
The Claims Administration section performs a variety of functions for the North Carolina Industrial Commission. In addition to processing workers’ compensation injury reports (Form 19) and claims forms (Form 18 or 18B), Claims also processes the forms related to claim acceptance or denial, return to work, payment of permanent partial disability ratings, occupational diseases, death claims and claim closures. Claims Administration also researches insurance coverage information, assigns carrier codes and updates claimant, carrier and third party administrator addresses. You may contact Claims Administration for file copy requests or information about claim status. (Note: Please e-mail completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
How We Can Help
Employees in the Claims Administration section are here to help employees, employers, carriers, medical providers, attorneys and other interest parties with information on insurance coverage, claim status, and file copy requests.
Who We Are Not
We Do Not Provide Legal Advice
The North Carolina Industrial Commission cannot provide you with legal advice on your case. Since we are a state agency dedicated to objectivity and neutrality, we cannot suggest an attorney, insurance carrier, medical provider or any other third party entity to assist or support citizens. For resources regarding how to locate an attorney, please visit the North Carolina State Bar “Find A Lawyer” web page, http://www.ncbar.gov/public/findalawyer.asp
The N.C. Industrial Commission offers a number of databases that provide information on insurance coverage of an employer in the State of North Carolina, as well as information about Workers' Compensation and Tort cases.
