Welcome to the Information Specialists Page!
Who We Are
The N.C. Industrial Commission created the Workers’ Compensation Information Specialists Section (formerly known as the Ombudsman Section) to assist claimants who are not represented by an attorney*, employers, or other parties in protecting their rights. In addition, the Workers’ Compensation Information Specialists Section serves as the information source for the Industrial Commission, and answers questions pertaining to all aspects of workers’ compensation.
*Claimants who are represented by attorneys should direct all questions and concerns regarding their workers’ compensation claims to their attorneys.

Who We Are NOT
We do NOT provide Legal Advice
The NC 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 3rd-party entity to assist or support citizens. Any specific legal questions or requests for interpretation of General Statues should be directed to a legal professional of your choice. Claimants who are represented by attorneys should direct all questions and concerns regarding their workers’ compensation claims to their attorneys.
