If you or a loved one has experienced a work injury and have questions as to your rights and options, please call Wright, Worley, Pope, Ekster & Moss, PLLC to schedule a free workers’ comp. consultation.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in small business owners in Southeastern North Carolina and across the State contacting our offices regarding uninsured workers’ compensation claims. This is partially attributed to negative media attention cast on the State of North Carolina in recent years regarding the number of uninsured employers in the State and the terrible effects that this has on the injured workers. In North Carolina, generally all employers who regularly employee three (3) or more employees must maintain workers’ compensation insurance. Of great importance is that there are two vital exceptions to the “three employee” standard that triggers the workers’ compensation requirement.
